Sweet for $75! I saw an old Craftsman GT in front of someone's house for $400. Looked real nice, my wife rolled her eyes when I slowed down to check it out! :sidelaugh

Great looking tractors!

Mine's an '82 16/42 Only used it two so far, I need a better ramp on the shed so I can get it in and out with the deck installed.

Unfortunately, I don't have any workinf pics yet:

The guy i bought it from has (had?) a set of the white hood/sides in good shape that i'd like to get.

It came with a 42" 2-blade deck. I'll get around to installing an electric PTO clutch to be able to use the blue Ford 3-blade deck.

I was going to as you about that deck (if it was from a ford) looks in real good shape
