Big ground implements for such little tractor frame.  That is one odd steering you don't see anywhere else. At least it is complete and you wouldn't have to look for years for attachments!  Too much for me, but bet he gets that money or close.

If I had the extra cash I would scoop it up. I would make a reasonable offer though.

I usually troll the f/g and free stuff when someone posts out of town cl stuff on here. Some joker has an ad for free snow. I wonder if that comes with free shipping too?

Yes, May 19th, 1960.  $553 for the tractor as outfitted, $290 for ALL implements, and $10 for freight.

I've had several of these. The steering cable is actually a surplus aircraft cable. Cool design but also have a lot of problems if they haven't been regularly greased. The tiller is certainly a very rare attachment. Overall, a bit too rich of an asking price in my opinion. But I wouldn't be suprised if someone pulls the trigger just for the tiller.
