There is more then two of these today. But yes they are rare.

I have seen this tractor in person. It is cool.

 

BTW this tractor has been for sale for about 1 year.

Looks a lot like a Wheelhorse  1054 or ? with that cast grill and straight hood. Maybe design stolen from them???   Anyway, yeah, why not some better pictures. Seems like a lot of money for tractor that rough, but guess rarity plays in here. BUT, if it is so rare, maybe they were just junky tractors with problems, why else not many made?

They are not to rare. The rarer one is the garden all version. The early Brillion's were just garden all design with different paint and motor.

Best pictures I could find at the moment. Only ever saw one garden all version.

Any Brillion GT is rare.

 

What does a Garden all Brillion look like?

Its the parts tractor in the second picture. I meet a guy at a show who had the Brillion and garden all tractor sitting side by side and from the research he had done, When garden all got bought out by wheel horse Brillion started building the Brillion version of the tractor. If you see them sittin side by side the only difference is the badge, color, and motor. The whole frame, steering, tranny, most of the sheet metal. There about the same tractor.

The engine listed in the Craigslist machine from Wisconsin looks, to me, too new to be the original in that tractor.
