I have been looking at this GT & with the research I have gathered I believe it's around late fifties RAM. The ones I have compared to are close but none have the gear box that high up in the middle. Could this have been changed? I like the round nose RAM's better but if I could get this at a good price I might consider it. Thanks for any help.

Jim

:ditto:

 

 

Someone hacked her up pretty good.

I'd pass on it if your looking for a nice original one to have or restore.....

It looks to be either a 1959 or 1960 Model.

The more I think about it the more I get discouraged about it. I really don't need it I have plenty to do with what I have. At least I learned something. I do want a Bolens GT next though I'm sure of that. I really love the H16 a lot.

The only thing better than an H16 would be a Large Frame. The Large Frame attachments are hrder to find and alot more expensive. Good Luck, Rick
