Nice cub tractor with chrome, look close, some of its hard to see. Not sure about the plow ? I am not really a fan of chrome on a farm tractor, but to each his own. What do you guys like ? Noel

I don't like chrome much on anything since it needs care to make it look nice and I'm lazy.

 

That's a nice enough looking tractor, bit I would have gone with a contrasting colour for the shiny bits.

Not a fan, I think hood decals would have improved its look dramatically with a lot less effort .

I have seen worse than that.  I am not a fan of lots of chrome and accessories to "pimp" out a tractor.  I like a nice chrome or polished stainless exhaust but beyond that let 'em alone.

To each his own. I doubt you could buy those parts chromed? My guess is someone worked in a plating shop.

I figured not to many would like the chrome. I really don't even like a chrome exhaust pipe. I love chrome on most old cars thou. Any way something I saw in my travels. He has had it for a number of years, but I have never seen it at a show or parade. As we say, to each his own. Two bottom plow would be for decoration , I would think, but depends on soil type and depth. Noel

In my opinion the tractor is worth much much less with the chrome compared original colors and materials !
