I went to look at a bolens 1000 today, and I'm not sure of the fenders. they are fiberglass and not sure if they are original or not? He also had a HT20 with cab,tiller,power angle blade and blower. He would take $700.00 for both,or $100.00 for the 1000. the HT20 engine is out because he said it needs a connecting rod and not sure of the cost would be to fix. I spoke with the missus about the purchase of these tractors and she is not happy over my Bolens obsession. I just can't stand to see them sitting there all by themselves with no loven. I will go tomorrow to take some pic's and post them.
Fiberglass fenders is right for the 1000.
Thats a nice buy even if the engine is out I offer a little less because you cant see how the hydro workes, maybe around $600 for both would be a great buy.
You can still get parts for the engine.

As wilberj said above the fiberglass fenders are original.

The HT20 doesn't look to be in that bad of condition either.But with it tore down and in boxes you're almost certainly going to be missing a few odds and ends.
I bought a basketcase Kohler K301 that was supposedly complete but in boxes and once I got it home it was missing the governor gear and flyweights and 1 valve tappet.
Still that would be a Great tractor for say,Diesel conversion.The implements and cab are worth more than his asking price.
I want a 900 or 1000 pretty bad.
Every one I find is Really rough.Hoods mangled or crushed or just rusted up so bad that it wasn't worth the headaches.
