Serial Number Found!
Produced Year: 1966
Produced Month: January
Engine Model: N/A
Just wanted to share that, was this one of the earlier ones produced? I seen that the 1050 was made 66-69 so since its a jan. 66, does that mean it is an early model? or were they produced in 65 as a 66?

Your 1050 is a 1967. I have noticed that Bolens seemed to use the wisconsin engines a year before.
The 1966 were TR-10D's the 67'-69' used the TRA-10D
The 1050's also changed their shade of white over the years. You need a really sharp eye to tell though. But if you lined up a 66' and a 69' you could definitely be able to notice the color change.

The 69 would be more of a almond...

Another way to tell for sure is in 69' they started using black steering wheels, but also continued to use white.... so it is still hard to tell on the white wheel models.
I know the hood is a little rusty but you can still see the true color in some areas
