I think he based the age on the 37 Ride-a-matic that was listed a while back. :rolling:

Looks like he's basing it off what he sees on the tag.

 

Depending on the seller, it's sometimes fruitless to correct them. I can remember a couple of past instances where I've contacted a seller before that had their specs or facts wrong for their listed machine and all they wanted to do was argue and not take into consideration that they may actually be mixed up.

Date is definitely wrong lol

Appears to have the correct engine, and price seems right in there too.

Well, technically, it is a 1939 Bolens due to the serial number.

 

In fact it is the only 1939 Bolens tractor manufactured in 1962.

 

While the ad may be confusing, the seller does not say it was made in 1939.

A  1939 or a 1962     The  price is still a good deal . If the engine turns over .

For $250,,you can't beat that with a big stick and there is likely some wiggle room if you show up with cash.  Accuracy of vintage is not a deal breaker,

Well at least it isn't "very rare", "highly sought after", or "it ran great when parked!" :poke:  The price is fair, but I think if you wait it out you could stumble across a 600 in original shape in that price range like I did. :thumbs:
