Kind of high, but I bet he would entertain offers. If I had 1500.00 I'd offer and that is amazing since I dont Collect John Deere's, All the same its a nice setup with power angle blade, tiller, and deck

Not sure why the 15 horse (should be 14).  I have been burned on the "complete rebuild" so paperwork is a must. Also he should know if its .10, .20 or .30 over. Also ask if Chinese parts were used for the rebuild. Run it for quite a while then shut off with white cardboard under the tractor. Oil leaks are expensive to fix. I always ask how long they have owned it. Short ownership suggest seller is just flipping iron. They seldom know true condition and can be unpleasant to deal with.  Personally I am happy to pay more for the right one. Good luck!

All my tractors came from the original owners, relatives  or 2nd owners that knew the owners, I dont buy stuff that has been spray painted, or "restored", I also dont buy junk or rust, no point in it. I hear this all the time, "I rebuilt the 14hp, now its a 15 or 16 horse", yeah right. I wish people knew how stupid they sound

It wouldn't take much to restore that one along with the implements.

That's what I thought, it looks like a real nice original or close to it

Late 140 would be a keeper for me... if the price was $800 lower.  The 4-way blade and tiller/pto would fetch some green alone.
