This little scale JD has been sitting under a car port going out of town for some time. Last week while coming back into town with my little girl I noticed an elderly gentleman sitting outside as well so I pulled in and struck up a conversation. Story is he bought it about four years ago complete as seen. He did shows and such with it for a couple of years and just doesn't any more. It looks super clean and well built. He also has a trailer to haul it that is appropriately pained. He said I could have it all for the right price.

I asked him if it was all right to take pictures and explained that I would post them here. He was cool with that so here for your viewing pleasure it is.

Should any one be really interested in it contact me and I can cover more info.

That is a cool little tractor. Whoever built it was very skilled and knew what they wanted. It is amazing how many small details there are on it.

That is a wheel horse trans.

That's an excellent build and you did a great job on the pictures.

 

I'm guessing the rear end is from a wheelhorse based on the square axle tubes.

 

Did you notice if the radiator is for show or function?

That is a really neat tractor. I see a certain beautiful little gal is also quite impressed as well.

The radiator is show only but it appears the fan does turn. He quotes a price of $4000.00 for the tractor and matching low bed trailer to haul it. Have no idea how competitive that price is but in my opinion all the tractor needed is a bath to be parade ready.
