No pictures, sorry. One for sale in my area, just wondering what year it is. Model M-I. Serial 3962. Letter or number in front of the 3. Can't see it well enough to make it out. Wants $500.00. Don't know much about two wheel tractors, just looking at it. Did not see it in person, only an ad for sale. Has a cultivator and potatoe hiller, not sure if they are original attachments. Noel

I was thinking [dangerous I know] the M-1's were built in '51-'53

 

The "3" is 3 horsepower

For $500 it better be in premo condition. I just bought a model L simplicty along with four others ( 3 restorable and 2 parts) for $70.00. If you are looking to get into the hobby there may be better deals out there.

It might be pretty rare on "The Island." If it is running, I would guess about one-third to half  the price asked. Information on them is readily available, both on GT Forum and Yahoo Groups.

 

I have the Montgomery Ward (Chor Trac Special) version of the M-1 that will be one of my winter projects.

Thanks for the information. It is not in mint condition. Noel
