I have no idea if the asking price is too high or not, but it is a nice looking original tractor.

Was thinking a little high at first, Yet, pretty complete w/out being hacked and changed. It also has hydraulics and lift. All looks pretty good shape, new tires, bet owned by one guy for long time. Can't tell if this is the later wider frame or the smaller channel one, but with that serial thinking later model??  BUT, now thinking the later ones were just 1612's not Jim Dandy's. BUT, the center hood stripes were used in a certain time frame, so someone else will need to date it.  Not the cheapest, but think it would be safe buy and look real nice torn down and painted fresh again.

Not 3pt, just a lifting drawbar.  attachments pinned or bolted to it, yet could raise with hydraulics. That is stock. Later models had 3pt offered and soon became the norm and this lift went away. You COULD get a goofy looking 3pt adapter that bolts flat on this draw bar and has outer links and 3rd link mount right above the bolted on area for awhile. BUT, the arms didn't move apart to mount unit, so not sure if you had to remove a pin each time or what, and then couldn't tilt it like standard 3pt.
