Nice tractor, all depends what you want and can pay. A little more than I would go for. Noel

Really, I thought they were all the variables until Roper took over in 66?

 

It is definitely not a 50's, maybe 67? motor is not stock and it looks to have been repainted,

He does state that it comes with 2 extra motors, 2 front blades, extra tires.rims, chains, wheel weights, and an extra parts tractor, trailer.

While still not 1000, he does have 6-700 in tractors and implements/parts.

IMHO, I think that even 6 is way optimistic. The condition of the parts unit and the other implements would have to be much, much better than I am thinking they would be to warrant that cabbage here unless there is a freshly rebuilt engine or something like that.

In 1964, Roper produced the Custom line, during the same time that the old DB style tractors were being sold. Later models of customs were custom 6 and so forth. All customs have a foot clutch and a 3 speed box. I believe they were also Red/White tractors. A likely model number would be something like 917.9900. There has been a rumor for yrs that Sears built another tractor called Industrial/Commercial, that came in a black/white color. I've never been able to find any info on these. There are also Craftsman tractors, which used a foot clutch, and were built by Newark Ohio, which was the company that Sears put in charge of the DB plant in 1962. Newark built all kinds of walk-behind mowers and some little butt buggy riders.
