I got a call from a neighbor saying his friend had a Bolens Articulating tractor for sale. As usual I always picture worst case scenario, all rusted out or one of the new "FS" series ones, anyway I never pass on an opportunity to look at a Bolens so I went down to check things out.
I got to his house and as I turned the corner around the garage my jaw just about dropped!
An all original 1965 EK7!!!!!!!!
Believe it or not this was actually going to be scrapped if the guy did not pull this from his neighbor's garage and bring it to his place ( I believe the gentleman who owned this passed away and the property needed to be cleared)
This has never seen a night outside in its entire life and is truly a survivor. There was even a maintenance tag on the shifter!
This will look even better after a wash, I am going to leave everything exactly as it is and put a good coat of wax on her. There are still "nubs" on the 50 year old tires and factory belts all around!
