Yaaaaaaaawwwwn.  So, what your saying is the tractor isn't as old as the OP said it was. And... and it's not as modified as what he said?  And being a diesel it's worth waaaaay more than what he thought???  But, but.... but it's painted black and it's got a funny air filter.   

 

Um hummmmm. . .       Well!

 

Yep, this one fooled me!

The only thing the guy is guilty of is a ugly paint job and muffler/air cleaner installation!

The modifications can be an advantage. I picked up a poor condition but running "JD" 2 years ago. It is actually an HT23 and for $100,  I was very happy. The green and yellow paint seemed to have stopped the heavy rusting that is evident under the paint. I hope to restore it and acquire a NOS still in the box snowplow for it. The plow was sitting in a friends basement when he died but I am very uncomfortable about approaching his widow about it.

 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and many people need better glasses. Good Luck, Rick

 Don't wait to long. A freind of mine died and I felt the same wayabout his WH puller,  The grand kids needed money and she told them they could have the scrap around the garage.  See where i'm going ?    They went in the garage and cut the tires off the aluminum rims then cut the aluminum rims up for short pricing, cut the body up for short steel and smashed the 20hp Kawasakl motor.   In the end they made $153 dollars from a $ 2000 pulling tractor

I kinda like it except for the stacks. I only have two GT's right now 1968 MF12 H I'm restoring & a 1978 Cub 1250 H waiting for some minor repairs. I would never think of doing the custom thing to these but if I had another one I might consider it but would keep it close to the orig. color anyway. Here is one I like also. http://boston.craigs...4183202290.html
