Found this in a  collection of paper work I have from old tractors I have bought for parts/ repair.  Thought u guys might like to see it.  Arnolds is where I got my first old gt about 25 years ago.

Wow, that is a very cool piece of history to go with a tractor.

What's funny is the 80 carts in nice shape bring more now than what you paid then new hahahaha. Also look what you could buy a nice gt for. You can't even buy depot crap for that

That's a nice keepsake. 2600 was a lot of money in 1975! Then again those tractors last a long time if properly maintained.

I graduated from UCONN 2 days after that. At the time the local Chevy dealer was advertizing brand new 75 Chevy C10 trucks for $2700. I only had $1500 saved up so, I rebuilt the engine in my 65 Nova Wagon(about $125) and kept it for 3 more years. Those GTs were a big expense and a new one still is. Good Luck, Rick

It's really neat to have that sales receipt. All my garden tractors (three total over the last 35 years) have been bought at auctions or on Craigslist.

A free gas can for a $2700 sale....WOW what a deal.

 

My sister-in-law and her husband bought a $25,000 motorcycle and got a "free" tee shirt!
