got me another Suburban bought tonite and a bunch of toys to go with it. Be picking it up later on next week. Looks like i'll have to get another building . This will be my 12th Suburban 59-65, but I haven't bought one for a couples yrs, so I was do. I think the pictures will be small, but i'll get better one later on.

Pics are tiny, but looks like snowblower, plow, three point, sickle, mower deck, and some parts
Nice package. Looking forward to seeing them.

ok I finally was able to get the tractor home today after going though a lot hassle with the sellers. Seems they didn't accurately own the tractor, it belonged to another older guy, who's father brought it brand new. Supposedly this gentleman was in the hospital, and the seller didn't have the keys to get into the building. What really happened was the sellers didn't have the money to pay him for it, so he wouldn't let it go. After I showed up and let them have a peek of the money, they decided I could come in and look it over and then load it up if I liked it. 

 

Well it was worth the wait, for sitting in the building was a 1962, model 623, a 660 snow blower, a front dozer blade, a deck, a 3pt setup, a 6" plow, a bunch of parts and pieces, control rods, and the holy grail...........a complete 639 sickle mower. I'd been hoping it was a 639 mower as its a hard one find. At the end of loading the older guy came out with a poor shape, but readable manual for the mower also, win win win.............!

 

We got it all loaded and then drove home in the snow, you know it just has to rain or snow when you get a great find. I just off loaded it for now, so we didn't have to play in the wet stuff and took a few better pictures. I might have to move this one up to the top of the redoing list, well at least the tractor and the sickle part.

all the attachments but the plow have the Sears/Simpson tag(the black one). I got the hood to the tractor, it just wasn't bolted on and I put it in another place until later.

yes I just have to figure out how be here and there on the same weekend. That weekend has turned into a busy one for places to go. I'm also invited to a big Rondy in northern IN(20,000 people attend), I have the local Rondy where I make rope for the kids, and theres the plowing day. Acutely there's more stuff going on most weekends than I can go to. I might just have to start doing my own show here, then I wouldn't have to get up so early and move a bunch of heavy stuff, lol
