Hey everyone - wanted to share some pictures of the Colt I was fortunate enough to pick up. As it stands now (I guess) its the oldest known to exist....with SN 1031 where 1099 was the oldest.

 

Really, none of that matters to me, I'm going to enjoy restoring it and having it in my collection.

 

Shes a little rough, missing a few parts already on order...but overall in nice shape.

Nice!  Merry Christmas to you!  Do you have the hood?  That thing is in great shape to start with.  Should be an easy restore.  I'm sure there must be a register somewhere that documents these tractors and their serial numbers.  If I were you I would get my name on it real quick given the fact that it certainly looks like you have the oldest one so far.
