Very cool! Great find for sure. I would LOVE to have another Amigo...my head is on a swivel everywhere I go, watching for just what you have found.

Thanks for joining us and taking the time to share!

Welcome aboard, crossarm. I like the toolbox mounted on the fender... I'm not familiar with the tractor, is the box an original part or an add-on?

Welcome to forum! You better BUY that if it is for sale. Very Rare and many want them. Parts hard to find, Don't part it tho, keep it whole. Maybe we will see it and you at shows then this summer??

Thanks everyone. Been collecting a while now. Also have a 1959 porter cable, 4 a/c's, a jd 140, and a wheel horse. Have had several jd round fenders also. I bought the amigo and it is in my shop now. Been driving it around the yard the last 2 days. It's a hoot to drive. Does'nt even smoke, motor runs great. Only issue is shifter under seat is loose and does'nt do just right. I'm thinking shifting fork is coming loose. Any tips? Should I pull trans top off?

They are a HOOT to drive!  Not much out there quite like them, and they work great.  Nice, over-built machines.  

 

I'd certainly pop the trans cover off...these are easy to do with no ill-effect.  Give it a good inspection and save the heartache of a failure on a machine you probably can't find the correct parts for.  I know there was a lot of NOS parts sold at auction a few years ago, but I have no clue where they all went.

You have a much better looking barn find than mine!   

I've been driving mine around  and haven't noticed that happening.  There is a differential that should prevent that from happening.

Popping the lid off is no big deal,  Easy enough to re-install.

I've just recently replaced the bearings, seals and bushings in mine.

The shifter fork on mine is homemade but is functional.     Good luck with yours.   rick

I hope this isn't welded together inside. Not sure what rear is in these, but never seen one do that unless welded.
