I am going out tonight to pick it up. The guy is holding it for me till I get out there. It is a 74, he said it has been garage kept all it's life. The shortblock was replaced a couple years ago with a new oem. Has a tiller that he said is in excellent condition and was barely used. It also has the 3pt and he has all of the original manuals for everything.

Dash was broke, looked like cookie monster took a bite out of the top of it.
Hood was bent up a decent amount, probably could have been straightened but would have taken quite a bit of time to do
There were a few extra holes drilled in the hood also along with a handle mounted on the hood by the steering wheel to open it
grill was bent up but workable
screen was bent up but workable
electric pto wasn't working
there was about a 1 ft square amount of metal missing from the mower deck
there was no 3pt which he said it had
the spindles were shot
steering column moved about 2" in each direction
He would only come down to 900 because the electric pto wouldn't work. If he would have come down to 700 I would have taken it but between paying 900 and all the work that would have went in to it just to make it mechanically sound wasn't worth it to me. Maybe I am a jacka$$ for passing on it but such is life I guess.

He may very well get what he is asking for it and probably will but not from me.
I highly doubt he'll get even close to that price. Sure do hate to hear the hoops you've been led through. He's likely computer savvy, but saying he wasn't got him off the hook for sending good pics. He's nothing but trickery.

Finding an honest guy, is getting harder and harder. Sorry this deal didn't work for you George but, to me, it sounds like walking away from the deal was a smart thing for you to do.
I take most of the blame though for believing the guy without pictures and him being so far away. If I would have been a little more patient and waited for him to send pics I would have know to start negotiating before I headed out and if he wouldn't budge then I wouldn't have gone, but then I also know my luck and if I would have put it off for pictures the thing would have been awesome and already sold. I guess that is the game to play.
