Finally got a chance to post in the middle of all the moving and new job confusion. I replied to an ad on CL and was able to pick it up the next day. Not too far away either. I had a blast chatting with the gentleman I bought it from about our tractors. My friend who came along for the ride was probably a little overwhelmed with all the "business" talk of our hobby.
In accordance with marital rules and regulations, I justified the purchase with the sale of my White GT1000 to a friend from the old stomping grounds. Now he has the only two that show up on a Google image search and I'm happy it will have a good home. I hope that the previous owner of the T&C feels the same. I will treat it well my friend, I will treat it well. It did come with the original front wheels/tires as well.
BTW, it does not have a serial ID tag. If anyone out there has a parts machine or an ID tag that would be proper for this tractor I would be interested. Sure would like to add it to the T&C registry.
