Always gotta love free scores. Hopefully you can find a grill and hood pretty easily. I am going to move the thread over to the Simplicity forum. :D

Good score Brad, those tractors are neat little workhorses. It looks to be in pretty good shape and the price certainly was right! The hardest thing I think is getting used to the fact that they pivot in the middle so the steering wheel goes left and right when the front end goes over uneven ground.
