I am new to the site. I am usually on another site. I am working on 2 Snapper 1855s but my true love is the old antiques. I am currently restoring a 1965 Ford T-800. From my understanding and research this is the first garden tractors produced for ford. Also only 351 of the T-800 were made. Since I have bought it I bought a correct hydraulic lift for it and also the headlight kit. I was looking for a rear lift. It is a complete restoration nut and bolt. It is currently completely disassembled and frame is primed

More pics. The grill and headlight bezel are done with new stainless hardware. There is a pic of frame in primer. Also nos mini block k181. Also a pic of the hydraulic lift. The last is a Jacobsen deck I had shipped from me from nevada. It's is solid and pretty close to mint. A color change and decals are all that's needed

Sweet looking tractor. Love the styling. :thumbs:
I never noticed before seeing this be in blue, but there are some subtle design parallels with the older DB square hood look.

It looks like she's getting lots of love and has finally found a home where she'll be cared for.

I am getting better and better at my restorations. Here is my B10 I finished up a while ago. Repowered with a 15hp briggs instead of the 10hp

Beautifull B-10. It just needs the dust caps that someone posted for sale on here today. Good Luck, Rick

Back working on her, I am getting some smaller pieces sanded. My goal is to have a roller soon. Makes life easier and it's fun to see it come together
