I am going to nominate my DB Model 36 'Dusty' .(approx. 1962)
Not particularly ugly because of rust , but because this thing has got to be one the ugliest designs for a lawn tractor . And then throw the Paint scheme on it .
I was searching thru the internet looking for David Bradley related stuff and came across this thing.
I though it was odd looking but had something about it that I liked (still not sure what) .
I posted it in the E-Bay C/L finds section and didn't get much excitement about it , I researched it and couldn't find much about it.
I tried to forget about it , but kept checking on it , six weeks later it was still there and reduced in price .
I finally talked to the guy about it on the phone , the story is that he found it pushed to the side of the road . It was in upstate NY . He tried to get it going but couldn't get it to fire . I ended up buying it and had it shipped to my house via U-Ship
After the first cleanup it looked better .
I spent most of this spring working it over to get the mower deck working and solving an engine problem on it .
She earns her space in the garage , my brother calls it a 'Hoveroni' (like a Hovercraft and a Zamboni mated) , I feel great and smile when I drive it around .
There is an ass for every seat.
I consider it a tractor because it did have the option for a snow plow and duelly wheels ?? Plus it can haul things behind it with 'Power to Spare!!
Honestly when I get together with family and we look at it we sure have a lot of fun laughing at it , that makes it worth a million bucks in my book .
A short video of it in action ! \/
