Just bought another cub red square hood

Mon May 27, 2013 7:41 pm

Hello, after purchasing my first cub last fall I felt the need to add another one to my collection. This weekend I just added the second cub to my collection. I'm new to this great forum with great people and lots of help and advise I also posted a picture of my newest cub. This one came with a front plow and a 42 belly mower and it runs great!

It looks good Jason. And you have the new gas cap and spare rear tires for it already!!

I think it is a Johnny Cash cub I am not sure that is a true square nose, breather is too tall , steering shaft too short.

Congratulations on the second cub. I love it, it looks great. Welcome to the forum from Arkansas. My first cub that I still have some 17 years later is a "Johnny Cash" cub and is still the one I consider the best. I am not an eagle eye on what parts are right, I just like red. Have fun with it.

Hey Jason, in case you're wondering what a "Johnny Cash" Cub is, Mr. Cash had a song years ago titled "One Piece at a Time", about working in the factory building Cadillacs. He proceeded to "borrow" parts over the years and build his own Cadillac... key phrase is "over the years" as it was a collection of multiple years and quite a masterpiece !

Just like you, he had great pride in his ride !

I'm happy for yah, don

Serial number and a casting code or two and you should be able to tell the Cub's year.

Looks great the way it is! Enjoy it!

Casting codes and serial tag confirm that most of the tractor is a 1952, I think I'm going to keep the square hood on it as it seems to look nice with it on. Since I already have a 1953 they both won't be the same then.

Cash had one built. It passed me one morning as I was going to work. Quite a site. Your cub looks a whole lot better.

Also has an early grader blade frame and linkage on it. Pre-model-Cub54 if I'm not mistaken
