A low serial number 1963 953 and a C81 8 speed. I have know of the C81 a couple of years. It is a good running little tractor. I am going to work on the paint and put a deck under it,at least that is the plan. The 953 runs and mows but needs a little mow TLC. It will be good to take to a show or two next year I hope.

Thanks guys. The 953 is a early very low serial number tractor so plans are to get it back into decent shape. I spent a little time with rubbing compound on the C81 and the paint looks like it will come out decent so I think I will paint the wheels and change the seat and it should look pretty decent for a worker. I did pick up a nice condition 42 inch rear discharge deck today very cheap (which I was thrilled with) that will most likely go on this tractor.
