That makes me think that maybe the early production models have yellow footboards instead of the typical black.
While not midgets, they did do just that. The most notable one is the CCC flier with the SGT (Super Garden Tractor):I like how they use midgets to make the tractor look big.. Looks like you get more for your money.. lol
i also have been asking how this spring latch works, even after see the brace i have no idea how these operate. it seems most are gone maybe and not used. i would love to go to one these shows they have and see the tractors first hand. is there any in east PA this summerWould like to know what you guys think. I just bought a 122 the other week and it appears to be a 1965. It has the 2 holes on the hood cross brace and bracket under the battery tray. I will attach a few pictures to give you guys an idea. I've read online that there were a few built in '65. I own a 1967 Model 71 and non of the items are present for the hood spring. Any information is welcome.
