I don't have any decorated tractors but I will throw out an entry to keep things rolling. I picked up this 1969 Sears SS12 from a friend of mine. I really didn't have to do anything to it,it was a great running tractor when I got it and in nice overall original condition. These tractors steer so nice it is almost like having power steering,the transmissions always seem to be in good condition and shift nice and tight in them and the Tecky engines get a bad rap IMHO. This one like most of the Teckys that I have owned start and run great. The Suburban,Compact,Custom and ST tractor are all under rated,once again,IMHO.
These pictures were taken when I took the SS12 to plow and disc my FIL's big garden. He chuckled when I decided to bring it over and get his garden ready ( he wasn't familiar with garden tractors or what they are capable of) but when I was done and he had a ready to plant garden he was convinced and happy. This tractor plowed and disced that garden on the factory Sears turf tires with no weight added,never missed a beat and pulled hard doing it. I was very impressed with how strong it pulled and was amazed at the traction the tractor had.
