As some of you know, I am trying to sell away some of the restoration projects that I know will never get accomplished by me.  The tractors will only go to heck in a handbasket sitting in an open face shed.

This Cub Cadet 149 was supposed to be a complete refurbish project.  I like the style on that series, and I saw one restored all the way with automotive paint at a show and decided I wanted to do one myself.  I still sort of wish I could do this one, but I have to pick my projects. 


I purchased this tractor also from a family member of the original owner.  He had wanted to restore it but also never had the time. 


It does run well.  It has a new carburetor, new points, condenser, and coil, new muffler, and a freshly cleaned gas tank.  It has the starter generator on it.  It has the incorrect air cleaner, but that is not an issue unless you plan to restore it. 


The mower deck is strong.  One bearing might be a little noisy, but I can't tell which one for certain. 


I am asking $600 for it.  I can help with delivery for a little something depending on how far we need to go.
