It seems like quite a few "restored" GTs have shown up for sale in my area. The prices are alot lower than the cost of a good restoration which makes them tempting to me. On the other hand: I can't afford any more, I don't have room for what I already have, and I prefer to do it myself. It seems like someone just getting in to the hobby could do very well by shopping around.
This one is tempting but I will pass it on to fellow GTTers. It is in the next town from me. http://newlondon.cra...5116118047.html
Simplicity Landlord 2110 tractor/plow/trailer - $800 (Hampton)
make / manufacturer: 1968 Simplicity
model name / number: Landlord/2110
This is a restored Simplicity Landlord 2110. Mowing deck is in perfect shape as is the tractor, Simplicity plow and Simplicity trailer.
If you are familiar with this setup you know this is a steal. Tractor starts right up, no smoking, no leaks and everything works perfectly.
Tires are like new. Deck has working hydraulic lift and that same mechanism lifts the plow. The blades were just professionally sharpened and I've only mowed the lawn a few times after that was done.
You won't find a better deal or cleaner tractor, trailer, plow or mowing deck. I have inherited another tractor so I'm going to sell the whole package as they belong together.
Price is firm/cash deal and we are right off route 6.
The tractor is going to put out on route 6 for sale on Sunday and it will go quick so....
