It's not a C-165. That would be a black hood. I thought it said C-111. It's an eight speed standard trans. If it is a C-111, it will have a Briggs instead of a Kohler.

C-125? Would be a 12 hp Kohler, about that era body style.
Does it run?

This is the add,

Wheel horse lawn tractor comes with mower deck, snow blower, wheel weights, tire chains

I would assume that it runs looking at the pics I would guess it is not a real big GT.

To me it looks like a red tractor with 4 wheels and possibly a wheel Horse ( for it says so on the back).

It appears to be a 78-79 C series. Its an 8 speed ( 3 speed with hi/lo plus reverse ) . A very strong simple tractor.

If it runs well, it's certainly worth the money. I likes it!!!

Might not be big, but fairly capable.
My knee jerk is that it's high end of market... EXCEPT for the fact that that particular shade of red prices almost like green.

That's not a small tractor. Even the "B" series just has smaller wheels.
The engine is the thing. It could by an eight horse. Or, as much as a sixteen horse.
Could also be a Tecumseh, Briggs or, a Kohler. The little Wheel horses had verticle shaft engines.
The price is reasonable if, it runs. But I'd want to know it runs! Also those trans are great. But, they do have a weakness. The shifter fork can be broken if someone tried to shift it on the fly. For $500, the trans should function fine.

That's true but none of the old heavy duty gear drive GT trans can be shifted on the fly without damage.

The snowblower is worth $200, the mower deck $150 and the wheel weight and chains at least $50. How can you lose?

Looks like you're getting an excellent value; if that's a 48" deck, there is $250 alone, and close to that for the snowthrower too.  Plus the weights and chains.  That is a larger size Garden Tractor (but the 'D-series' and 500's are larger), your 'C-series' and can take most any WH implement '73–'08, which are common.
