I have hauled home another tractor. I've been looking at a few round fender 110s and found this manual lift model in running fair condition. The hood has a small crack in front, but no chunks missing. It is also missing the front draft plate. This also have the narrow front tires. The tractor came with a few extras including two sets of round fenders, two dash panels, and a grill. The deck is also included, but needs quite a bit of repair and rust removal.

Looking forward to restoration.

Congratulations on the 110

What material is the hood made out of? 90% of the 110's I have seen have a crack in that same spot in the hood.

The John Deere hoods are all made out of fiberglass. On the round fender tractors, they will crack in the middle of the front lip or in the front corners. This is due to how you put the hoods on and off - you have to literally spread the sides of the hood to move them away from the pins which stresses the front lip and corners of the hood, which ultimately cracks them. Those cracks are common to all those old round fender John Deeres.

That looks like a good starting point for a restoration. Please keep us informed on your progress with it.

To further clarify my point on the hood, the below picture shows a '65 110 with the hood open. The arrow is pointing to the pin (there is one on each side). To remove the hood, you pull out on both sides of the hood until the pin clears the uprights. This action causes stress on the hood to where it can crack in the front and in the front corners.

I had another RF fan tell me the way to prevent this from happening is loosening the bolts at the bottom of the hood towers. It allows the hood to come off without flexing as much and prevents cracking and breaking.
