I bought these 2 WH at the Dover, PA. auction a couple years ago and they are now home. The very first GT I ever used was the Brand New 1257 that Dad bought in 1967. It was stolen in Ga. several years ago when Dad lived there. So I wanted to find one and restore it to give to him. That was a very useful tractor and we used it for everything including mowing, gardening, snow removal, barn cleaning and winning several pulling Championships in 1969 to 1973 in Indiana. I got both bought for less then the wheel weights are worth.

I knew I should have asked you what model the Wheel Horses where because I have a few NOS drive belts that will fit both of them.

Nice Horses, Brian. Your Dad will be very happy to have that 1257 again.

On a side note, I'm very adoptable!
