Just picked up my first tractor from a disabled vet in western mass. Its a B- 115, he says he thinks its an '82 but i haven't had time to look at it yet. It was $80 with chains, hopefully no more problems arise but all it needed was a battery. Wish me luck trying to start it this weekend. Just drained the oil today and buying some gas tomorrow. May need a spark plug idk. 

 

Tell me what you think!

I think im gonna keep it, its a very rare color and looks nice. Once i start beating on it more i might try to find a similar color to replace it with. What do you think?

    30 min east of Worcester puts you in springfield greenfield area ??  you should do what you want with the color you are the one who has to use it.  plus you could polish it real nice and market it as a super rare one of a kind color choice wheel horse !!!!!!!!!!!!!!  super rare and real valuable :D
