it is in rough shape the fuel tank in it has 3 inches of rust and dirt and its full of holes. engine turns by hand but dont know last time it ran. this will have to be a compleet tare down and rebuild. and keep it original.

Spare parts is good, by the looks will really help the clean-up.

spare parts will definitly help with the restore. i could salvage the hood on it but having the nice spare to start with will save alot of time on this project.

You won't regret that purchase.  Paul is a great guy.  Glad it went to someone here!  

Now we have to change the owners name to you in the database for these tractors. LOL

As of now we have 14 tractors accounted for in the registry.  There are three individuals that own two each.  We have serial numbers for 11 of these logged.  As for production numbers, well that's anyone's guess.  Based on the configuration of the foil tags, we are guessing that two production runs were made.  My guess is 1975 & 1976 since those are the two years they were shown in the Montgomery-Ward literature.  The lowest serial number from the first run that we have registered is #2 & is owned by @Talntedmrgreen.  The highest serial number we have logged from the first run is #70 (Yours).  I have the only one logged from the second run & that is serial #7.  It wasn't until Serial #7 from the first run materialized a month after mine did then we noticed the differences in the configuration of the foil tag.  Note the two different serial #7 tags.
