And you thought all 140's were H1's or H3's.    :smilewink:

Well like the title says I got an H-0 

Just after yesterdays auction and while I was helping my friend move his new finds home,  I got a picture text from my brother.  no explanation,  Just a crappy cell phone picture of a John Deere LGT pedal. 

I called him and asked what the deal was.  He told me the price, I said I'd take it. 

When I got home last night he'd sent  much better pics and I could see what I got.  Didn't steal it but don't think I got hurt either.  I collected toy tractors in earnest from 1993 to 1998 when I switched to garden tractors.  Turns out his towns city-wide garage sales were yesterday and this was at one such sale.  Not really my brand but since its a model of a garden tractor........

I think they were made in the 70's.They usually sell for a lot of money.I don't know what you paid but it was probably cheaper at a garage sale.

I gave $125.  Can't see how I could get hurt for that.  He said one front tire is worn slick while the other three are real good.  Something is discombobulated in the steering so it doesn't turn and it looks like the brakes failed at one point and the front of the hood was used to stop forward motion.  I guess its not cracked as there is a factory seam where the two halves meet but not sure it can be straightened without breaking. 

Whadda-U-think guys?  restore or leave as-is?

I'd say you made out like a bandit, but I know little to nothing about pedal tractors.

Nice score on that. Not into pedal tractors, but I bet someone would have paid more for it.

You did very well for $125 around here that would be a $250-300 tractor or more. I haven't seen many of the older John Deere L&G pedal tractors around here to gauge the value. If you do plan to restore it there are several places on the internet to buy parts.

I missed this, it looks stolen to me.  Maybe you'd best let me have it, so you don't get caught with it!   :D   :D   :D
