Unfortunately it did not come with a deck or fenders. But it is in very good condition.

Nice looking Original .

 

It look likes its an early Original , whats the serial number ?

 

The early production Originals have the collared front spindles and no steering adjustment hole in the console .

 

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that your front axle is installed backwards , The grease fittings face towards the back of the tractor .

OK,  I got it home and unloaded.  The Serial number is definitely 7074 (stamped into the frame on right side)  This appears to an an early model.  I do see the collared from spindles and appears to be no steering adjustment hole.  Yes, the front axle is installed backwards, apparently the tractor was restored awhile back and not properly  reassembled.  

 

It looks like this is an early 1961 model as serial numbers for this year are 501 - 23675

I got a rise in my Levi's seeing it's a four digit, sweet :thumbs: 

Oh, that's my phone, but still an excitable tractor.

7074 makes it an April 1961 made unit . They started making Originals in January 1961 so yours was made in the 4th month of production making it a fairly early O .  

 

Nice find !!
