Some of you will know me from other sites and have seen these before. I thought I would start out putting up pictures of my collection and if anyone wanted more information on a particular piece I could do a more detailed thread on it.

Some of these are already finished others are in progress and others are waiting their turn.

I have a '63 L8 pretty much done, a '72 816 rider that is currently being rebuilt, a '73 C8 runs great and next in line for repaint, and an '83 5200. Plus the attachments you see. None of these are trailer queens, they earn their keep. I just don't care for rust. Pretty much anything with fresh paint is done.

I don't think I've ever seen a 5200 live.  They must not have sold as well as other models in my area.

 

Great looking Gravelys!

Thanks Ben. I hadn't heard of them either until I saw this one. I was looking for something else and this was sitting there buried in the snow. The wife was interested in it and I told the guy if it starts and runs I'm interested. Started second pull after sitting for a year. It's the most reliable one I have at the moment.

I have a '63 L8 pretty much done,

 

'Pretty much' because the GT sticker on the front is missing the 'Talk.com' part?

 

"George!! The man needs a sticker!!!!!!!!"

Good to see them again, Don. Are you bringing any to the Mow-in?

 

Don't suppose you'd want to have a matched pair of the rollers would you?

Probably not Ellis, that's a pretty good distance for my beat up little trailer. 

Matched pair of rollers?

Just messing with ya, well kinda. I have what looks like the exact same roller as yours. I don't use it. Figured you might want to give me big bucks for it, and make a pair of super manly Gravely bookends...........or cuff links.........
