Do you have any attachments with it or is it just a tractor?

 

If you were closer, I would own that machine.  I would like to restore an RJ, although I want one with a Clinton engine...

I'm not sure what it worth, but it's missing all the belt guards and muffle guard. Those hoods a very hard to find and someone poked a hole thru yours. i hope you can get it sold if that's what you are wanting to do. Good Luck. :thumbs:

 As stated above the missing belt guard will be a real problem to find . The missing exhaust shield not easy to find but doable as they pop up from time to time on Ebay either original or repop the hood although unfortunate  is easily repairable in the plus column the engine runs and it is a fairly rare GT it stinks that those parts are missing it really deflates the price in my opinion . I should add however with all there parts I have seen them go for  $1000.00 in that condition.

I have 5 rjs in my collection I bought them all last year, the best one was restored no attachments, new rear tires $775, a real good complete one with deck $350, the others all missing something little anywhere for $200-$300, one I got for $100 and took off the bits I needed for my other 3 then sold it to someone else who needed other parts, wheel horses are scarce here so the price is higher than most other gts, john deeres have to be sold at giveaway prices around here, cant get 200 for a jd rf, or 150 for a good 214, I just keep them now for trading or motor parts, so put a decent price on it, say $500, no bites in 2weeks lower it, good deals don't last long on craigs list

Joe Papke is very experienced with the all the early Wheel Horses, and has many dozens of RJ's that he has restored over the years, and dozens more for parters.  I believe he contracted with someone to remanufacture a bunch of those belt guards and exhaust shields, and Joe is a very fussy detailed guy, so those guards were made darn good.   Check with him on those guards, and parts you may need, he's in White Pigeon, MI :

I'll second that on Joes guards and shields. I got my 400 belt guard from him and it's outstanding.
