Picked this up a few days ago in Portage, WI at Tractor Daze (a large Garden Tractor show).

I'm just about to start the tear down. Not sure what I'm going to do yet, but this one won't be put back to "stock"

Had one of those back in the late 70s when I bought my first house. A stout machine.
It was a sad day when IH sold it off to MTD....

Those are the ORIGINAL 50 year old tires that came on these from the factory!

Yes, of course. One was flat, so I took them off right away. I'll media blast them, powder coat, and then have a nice set of small Ag tires installed. The rears will be next....

I think I'm going to take the tractor apart, thoroughly de-grease, scrub and "sand" it down a bit, and perhaps clear coat over the "patina"....but install nice nice big new rims and tires, and a small exhaust stack with rain flapper

They sure are!!! Almost all these old Cub's come with the original tires still holding air. Crazy.

Isn't that something? I've seen some ~50yr/old JDs and Case garden tractors with the original rear rubber as well. Front tires, not so much.

Looks like a great project either way Phishin. I look forward to some pics!
