Not to be the bad guy but,

 

1. Did he have a photos and documentation of it before the restoration?

2. Does he know where the original textured seat pan is, and why is his painted white instead of black?

3. The seat pad is a later year model dyed red and not even OEM JD. since I don't see the JD logo embossed in it

4. Why does it only have one Hydro lever and no front remotes if it's an H3?

 

The 1969 Patio (Custom Color) is the easiest year model to forge, since the model numbers don't show any difference between the Patio and green models.

 

Guys Please be sure you are buying a true Custom Color.

 

It is a very nice looking GT though. Thanks for sharing!!

I have never seen or heard a Kohler K run that smooth and quiet. The rubber mounted ones in the 3i4's don't have the balance gears and they will shake the tractor to bits if let idle that slow. The factory spec for a 314 is 22-2300rpms for idle. It's loud at that speed. 

  That 140 sounded great!!

The patio's are nice. I did not walk down that side of the grounds. I did see a nice yellow 110 come by on the back of a truck. Thanks for sharing!

Brian is spot on, the money on these are the seats and hood if they are not the correct one. the money drops fast

 

It does look to be a very nice tractor,and as far as running sometimes you get a tractor that just runs sweet I have 3 or 4 that I just love the way they run

I have contemplated a custom color RF110 just because using the light yellow for the seat and hood.

Travis, I have seen a couple RF done in the Custom Colors and they look very cool! Some of the Deere purest won't like it but, It's yours to do as you see fit.

 

My Daughter wants to do one in Dogwood White and Pink, go figure..

Well he showed me a few photo's from 1977 he said or it with its Deck on cutting his Yard an it was clear the ole girl was a true Patio. the Seat was modded from a MTD Lawn mower. an for the Hydraulics he removed the other two leaver's since all he used it for was mowing grass an the front outlets he removed an are just covered up.

its a 1969 it has the Early rear end in it with Disk Brakes instead of Drum brakes, which i was surprised about but over all for 2500$ it came with with a Deck an a #80 Cart he said there White as well but im not for sure if they were original or not.

Nice tractor even if that engine sound was from something else. It sure was a nice strong smooth idle!

she does look good, she does sound good too.  I would not have removed the 2 hyd. levers tho....  I like seeing the optional hyd. in the back too.  no matter what any one says, I would be one very proud owner if it was mine!
