The 1950 units were crude and lacked a lot of conveniences we take for granted. Even Hydralics let alone Live Hydralics were a rare option. Think I would prefer a bit newer. maybe my high school graduation year? 1969.

IS IT JUST ME (AM I NUTS ?) WENT SNOOPING AROUND AGAIN TODAY LOOKING FOR ANOTHER TRACTOR, AND I DONT CARE WEATHER THIS ONE WAS A HORSE OR NOT, I WANT A TRACTOR FROM MY BIRTH YEAR 1956, WELL THIS ONE WAS PROBABLY A 70s MODEL. YOU WOULD THINK IT SHOULD BE PRETTY EASY, COMPARED TO SOME OF THE TRACTORS SOME OF YOU GUYS WOULD HAVE TO FIND HA HA HA !!!!! MY IDEAL TRACTOR WOULD HAVE TO BE A POND, BUT I WILL TAKE ANYTHING FROM 1956. DOES ANYONE HAVE THAT SPECIAL BIRTH YEAR TRACTOR IN THEIR COLLECTION, THE CLOSET I'VE GOT IS A 58 RJ

I'm a "56" also! No tractor from then, but I ended up with a 1955 2nd design GMC pickup which LOOKS the same as a '56!-LOL! Here's my 1956 license plates I found over 40 years ago!

 

How about changing to the year you graduated high school. That's 78 for me which is a good year for GT's. My 79 317 is close. 

It was by coincidence but I did get a 1975 MF12G a few years ago, my graduation year!

I graduated in 1969.  Apparently we went to different high schools together.   :D    Rick

I gradgeeated in 1970, but I'll take a mid 70's to mid 80's super garden tractor with foot hydro, 3 pt and a loader. Like the one I sold and Eric ended up with!

The Allis Chalmers G ended in 55 according to one source . The Farmall Cub was intended to be a crossover to gardening in that period . Gardens were still big then .    The modern GT was I think a response to farming shifts that started  late 50's on .

 

 I have been known to be full of it .

Another tidbit that occurred to was the BH line which I had no idea existed until this site was found . With all the new converts I may not stand a chance . So I'm thinking Oh , Shaw .

The year something was built with specific hardware was one thing . Who did it can be very interesting .The serial numbers were more an authorization to build in many cases . Not all authorized serial numbers were used . ----- Recognizing trends = = priceless .
