Hey Folks, I have developing health issues, and decided to "Thin The Herd" to something more manageable, like 2...1 for snow & 1 to mow!!
A while back I picked up a Craftsman "Indy 500" 18hp model. This is a "Consumer Model" as I call it; meaning it has the "Special Edition" plaque & decals, but NOT a "Speedway Used" model.
I am attaching a few pic's to judge condition, but what I need to know is "WHAT ARE THESE WORTH???" I have a buyer lined up who is an old friend, but I can find very little about these...in fact I only suspect it is from the 1992 Model year from other posts on GT.
The model number is 917-255918, serial 1029S01***, it is the 18hp Briggs model with manual trans & hi-lo. If anyone has any info on these tractors, or can give me a "Ball Park" range on prices, please let me know.
I will ad, The pics are the ones the original seller sent me. It fires right up, no smoke, knocks, noises, and has new Kevlar belts & battery and someone added iron wheel weights. Otherwise it is 100% original. (The spill on the hood washed right off) The person had parked it inside for 5-6 years due to a bad "Bosch Interlock Relay".
I'm just at a loss finding much info, even dating by serial number...seems maybe Sears used a "mixed lot" when producing these?
