The burned out 300 is where my screen name came from, the previous owner caught it on fire, I paid $450 for this gem back in 1994 . This was before ebay, so all of my used parts came from local mower salvage yards, the hood and wire harness came from a 214, all the switches, battery, front and decals were new.

(My restored repainted burned300, the hood panels still warped from the gas fire, the only tractor I sold that I wish I had back.)
