Arrrgh.  I just had to share this Craiglist ad with ya'll - are you kidding me?  And don't you just LOVE the blue paint?

 

Plus the guy advertised it as a "barn fine" - Bwaaaa haaaaa haaaa!  And a Ford PINTO engine?  As I recall, the Ford Pinto was so underpowered, it's engine would barely push the car it was designed for...

"It's a factory installed 1971 Large Frame" with original 1967 1250 style food pedals....

Don't you just love the cutout in the frame for the oil filter, with the added weight and power (if that is added power).

I think this guy is related to a guy (or maybe the same guy) that advertised a couple of years back a Bolens that was made by Ford Motor Company. Notice the "COBRA" steering cap??? LMAO.

Why do idiots exist?   :deadhorse:

I know someone who would think that it is a factory prototype of a tractor Bolens decided they would not make after all. Of course it would be blue: it has a Ford engine in it. That makes perfect sense, right?

What's really cracking me up is his statement  "what make this so rare is a factory installed 4 cylinder engine with 89 hp,most had 16 hp,has the same engine as a 1971 ford pinto had."

1971 Pintos came with 2 types of motors. a 1600cc @ 75HP and a 2000cc @ 100HP.  I wonder what Bolens did to either gain 14HP on a 1600cc OR lose 11HP on a 2000cc.  Hmmmmmmm.   LOL.

And it's ONLY $2,899!  

 

I wonder if he'd consider $28.99 (if he pays freight)?  Or, with all that HP, I guess you could drive it home on the interstate...

 

 

:D

I guess he was misinformed on the factory detail.
