That looks to be in pretty good shape. For the price, I'd take it too.

Could you please ask him what that little rider is, in front of the Ford 75?

Looks to be pretty straight and complete to me. I'd say it's a buy. If you do pick it up, make sure you get it running well because winding up that starter rope will get old fast  :D

Welcome to GTT.

 

Thanks for getting back to me.

I thought maybe it was one of these Massey 24.

I'm looking for one.

This was called the "Suburban 24"

It should be either a 1964 or 1965 If you have the model number or engine year that would pinpoint when exactly it was made.

The engine was swapped out at one time and is a 3.5 off a push mower the engine it's self is a 69
I also use to have a 69 and 70 mini huffys wish I kept them lol

Now I have a model 71 cub cadet and a 1970 ford lt75 that is going to be made as a 50's style hot rod

Hi gearheadmike, I have been in such a drift with things lately I never got back to your father. I just had too many things on my plate to buy the 70. I'll regret it later I'm sure, but I'm glad you joined up so we can see what's up with those other gems.

No prob I actually just sold it about 2 weeks ago and now I'm kicking myself in the a$$ be cause I need a dash for my 1970 ford 75 and have no clue where to find one.
