TRA -10D
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?

The 1050's were produced from 66'-69'

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.

I bought rustolem almond for my 1050 with the 12d in. I can see the difference from this 67 which you say I have compared to my other one, just curious is the almond color more of a 68 or 69 because im trying to find the year of my tractor and with the 12d in i cant really do that unless there is some other sort of way to tell. Here is a pic of mine, can you tell the year?

The 69 would be more of a almond...

Here is my 69' 850. ( All models changed the white over that time period.) The 850 was also built 66'to 69'

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 areasmisc. pics 6-25-10 001.jpg
