Never seen that type of machine in Ford blue! That is fascinating!
Is that what the "9GN" means?
The GN is. Jacobsen is JC @ New Holland.
I just looked it up and they do have a parts listing for it (09GN6074). Decals and all!

I'm not very well versed in my new hobby of Garden Tractors, But with another interest of mine a true prototype is the stuff that dreams are made of. A true piece of collecting gold. The price thing on something like this will come down to research and what ever anyone wants to pay for it. Should you restore or leave it in its original survivor condition is the next question. Considering the likelihood of its prototype history I wouldn't touch it myself. It can only be original once.
Since you are new here I am guessing that you don't collect or play with garden tractors. If that's the case I would make the plea that you sell this at an appropriate price to someone that will keep it appropriately stored and in good maintenance so that its history can be appreciated. Just my $.02.

I own SAMPLE #4 of the Pre Production LGT 17 H Glison built Ford garden tractor. Here is all the info I could find on the Pre-Production tractors that Ford used as show pieces in the early 80's when Ford switched from Jacobsen to Gilson Products.
And WELCOME to GTtalk, glad to have you here !!

thanx guys for all the info and ideas, it is a pretty cool fined. I do have 3 riders right now but nothing like this.
not sure if I should keep it or not, but it should go to someone that would do the right thing with it.
