I'll call for you tonight.  I think this was for sale a year or two ago, if I recall.  I'm guessing it's the same one.

Wonder why he has a power unit also pictured, maybe the original engine is too far gone?

Actually the second pic of the engine without the radiator is the original engine for the tractor. The power unit does have the right style radiator though. I've never seen a power unit that was the same as the tractor engine and very few had the right style radiator. The power unit radiator probably says LeRoi instead of Centaur on it. I can't tell from the pictures if the gas tank will be long enough for the tractor or not. The tractor tank had the cap in the center instead of on the end. The tank and radiator are the hardest things to find on these.This tractor looks to be 27-29. The serial number would tell the date.

Not that I would buy it but just wondering what something in that shape goes for no big deal , Al

It's not a problem.  I don't mind calling as I'd like to know as well.  If it's the same one, the owner has another, complete Centaur as well.  I'm also wondering if it is indeed the same one.  I need to satiate my own curiosity.

Doug,

I'm the admin for a vintage tractor group on Facebook and one of the members posted it a few weeks back. He knows the gentleman that owns it and is pictured riding it. Apparently this guy has several. He's in the midwest somewhere. I could ask if needed.

Thanks Matt, I know him too. It's probably my fault he's in the hobby. I just wondered if you were in Plain City for the national last year and I missed you. It looks like it was taken there. I think I was in front of him.

He just edited his ad.  He's asking $350 for everything (see ad).  He said the one engine is all there and should run.  Probably worth it for the engine alone.  That's a LeRoi engine, isn't it?  Didn't they use a LeRoi?  Can't remember off the top of my head.
