It is from the later 60s and has the good looking grill. Condition? If it is not running, the price is high. I bought a running 8hp 2 years ago for $100. No attachments. Good Luck, Rick

Is that the original engine? 8 horse, recoil start?  I'm not so impressed.

I agree with it not running and no attachments it sounded a high. Bad thing is there are not a lot of older garden tractors in this area. I either have to drive 300 miles or pay more. The scrap guys has hauled a lot of them to the scrap yards and they were melted down.

Thanks! That's what got my attention. I never had a Wheel Horse as it's always been Copar's so I don't know a lot about them.
