I found this today. Turns out the guy I got it from had it in his family since New. It was tucked away behind a bunch of crap in a barn for 30 years. His dad originally purchased this tractor at Swiderski equipment along with the deck. He was not shure about the cultivator though. As we were talking, I asked about the paint, and he said when him and his brother were kids his brother painted it, and he laughed about it, but never knew why he painted it. The one picture shows the original tag, and I scraped a little paint off that reveals the "M". Anyway, stuck a battery in it, some new gas, checked the oil level, and it fired right up.
As for the few missing parts, the guy said he is going to look for them, who knows if they will show up?? Lol
I believe this to be a 66. It has the early style chassis, but has the 4 speed transmission.
Unfortunately, I probably won't be keeping this one as I have too many projects going on now, I am out of space, and I need an enclosed trailer, so I'm most likely going to be listing it sometime soon. Thought you all would like to see a rescued Moline though!!!!
Gotta love the seat!!! Lol, yes here are some pictures, we ALL like those!

Too bad you'll get rid of it as it may be worth more than your whole herd!

If you take your time and willing to have patience, you can remove the paint over spray from the serial tag. Use 2000 "wet" grit sandpaper and plenty of water, and "rub gently". Might take you a whole afternoon to complete, but it can be done! I've removed paint from original decals like this, and is very worth the effort.

Congrats on the find, as it looks like it will make a nice tractor for somebody someday.

Great point, but I won't be restoring it, so I will leave that project up to the next person, besides, I don't want to take the risk of ruining it!!!

Thank you.
I actually found it by mistake. The guy lives about 2 city blocks away from me, and he had a tiller for sale. I stopped to look at the tiller cause my buddy was looking for one, and he had a Ford lt110 sitting off to the side. I said "hey that's a Jake", and he said yep, and " I have a Moline too". Well that's how it all fell together. Funny, I'm not finding tractors, NOW they are finding me!!! :)

This is 110 that I got a couple months ago. It is an older one as it has cast foot rest and my newer one has sheet metal foot rest. We now have 4 molines and a white.

Forgot to mention the cultuvator is more than likely a Brinly with slot hitch as that is what the MM, Ford, & Jacs had I would be interested in Cultivator if GL does not want it with tractor.

Ya it's an early 66. Footrests from 1965 were left over at the end od the year so they used them up in 1966 then went to a different style footrest when they ran out of the 1965 footrests.
