Well, for your Craigslist Consideration today here's a 1965 John Deere garden tractor. $850 cash, firm, FOB Pomeroy WA.
Let's get the elephant in the room identified, shall we?
The Koller k181 8-horse gas engine is tired. It WILL need rebuilding, probably rings/piston and hone the cylinder.
Last in use about seven years ago, the little engine was consuming oil at an accelerated rate, and eventually gradually lost compression.
A prime candidate for restoration, this little round fender is classic and collectable Deere at one of it's finest moments for home owners.
3-Blade mower deck.
Front lip on the fiberglass hood could use some love.
And, the tires are showing plenty of age cracks.
Thanks for looking!
