Would that number make it # 1, 101, or does the R change the order?

Anyways, congrats! Nice Bolens!

That is a great find!! :thumbs: Just to bad the original engine isn't on it.  IMO I'd leave it look the way it is, it looks great for the age.

That is fascinating.  There haven't been too many #1 garden tractors showing up. 

 

Jerome, are you drooling any yet?
