Got this little guy today from Aaron, or known on here as (antiquetractors). Its a 1958 bolens ride a matic. In great shape. Aaron did a good job on the restoration, all im going to do to it is paint the wheels and detail it a bit. It came with a mower deck, plow, cultivator, and a hitch for a wagon. Just wanted to share the latest find with everybody, and if any of you have a bolens feel free to share some pics.

Thanks!! And thats really cool. That cultivator is a neat piece. I think its neat that the toolbar still has the original decal on it. I will definitely post some more pics of my progress on it.

   Congratulations on your "new" tractor.

I've always liked the looks of those Ride-A-Matics with that cast nose and peanut tank.

I think she will look great once you get the wheels painted and get a set of Ag tires on the rear.

The Green paint is about as close a match to OEM as you can get.

I agree. A set of agriculture tires on the rear is just what she needs. I might try to find some before the summer shows begin

Thanks Aaron!! Were you ever able to find out the color code you used when you painted it? I'm gonna try to have some mixed and do some touching up on it
