I don't have one but wouldn't mind getting one. In all honesty though there aren't too many ford garden tractors I like but there are a few. Seems a little awkward considering I am a huge ford nut when it comes to vehicles LOL

A lot of the wrinkles have gotten better. You can see good enough. It could have used to be a little higher, but i was working with the mtd 3 sided cab that was not meant to be put on a 30 year old Ford. I had got such a good deal on the cab I had to make it work. ($35 new in the box)

It was nice the one time I used it to push snow this year.

If you ever decide to restore it, I make decals for the hood/grill/fender. I can't make the direction/caution decals with tiny text.

That's a good looking tractor for all original! Love the cab!

After I get my MTD done I am going to redo the Ford. The Ford means a lot to me since it was grandpa's I want it to last. I will be taking you up on the decals.

After I redo it, it will be semi retired.

It makes it even better when they have sentimental value to them.

Picked this up a few winters ago[sold it last summer] my grandson needed a bigger tractor to drive so I rebuilt this one.I don't have to many pictures of it,just after it was fixed.It was in many pieces when I got it the front spindle was broken and welded back in but wrong angle:confuse: the hood had the hindges ripped right through it,no seat, front tires were rotten,fenders where off,gas tank,was off,oil leaked out of the crank seal.The guy I bougth it from hooked a chain to it dragged it out of the snow bank and lifted it into the back of my truck with his skid steer.Just about everything needed to be rebuilt except the hydro and diff.Even the mower deck needed repair.Had to cut part of the discharge chute off it had been driven over by ??? it was bent and twisted up pretty badly.In the picture you can see the shorter discharge chute.I also had to make a adapter plate for the foot pedal control so the little guy could reach the pedal.We cut lots of grass with it,even had a winter cab[darn didn't take pictures] he pushed lots of snow with it. Now its bigger stuff that he's driving. Larry:D
