Anyone have one ? I've seen one in all my Bolens buying years. Since 1999
It's on my sons tube frame. I bought a package that included it a few years back.
I assume they are far and few between. But since I don't really follow the tube frame stuff, I'm not sure.

Well anyway, I'm considering selling all the tube stuff we have around here, most common except for the cab I'm thinking.

He's kinda lost interest in the stuff, he'd rather drive the large frames. Which is fine with me, we have to much stuff anyway.

I guess I base the price off the package off of the cab, since I'm sure it would be the most desirable item in the package.

I know some hate the "what's it worth" questions, but I'm asking anyway.

What's a tube frame cozy cab worth ?

It's in ok shape, but both rear pieces of glass have cracks in them.

Got a picture or two? That may help. Thanks. I've seen Cozy Cabs listed anywhere from $200-$450 here in Maine. Not sure what they actually get for them though. Condition, style, lights, wiring, doors (hard or fabric), etc. all contribute significantly.

I've only seen 3-4 of the Tubeframe cozy cabs in my years of collecting.

As for price I have nothing to go by as I never seen any for sale, yours looks to be complete and in great shape.

 

 

 

Not to go off topic here, but is that an older Bolens Pull behind Cart I see there on the Pallet?!!!

Yes, I bought that cart on CL about 5 or so years ago. It even came with a wooden tail gate which I think was original ? Not sure.

Yeah, they did have wooden tailgates.

They kept the tailgates wooden for quite a few years. The early Red ones for the tube frames in the mid 60's still had wooden tailgates.

 

 

What kind of hitch is on the front? :wewantpics:  :D

sorry guys but we just made a deal on all the stuff. I tried to buy the 1257 with the cab when I bought the HT20D but he said it was his sons an I knew he really didn't want to let go of that either but he knew it was going to a great home so I told him if he changed his mind let me know and sure enough he called me yesterday and me made a dea... I grease it everyday I run it , check all the fluids and bolts I learned from the best my dad and grandfather. he ran his 850 for 40 years and there was nothing wrong with it he just wanted something newer... so when I get it home I will have some pics to share with you all and by the way sorry I been M.I.A I been working 15hrs a day

I hadn't considered selling the cart. But if I do, I'll let you know.

I'm waiting for Sam to come get all the tube frame stuff and 2 cat 0 attachments. Hasn't made it yet.

Here is a pic of the hitch as requested. The model # tag is too far gone to read.

Glad to see it going to a good home Ken.  FWIW, an all metal Cozy on a green tractor would pull pretty close to $800.  Go figure....

So it's "rare" ? Lol

I'll most likely sell it, the kids used it mostly for pulling each other around the yard. And my son would help haul firewood around with it as a great excuse to drive a tractor.

And Average Joe, maybe I should paint it green. : ) cause I sure didn't get that much for it.
I'm glad to see it going to Sam, he's a true die hard Bolens fan with MANY years in life ahead of him. His collection is getting pretty extensive already.

He just called and he's on his way. Soon my yard will be 100 % tube frame free.

Tyler isn't happy, but he knows it's best not to have so many tractors around. As long as he gets to use the HT-23 it's all good. He already can't wait to go to pa plow day next year. Since this year went so much better then last years. He's a pro plower now, like D Jr was last year.
