That is identical to mine, being the White's Hardware stores were a Texas based chain of a few stores. I wonder how that one made it's way to the Carolina's? Great Machine!!

Nice 990! With the original muffler still intact it could mean that it has low hours!

That trans axle was used in several different brands of GT's. You will find them with 4 hole in MTD, 5 hole in Massey, Ford/Jac. and 6 holes on another brand I can't think of right now.

I see it has the original seat yet, the hat section seat base is still there, I see so many tractors that when they replace the seat they don't put it back on and then the seat hits the fenders when you sit on it.

Did you get a year on it yet? if it has the hole in the left frame it is older than 75'.

As far as I know, there are no serial number breakdowns available for MTD built tractors.  The model number is actually where you'll find the model year though, assuming White's Hardware used the standard MTD model number format.  What's the model number on the sticker?
