ill have to get a picture when its light outside tomorrow, i just realized it has a landlord 101 grille on it as well. the allis hood is yellow on the bottom so i know its not original as it doesn't match anything else. we originally thought it was a repaint but we found another one like it in the guys junkyard which made us wonder. its the quality of a factory paint job too.........

IN BLUE? That's very unusual. I know Deere patio tractors were available in a variety of colors, didn't know about AC's.....

It could have been a government issued machine or a prototype of some sort. Blue ones were never available to the general public. In my 11-1/2 years of collecting I've never seen one.

Here she is, i didn't include the hood because i know thats not original, there is simplicity paint underneath the blue and with the landlord grille I'm thinking its actually a simplicity. beyond that, i have no idea, there is one more just like it in the guys boneyard though.

I've been at a few auctions where they were selling old tractors that had been used to mow or clear snow, etc, at local post offices. Some of them had been painted blue; some white.

what i mean is that even under the dash, in every little corner-theres blue paint, and the engine and grille are painted silver. yeah it was red at a time but its like someone went through a lot of trouble to leave no trace of it.....

I bet that Hubcap was not painted at the factory. I agree the first machine was probably a municiple machine and re-painted by a dealer. A Dealer would probably not be interested today.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
