Just the tractor itself, or is there an attachment hiding somewhere?

Looks really well kept.

Oooooh Pretty.wow that's the nicest original seat that I've seen in a while.

 

I see a new shortblock was put in her.I'm working on a Ariens S12 Hydro here that had a short block put in it,it's the same light grey color.

Nope, just the tractor.  I have a couple of decks & a very beat up (probably shot) single stage blower.

I was surprised at the condition of the seat also, just a slight tear bottom front.  I honestly didn't pay much attention to the tractor before bidding, but when the bidding stalled I jumped in. Drove on to the truck under its own power.  Were a lot of other tractors at the sale including some bigger Fords.  Just up over the mountain from you, near Indian Lake.

I agree, probably a short block but no idea how old.

I think this Ariens S12H JD 112 and Bolens 1054 with hydraulic lift might have come from there.He said he got them at an auction.

 

I'm just working on them for the guy.He's not much of a small engine mechanic.

Congrats!

I couldn't help but notice the SWEET FORD hubcaps on front too. Were these originally on all FORD LGT's?

Nice looking 145. 1976 model- bolt in engine. Late 76 models steering linkage was changed. I have a couple with the blocks not painted. My take is if someone had it overhauled correctly, the block would have been boiled out which would have removed the paint. Figured no one wanted to repaint it afterwards.
