Ok George I will start.

I am going to nominate my 1969 John Deere 110 Custom Color (patio). Custom Color tractors where built from the years 1969 to 1971. The frame and body was painted Dogwood White and the customer had their choice of colors for the hood and seat in Patio Red, Spruce Blue, Sunset Orange, or April Yellow. The 110 came with a 8hp Kohler engine, 4speed gear drive transmission. Several attachment could be bought for the Custom Color tractors in Dogwood White also. The 1969 model year is the only year that did not specify that it was a Custom Color in the serial number and was the only year to have the engine painted white.

I picked this up several years ago sitting behind a garage. When I brought it home it didn't run, but just needed a tune up to get it going. While I would be working on it my son would be sitting on the seat pretending to drive it. After I got it running we made several trips around the neighborhood. Now the tractor just gets used for shows and parades, but I have used to in the past to pull the lawn sweep, and lawn cart. Have also taken it to a plow day (did not plow though) and last year took it to the John Deere Expo in Springfield Ohio.

Except for the rims it still has the original paint on it. In the picture you can see that I have a 43c grader blade attached. Yes I do have the blue seat that matches the hood but for parades I put the red seat on that I find at the Massey dealer on a MF7.

..... My entry for "Show Your colors". .....
We display the flag on the crawler at every tractor show that we attend.
The flag is mounted on the loader so it can be raised up and fly high and proud.
These photos were taken at a tractor show several years ago.

The "flag holder" is a 1945 John Deere Lindeman BO crawler that I rebuilt back in 1978.
These crawlers have a John Deere B powerplant ( engine, transmission, radiator, gas tank & hood )
The Lindeman Company of Yakima Washington, made all the parts to to make it into a crawler.
They were marketed mostly for the hilly orchard county on the west coast.
Production of these crawlers was from 1938 thru 1947 and 1,675 crawlers were built during that 9-year period.

The bucket loader is off an old Massey Harris Ferguson tractor and was adapted by me to fit on to the crawler.
I used this crawler on a regular basis around the property for 23 years but it is now retired and is mostly just displayed at shows.

I would like to nominate my 1977 Ford LGT 165. Since I live in the USA, it is always patriotic with it's paint scheme. (Unbeknownst to me, the Ford and windmill got together to show off their colors). I have had this tractor for a little over six months. When purchased, the Ford came with a set of chains, a 48" trip blade, 42" mower deck, 10" plow, and a 36" tiller.

So far, I have only used it to till my little garden. I have mostly been getting the motor back in shape and getting some paint on to slow the rust. I am going to continue to get the mechanics in shape this summer and build a few items to add to the tow hitch and tooth bar(harrow teeth). Hopefully, we won't get a large snow like we had last winter. But, if we do, I feel confident the Ford will get the job done.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]15536[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]15537[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]15538[/ATTACH]

I will look for some new rollers for the mower deck, and if these can be purchased cheaply, I will rework the PO's welds and get the mower working again. The spindles seem to be good.

The windmill does have a blue center, just hard to make out in the pics. George, here's the closest I could come to a T-shirt seat cover. Need to buy one of yours.(These comments may be omitted if need be)

O.K. I guess I'll give it a shot. This is my 63 Bolens 800. I got this tractor 8 years ago when I was looking for an engine for the old National reel mower that I had. When I actually got it home and started to do some homework on this homly little beast, I decided that I would not be transplanting the the Wisconsin S7D engine. It stayed where it belonged. I had the engine rebuilt about 6 years ago but rarly used it. The it all came to an end when the coil burned out 3 years ago and have been trying to get it running ever since. I nearly gave up on her ,that is until I came upon this site and my excitement renewed. With the knowledge from some members I was told to switch to an automotive coil, and of course that worked.Thanks for that. I then could not just stop there. It was my plan ever since I got it to restore it, and now would be the right time. I started to dismantal it about 2 months ago, and piece by piece painted it and put it all together. The colors are as close to original as I could find. Finally it is finished and works quite well, with only a few things left to tinker on. I do still need decals and repair to steering wheel. That will be done in the summer sometime. I have a few different style decks that I can use on it, a snowthrower, rear mount pto driven sprayer, homemade front blade, plow, scufflers, and a hiller. I just have not yet decided "IF" i will use them on the 800 or keep it as a show peice. So up north of the border here our colors are red and white.I thought I would go with a before and after pic to show our colors.
Before ( RED)[ATTACH=CONFIG]15805[/ATTACH] and after (WHITE)[ATTACH=CONFIG]15806[/ATTACH]. In case the colors have to be in the same pic I swapped out the seat (RED and WHITE)[ATTACH=CONFIG]15807[/ATTACH]. Enjoy. I know I will.

