The earliest versions are nice, 47 till they changed them.  However the prettiest to me are the ones they painted red with the last sytle of sheet metal.

My favorite Cub would be the early model.  Bought the wife a 1948 model with hydraulics.  We both really liked that tractor. 

 

My favorite Low-Boy would be the 184,  Last model year.   Rick

How do you count eleven bars? If I just count the thin ones, I get fifteen.

Early 1954 model with the screen mesh type grill, seeing as how that is what I have out in the shed. :D

Oh, and it was one of the tractors from the family farm. :D
