What did a 900 with 38" mower deck sell for new in 1965? With inflation what it is what would sell for today in new condition?

The prices didn't change much from 1965 to 1967 so this should give you an idea http://gardentractor...68-price-sheet/ . I'd look at the 850 prices. As a comparison, a new VW Beetle was $1620 in August 1968.
It would be hard to find an equivalent today. Maybe a JD but you are talking over $5000. Good Luck, Rick

Would have been close to $ 135 for the 38'' Deck and around $ 460.00 for the tractor in 1965
Not many people would spend that amount of money today, thats for sure. Its funny how the markets changed from spending a decent amount at once to buy something to last 20-30 years , to now where most want to spend next to nothing and are satisfied with a mower that lasts 2 years

Using round numbers, the 850 and 42" deck on that price sheet come up to about 1k
Google tells me that is $7137.14 now.
Something else to consider. That list is DEALER cost, not MSRP.
