Another seller that don't know what he has but claims to have sold several of them.  Says it is a 1960 model.  Asked him to send me the model number but hasn't responded yet and doubt that he will.

I think I wore my welcome out with him though.  He didn't like my $100 offer.   Fun while it lasted.

Got to love these kinds of guys

 

He should expect low to no offers without pictures. Its likely a basket case the way it sounds

 

I asked about pictures and a model number I have my doubts!

This is what I see.

 

1950's Bolens Ride-o-Matic lawn tractor - $650

condition: fair
make / manufacturer: Bolens
model name / number: rideomatic

I have a 1950's vintage Bolens RideoMatic garden tractor. Engine free,paint fair ,tires need some fixing, I also have the original mower deck to go with it. I have seen same go for 900.00 on eBay. Great restoration candidate.Call or text do not use Craig's list email relay! Make a realistic offer, I might listen!
