This is one of my oldest sons most recent acquisitions...
E792ADE9-C6DA-43E6-9220-37DBF62FDB4C.jpeg

It is a 95% original 1964 854 that he bought from the estate of the original owner. Caleb added the Nelson Stack and the fluid filled AGs and a fresh seat pad. All paint is original except lift arm and a section of the steering tower where it broke at the frame.

It is a super fun little machine...

And the originality makes it a time capsule from a simpler time!

Nice. You may be right on the year for the B80, they were made 1974-1977 and can be determined by model number. The C101 however was built 1978-1979 which can also be determined by model number.

91-10K802= 1979 C Series Garden Tractor C-101 8-Speed
ya there were model /serial number tags on the B80 but nothing on the C101. I was going by memory recall from something I read from a chart on the Red Square Site about a year ago. That was about the time I was working on it to get it up and running for my daughters house.

Thanks Kraig! That was taken at the Symco Thresheree and Antique Tractor Show. It is a really awesome event with lots of vintage iron. They have lots of on site demonstrations including harvesting the wheat field in the background. The sky/field/background/lighting was just right that day and so I snapped a couple of pics right after we unloaded.
