Picked this up from a guy today. Don't know much about them nor can I seem to find much about them. Are they worth anything? Are they a sought after item? Guy I bought it from still had all the original paperwork with it. It's a Mustang 8 that had an upgraded factory package that included rear dual tire set up and electric start. Also has a seat riser for the taller fellow that might have to use one .

Anything can be collectible, some things more than others, just like in your case, im sure there is regions that collect it more, and some that never heard of it.

 

Ive always liked the mustangs myself

Welcome to GTT. There may be some pics and a manual for it in our sections. Play with what you like don't worry about what others think. Good Luck, Rick

Since you drug it home, yes it's collectible.

   Looks to be in original condition. Would serve as a real counterpoint to a display of quality garden tractors. Have you found any information such as original price, year, weight, manufacturer.  History can be very interesting. I hope someone will recognize the construction style. Don

It looks alot like an MTD that I have. My FIL bought it around 1960. It is waiting to get resurrected. Alot of MTDs were painted and badged for the stores selling them. Good Luck, Rick

All I know is that the company that built it was around from the early 60's to the mid 80's. These cars tractors were magazine order only. Seems that most were shipped over seas and aren't many in the U.S. original sale price was around $190 plus shipping. That's about all I have found in it. No one seems to know much of anything on it or ever even seen one before. From what I gather most of them were junked or turned into racing mowers
