After waiting two months and Fastenal losing the shipment I now own 2 of the 3 know bolens convertibles.  I guess them losing it was not a bad thing they were nice to not charge me shipping because of it.  My hats off to the local store by me that did a lot of leg work to find and get this to me!    I have to say this is one is in the best of shape out of the 3 I know of.    I need to get the other one out so I can take photos of them together.

See that one has rear hitch provisions. Do you know what other implements were available. It just looks like it needs a mid mount grader blade. Don

Great finds, I hope to find one someday !

They are going to look good when restored in that metallic green!

Those are a gem that is for sure. I would love to see either one restore to new condition.

That's a pretty sweet find. You're really shaping up quite the Bolens collection. It's a neat thing to bring together a collection machines like that all in one place, isn't it. Even though many are from different time periods, they all share something significant in common and came from the same origin. Kind of cool to think about.

 

Anyway, when are the tickets going to be on sale so I can come take a tour? :)
