I have never seen or heard of one of these tractors, but is good looking. He's priced too high in my opinion.

Livy Garden Tractor - $1475 (Goldsby, OK)

This is a partially restored Livy Garden Tractor built in the early 1950s by the C.M. Livingston Co. of Tulsa, OK. I recently inherited it from my father who had started a restoration. As far as I can tell, everything appears to be there and nothing looks heavily damaged or destroyed. The large Briggs & Stratton engine is original and turns freely, but doesn't run. The Livingston Co. was also an aluminum foundry and several of the tractor's components are cast aluminum - including the transmission/final drive housing, large belt pulley, steering wheel, miscellaneous adjusting levers, and even the tool box. I've looked it over closely and can see no cracks or breaks on any aluminum castings. Like the engine, the transmission/final drive is not frozen and turns freely. My dad bought four new tires and mounted them on the restored rims - and from photos I've seen of other Livy tractors, I'm guessing he didn't get the wheel color correct.

The photos show the tractor sitting on a flat dolly supported by jack stands on the back and 4x4 blocks under the engine. I slid the wheel hubs on the axle shafts and leaned the big wheels up next to them. The small back wheels w/adjusting levers are leaning against the frame. The flat dolly is mine and I want to keep it.

Please........cash only, no trades, and serious inquiries only.

Don't tell me he's trying to make a killing off "Daddy's machine"! 

 

That's a nice tractor though.  Probably a local thing.

That's a different rig. I'd say its over priced unless he'll put it back together after its painted.

Its a factory piece. I believe it was built out west. I have a reprint of an original add.
