Found a cub cadet original for sale pretty close to me. Went to check it out last night and bought it. Good condition, runs good needs a few carb adjustments.

Great looking Cub Cadet there.

When i bought my cub cadet 102 the seller had to help get it in my truck by shoving it up the ramps with his loader tractor to help get in my high rise topper. Trust me, nothing better than a high rise truck topper, especially when the opening clearance height is 48 inches. :D

Very nice find with the somewhat rare fenders , mower deck and a decent original pan seat ......

Looks like a very restorable original , especially since the steering console and dash don't have the usual previous owner extra holes added ....LOL  

 

That's what you usually find with a 50+ year old cub cadet .

 

I've owned probably 10 originals and most have had extra holes drilled in the dash for a replacement ignition switch or the steering sector hole in the side has been hacked for easier adjustment .

I lifted the cap the seller helped push and when I put the cap down there was maybe a centimeter between it and the steering wheel. Im going to clean it up with some degreaser tomorrow then get the oil bath filter back on and carb adjusted then use it as is for now. The mower deck needs a little work. I plan to restore it just don't know when yet maybe after I finish my horse tiller.

Nice find :thumbs:

Good that you got the fenders with it also. Later model, got a serial number off it, or do you already know what year it is?

Nice looking grill with IH emblem, plus box of stuff :beerchug:

There a fun little tractor.

I wish we had an original seat pan for ours.

 

I put a regular single center bolt tractor seat on it.  Does make it more comfortable to ride, but not original!

**Cub Cadet Original Part Out**

Maby you could get him to ship the seat pan

http://pages.ebay.co...id=221666565004
This might be a choice too

Great find! I'm like Jlaws, owned several in my time from trailer Queens to rollers. I see the typical crack in the fender pan which is no biggy to repair.

I'm restoring a 61 original and mine does not have the fenders. Are they missing? Or did that year not come with them or were they an option? I really like the look with them on but want to restore it correct.

Wikipedia says round fenders, headlights, and creeper gear were all optional on the original. Thats as much as I know, the fenders sell separately sometimes.
