 Yep, the only thing missing is the green and yellow paint. That was the experimental unit for Deere's first garden equipment. it's got to be worth at least double the asking price.  NOT!!!!

That's factory all right.  Advertising always dwelt on the fact that the owner never would need wheel weights.

Well most guys need a trailer to mount the engines too and THEN, still need a way to tow it around from lots to show grounds when showing it. SO.......This does both!  I didn't look to see price, BUT, most running hit/miss are way over priced in my opinion! Buy it for the engine, throw tractor away?

It's priced at $1,500, GL.

I see lots of road trips to get garden tractors in my future. The pricing around here is just plain idiotic.

There is a four seat cub with a hit or miss engine that runs around at the bigger shows that I go to in eastern CT. It is very well done and fun to watch and hear. The difference between a mechanic and a cobbler. Good Luck, Rick

The tractor is a Gilson S series of some sort.  I wonder about their drive setup as the trans input pulley is parallel to the frame, but they have the crank perpendicular to the pulley.  I would bet it does not drive itself.

I agree.  It's tough to see, but I don't see any kind of driveshaft or belts connected to the flywheel.

 

Also...That is one loooooong machine!  You'll need a corn field to turn that thing around.
