I'm finally putting the finishing touches on my 1960 Bready ''662'' Powerette . It has been a long and arduous restoration, my second of the season but I enjoyed every minute of it  . I purchased this GT two years ago in Conn. after seeing it on the CL I was intrigued by its unusual looks and well, you guys know I just had to have it. Here are a few pictures of the tear down and rebuild , the tractor was powder coated, not the original color but I like it just so.IMG_1294.JPG IMG_1289.JPG IMG_1501.JPG IMG_1512.JPG IMG_1667.JPG IMG_1672.JPG IMG_1673.JPG IMG_1674.JPG IMG_1675.JPG IMG_1676.JPG IMG_1678.JPG

What a change.
BTW, I forgot that JD made the Bready units (roll eyes)
I love the new colors and it looks SO much happier.

Hank , another great looking tractor! Nice job as always. Those are some wide ags on the back, would they have come like that, or just matching what it had when you bought it? Did you powder coat this one too? Very shiny for powder coat.

Man, nice job on another one, Hank. These restorations are tedious and time consuming!
