He certainly would have been an interesting guy to have been able to talk with about these Ridemasters.
The article states that he started working for FMC in 1946 and shows a photo of him on a Ridemaster with the date as 1946 but that photo date could very well just be an assumption made by whoever wrote up the article.
I agree with Aaron, it sure would be nice if Bolens had kept better records.
I have read a lot on the Ridemaster tractors and talked with a few owners and I use to think that I knew a lot about them.
However, the more I read and the more people I talk with, the more confused I have become.
The only consistent thing that I've found is that you can't believe everything you read or everything you here on these tractors.
