I'm looking for a circa '76...Roper GT with a FEL, painted Cat yellow and white, Brinley sleave hitch on it, Kohler engine. Last seen it was sold to someone in Dunnellon/Williston area of Florida.
I spent considerable time in restoring it and wondered if a member had come across or owns it. Looked sharp. Others stated it resembled a mini-Tonka toy.
Hope valuable site space hasn't been lost by this post.
Year on this post was changed after internet research showed the front grill to not be of the era originally posted. It had a fiberglass grill and the years originally posted weren't configured the same.
I had a copy of the original OEM shop manual, several more pages than a owners manual would have had.
One interesting point: Given its age, the bull gear in the transmission broke in half. Not being familiar with this or any other GT oriented sites, I contacted whoever-cannot recall if it was Sears-long story short, a freshly machined gear was made and sent to me-free of charge, with the notation, "that should not have happened, given the overall strength of that particular model of transmission". I doubt a company today would give such service.
