Finally went and picked up the little 813 my wife's Uncle wanted me to have.
This is the condition it was in . It still shines after 40+ years.

WOW

 

That needs a good coat of Wax and put in a Museum.

 

I've never seen anything that original and clean and unmolested.Was it even used?

WOW!!!

If all that paint is original that is in exceptionally good condition!

You can tell it was well cared for and likely never spend a night outside!

 

Great Find!!

1972 is on the invoice. The snow caster looks like it was never installed.

Thanks everyone. This one actually found me. My mother in-law was telling her brother about my tractors, and he said he had one he wanted to get rid of. 1 1/2 hr drive was worth it.
I didn't realize my wife snapped a picture of it being hauled home.
The headlight lens are crystal clear.

Quick question. I took apart my deck to repaint a while back and now I can't put it back together. Would it be possible to just remove that cover on your deck and snap a couple pics? I'm a little desperate. Thanks
