Should I go pick this up? (Updated pics 7/15)

Recommended Posts

Is this worth getting? (This post had a original CL ad link. I removed it as members warned me my deal may get swiped before I picked it up) See pics below in lower posts. Jack 7/15/12

15 Minutes w/ Motor and you didn't go get it? The ad has a number and I'll bet somebody offers more than free. Good luck and I hope he pulled the listing. I would too if I were you.

Call me naive or trustworthy, maybe foolish! Thanks for the warning, sorry I had to modify my posts above for now. Maybe it's every man for themselves? I hope not. I've been speaking to the guy for a few weeks, and we seem to have an agreement.

Jack - it's gotta be almost at the 'don't tell the wife' stage. better if you don't mention the 'tractor' word. out of mind, not a problem. :D just hide it somewhere. and never believe that she will understand any of it.fish sorry i tuned in kinda 'post edit' i look forward to pix of the wreck. parts are worth more than just parts. especially when you need one and it's rare, nla, hard to find, xpenzif, and it's on your parts rig.

You guys must have a better 'puter than me. I can't "see" what you are talking about. All I see is the title of the thread "Should I go pick this up?" and the first entry of the thread "Is this worth getting?". No pictures, no descriptions, zero other information. What exactly is everyone commenting on?

It was a craigslist thread for a simplicity parts tractor, 3112V I think. Looks like the thread was taken down.

Jack must have removed the link on edit, probably because the ad was taken down on CL as I could not find it on a search later! Luckily it was too far away and I already have too many! LOL:D

Here is the 42" plow, I paid $65.00 for it. I did not play hardball with him on this because he drove out of his way to pick it up for me, and he was giving me the tractor for free regardless of whether I bought the plow.

      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!😁
