I think that it looks restored. Don't get me wrong, It's a gorgeous restoration, but when someone puts "mint" in an ad, I think "un-restored and original but in excellent shape". Maybe I'm splitting hairs here, but...

I agree that " mint " condition should be used for something in new from factory condition, not rebuilt, modified and looks like new. It doesn't have the original engine, has been repainted and is missing the front plastic part on the hood. Other than that it does look like a very nice tractor and should make someone a good workhorse.

I guess that word has different meanings to different people,just like "restored".

Sorry Maynard. I meant no offense by that. When I was a kid, I collected coins. Mint meant that the coin was in its original condition from the mint with no cleaning or damage etc. That's just how I think of the word.

:iagree:
Yes, Mint has always had a special meaning to me, becuase of coins. They should word their ad differently. That said, I would love to have it !!
