"Bolens 1455 Large frame tractor with factory Johnson front end loader. Tractor runs really good, it needs a throttle cable and fine tuning. Does not smoke at all. The hydro is very peppy on it. The loader works excellent. It is a factory bolt on one with separate pump and reservoir. It has brand new tires on the rear. Asking $2085 or B.O !"

They must of thought they had a John Deere when they went to paint the tractor!

Yes they did.

 

In fact, Bolens was painting their tractors Green right up until the time John Deere starting making GTs.

 

I'm thinking that Bolens changed colors so as not to be confused with an inferior tractor.

 

That ad has been up for quite some time.  I never bothered to post it because it's so ridiculously priced.

What is a good price on this?  GT loaders mostly 1500+ running in n.e.
