One the best original tractors I've ever seen. Good luck trying to get all the money he's asking.image.jpg

I'm sorry, but I can't for one second believe that tractor has never been repainted.

I know its nice but back up the truck here. $7500 is crazy money. I hope the seller has thick skin because he is going to get blasted. I would think the $2000 range is more appropriate.

It said "collection".....at this price I kept looking for a list of the other tractors that came with it.

For starters he needs to ditch the reflectors tacked onto it, and I think 'collection' refers to his cartoon character sticker collection on the seatback. =]

I agree with dan. Its obvious that its been reworked at some point in time. Theres now way something with 38 years worth of service can look that good.

I don't think they were that glossy when new. Looks like a modern automotive paint on it. Still a very nice tractor one way or the other . A visit to inspect it up close is bound to reveal the truth if you know where to look.

I'm starting to question this a lot. It seems if you were asking for that kind of $, and you had other pieces in "mint" condition, you would take pics of them also.

I think this is a fake on a couple of levels... Sure wish a member could get eyes on it so we know if it's truly spam or not.

Funny how those bolts on that un-restored deck look so new. That seller is full of Grade A male bovine excrement.
