I am going to nominate Bolens800uk's 1962 Bolens 600.
Back in April last year Andrew found a Bolens 600 advertised on eBay which just happened to be fairly close to me.
He PMed me asking if I would be so kind as to help him get it shipped to the UK if he managed to win the auction.
I told him that I would be more than happy to help, and that I would have no problem keeping it at my place until arrangements could be made for the shipping.
Andrew did win the auction, and it turned out that the seller was only about a 1/2 hour drive from me. Now as you all know from my various road trips, that was 'just around the block' for me
So, on a very nice Saturday morning I set forth to bring Andrew's prize home.
Once at the sellers, we had a bit of a chat and I gave it a good test drive and payment was made. During the chat I asked if he knew the history of the tractor and he said that he didn't. He worked at a scrap yard and the tractor and attachments were brought in the be scrapped!
That would have been almost a crime as the tractor is in perfect working condition, and will start within 1-3 pulls. I guess the it was something that someone inherited, and that they had no clue as to what it was, but that it was old and that they didn't want it.
He has an agreement with t he owner that if anything with a 'much better than scrap value', and is salable that he will put it on eBay, and they will share in the profits. He saw the value in the 600 and a good tractor was saved for us to use and appreciate.
So, without further commentary, here is Andrew's 'Scrap Yard 600':
