This one is a bit rougher than the last one, but it was a great price and came with lots of extras. Actually seems pretty nice mechanically, if you look past the dash and rusty sheet metal...

 

Oh, and I now need to find two of these dashes.  Metal preferred.  ~Paul

No ID tag, so I will have to figure out the year by the motor. K582s 36328. No speed control, but has transmission cooler. Steering cylinder is nice and free too. :)

Nice package! It sure came well equipped. It would make for a great restoration.

Bolster was first thing I checked!! No breaks or repairs. Steering cylinder and links all good too.

I am thinking this one will become an adopted member of the family and not allowed out on its own even though it is old enough to legally smoke and drink??

This is a keeper-- and it will keep my other one company. Bookends, ya know?

The K582S 36328 would point to a 1984 model or newer, however the decals are are the 1979-1981 style as is the steering wheel. No cruise control, so it's not a 2389S model... Engine is most likely a replacement engine. As I look more closely, I notice the engine oil dipstick is pointing straight up. This is typical of a replacement engine. 

 

I'm gonna say it's a 1979 or 1980 2389-01.  :thumbs:

 

Nice grab Paul!

I agree with the replacement engine. I noted that the air cleaner assembly is not correct for the 2389-01, but would be expected on a replacement. Nice score even so!

Nice score with the attachments as well. I can only dream of catching a haul like that over here in the UK.

I like your Tractor Rescue and Adoption Centre Rosette!