Okay, I will throw in my little Rugg-ed Rider. As far as I am able to tell, it is approximately a 1957-58 model. As most of you already know, the little guy is being stripped to parade rest for an attempt to get running and eventually mobile. I did acquire it early last summer and it has sat in a garage ever since. It has the Clinton VS1100 engine. Which I am now attempting to get running. currently dealing with ignition issues, as I am not able to get spark.

The eventual plan is to keep him as original as possible. Many of the original decals are still sharp and clear, so may be able to mask those off to repaint. One thing I can say about my little guy is he is small but robust! Every component is either steel or cast iron. Tough as nails, he is. New tires on the rear is also in order. I do not [ATTACH=CONFIG]15851[/ATTACH]imagine I will ever use him to mow with. More than likely show him, and put him in a parade or two. I do hope that my little guy appeals to you[ATTACH=CONFIG]15850[/ATTACH]r sense of compassion, as I sure did feel sorry for him when I first laid eyes on him. I am making an attempt at giving him a new lease on life.[ATTACH=CONFIG]15849[/ATTACH] A few shots of him. One in the old shed was as I found him. In the pickup anticipating the ride to his new home. And now, in my garage awaiting his transformation.

Seems like some stiff competition but since there doesn't seem to be others rolling in I will nominate my 1964 Cub Cadet 100. I use this tractor for mowing duties every week at my property as well as to mow my neighbors lawn. I also do some custom mowing for a friend once every other week with at well. In the winter it see's snow duty behind a 42 inch blade and I also use it at plowdays as well. It also sees work in front of a lawn cart and pulling my lawn sweeper and it has attended a few shows and been in parades as well.

It started off it's life as a model 70 but when I acquired it the engine was long gone and it was no more than a rollling chassis. I had an old K241 Kohler from a Wheel Horse in the shop so I dropped that in instead of the 7hp. With the exception of the engines a 70 and a 100 were the same machines so I have no guilt over calling this a 100 now instead of a 70. There were no fenders on it when I purchased it and the steering wheel was badly crooked as well as the hood being damaged. I fixed the hood and opted to change the steering wheel out to one from a later model 82 series and boy does it make a difference in steering. It feels so much lighter now than before. I also decided very early on in the project to paint it like a CaseIH tractor. Changing the colors and the steering wheel was part of making it look more modern and to change it to something different. I also changed 2nd gear from the low speed found in 100's to the high speed gear set from a 106.

I would like to nominate my panzer 1107 and murray 11/36.

The murray on the right is the tractor my dad and I restored a year ago. It is a 1978 model and has a 11 hp briggs that is all original. It is sporting a american flag in the hood and ol glory behind her. This tractor by itself says america with its red paint and its MADE IN THE U.S.A sticker.

The tractor on the left is a 196? panzer 1107. This tractor hasn't been in the colection for long, but is one of my favorites. In the photo it is sporting american flags on the deck lift and the drive control. It is also blue and with the murray beside it the colors make red, white, and blue.

Ok, I'm nominating for two people. First 1 is Member"Tex Tractor Jack". My dad's 1969 John Deere 112Patio.The Patio Series was the brain child of Deere to get the suburban area market's to buy a JD, but not in it's classic Green and Yellow. The market strategies failed terribly and Deere quit producing them only after 3 years. The Custom Color (Patio) Series is one of the most popular tractor to collect, not only for Deere collectors, but collectors of all brands.

We got this tractor at the local JD dealer in my home town. I had stopped by to check on suitcase weights. It was sitting there just waiting for me to take her home. We are planning a full restoration in the future, but for now it will stay in her work clothes.

The second nominee is my Montgomery Wards Hydro 12 made by Gilson Tractor Co. We think it's a 1968, but are not sure of year yet. It has 12 hp. Briggs in it and also has hydraulic lift. The hub caps are factory orginal also.

I got this tractor from my buddy Matt in north TX. on a trade we did a couple months ago. It runs like a champ and pulls as good as any other 12HP tractor I've owned. Up until 3 or 4 months ago, I didn't know a thing about these machines, but they are nice tractors. She is also in her original work clothes.

There are three of them with one vote which is surprising considering they are all great entries. I haven't voted yet because I can't decide. :D
