Funny thing, her grandparents own a bait shop lol it lived for about 15 years plowing snow their then got retired.. She got it instead of them letting it rot away or scrapping it.. We have the deck and I think a home made snow blade..

Are those the original headlights that came with it? I believe those were an option back in 61

Yes original head lights!! It's a rare option from what I know! I have the tail light to stick on when I get the pan to mount fenders..

That is one nice machine.  The Original is one of my favorites, it was so solidly made that it is almost like having a little ag tractor.
