Back in early May I picked up a Case 130 off Craigslist . I've always like Case tractors because of there rugged simple  design and being a heavy duty worker . There not much on looks , but that's not what you buy a tractor for .

If I wasn't into cub cadets they'd be my next choice of GT .

 

Anyway , I hadn't had time to work on it till today . From the looks of it , rusted solid throttle and choke cable it hadn't been running for a while .

A little gas , PB blaster on the cables , new battery and about 20 minutes of tinkering and   ITS ALIVE .

 

I put a muffler on it as it was a little loud .

 

I actually drove it around the yard today , and the 10 hp Kohler sounds great .

Its a little strange driving it with the long hydro control  handle and weird not having a brake pedal ....LOL

 

Its going to need one rear tire replaced , luckily I have one that matches the other side , just have to take it off a cub rim .

 

I think I'll keep it for a while , I just wish it had the front PTO and a mower deck .

But it did come with a 42 inch Case snowblade .

 

I'll post more pictures later

Glad to hear you got it up and running with little work. It's not a bad looking 130 either. :thumbs:

Great tractor! Congrats! That would make an awesome restoration project, or just leave it original!

However, how did you come up with 1965 for the year? They where only made in '67 and '68.

In 1965 the 130 & 180 was the first case out after colt.

I thought that it was still colt in '65, and the 100 series case tractors only ran for two years. I did second guess myself after I posted before! :D

They still made 3 colt models in 65  with the 130 & 180 .

That would be a good tractor to leave original . Can't make out does it have its Abe on front .Let me know. I think there is a lot more of the early ones restored then left original. If it's not touched up Keep it out of bad weather. From photo looks really good shape.

When did it become only case?

In 1967 Case dropped the Colt line. 

Case acquired Colt in 1965 and they made both lines of GT's next to each other. The Case had a Kohler engine the Colt had a Tecumseh.

Nice buy. Looks to be missing the side panels like mine.

Good luck with it. :thumbs:

That's not a bad looker!  Those Kohler engines were one of the best.
