Hey everybody I acquired this tractor last year and did a complete restoration on it. Fortunately it was all complete and unmolested so I could put it back all original. It's a Dixie made by southland mower company in Selma Alabama. Is there anyone out there that can give me information on this tractor or the Southland mower company? Thanks very much, Chris

I think you said the right word about it... rare!  I've never seen one to know anything about them.  That is one neat machine.  What kind of engine does it pull?

Everyone who sees it says they never saw or heard of one. And it has a Clinton model 1200

Very neat rider. Were those the original colors?

I have seen a very similar drive system once before.

Lat year at the ACAEC show in Ohio, I saw this thing sitting on a trailer.

It's an Islander riding mower. The tin work is completely different, but the drive system on it caught my eye.

Those are the only pics I took of it and know nothing more than the guy wanted $300 for it and I wasn't in the market anyways.

Thanks, and yes those are the original colors. Luckily there were enough traces of original paint on it to match and repaint it exactly the way it used to be. And thanks for the pics of the Islander, I have never seen one before.

Thanks for the comments everyone. The editor of Lawn and garden tractor magazine is in the process of researching this tractor and featuring it in the magazine.
