Is there a serial number stamped anywhere on a 800 tractor - the part of my serial number sticker with the numbers on it has been lost but the generic Bolens logo half remains. Even if someone can take a look at the pictures and videos in this link and date my tractor I would appreciate - Checking the serial number on my S8D dates the engine to a Jan 1965 build.

The serial number will not determine the year but going by the engine serial number I would say your tractor is likely a 1965

Thanks Brian - Is the color correct for  65 or has it been repainted?

The white colors are correct but looks like the frame was painted black, these were supposed to be "Cordovan" a brown metallic color

The frame on mine is a very light navy blue bordering on the blue-gray range. Seems to have been a half decent repaint with the engine removed, no overspray on stickers etc. Definitely a old repaint, has weathered and faded nicely.
