The better buy is the one you like the most . . .

 

Good advice!

If you plan on using it I agree with Kelly, the 100 hands down.  Attachments are easier to get ahold of, the timed mower deck on an Original has parts on it that are no longer available, the 100 is shaft drive whereas the Original is belt driven, frame rail tabs on an Original tend to break at the rear where it attaches to the transmission.  I could go on and on but the bottom line is from a use standpoint the 100 is a much better, user friendly tractor.  For the record we have both here and I like the O's for little show tractors but they are not as nice for use.

I love the look of the original, but it needs more work than the 100, and its not practical.

 

I think the 100 would be a better choice coming from a usage standpoint, and it needs less work. The deck has a few little holes, but its not rusty, and it still works well.

 

I am gonnna get the 100 first, and if i still have room i will get the Original thereafter.

That is too nice. Wouldn't do a cosmetic restore on that. Original looks like it has fender's too.

If you don't buy it your passing up a great deal.  The fenders alone are worth the asking price of the tractor.

It appears to be original and in pretty good shape for a mid 60's machine. I would snap that up in a heartbeat.

That looks great!! I wouldn't restore it either. Leave it as is... maybe a good cleaning and waxing just to make it really shine.
