Found this for my son for Christmas. He should be tickled with it. Rebuilding he carb now as it has sat for a while. Then a good cleaning and polishing and she should look good.

Nice looking 57(?)!
That will make a real good father-son project.

That's an awesome way to convince the wife to get a new tractor, just kidding. Hope your family gets years of enjoyment with it. Merry Christmas!
God is good, all the time!

Nice! You'll have fun with the "57", she looks pretty straight and complete too.
So how does one keep a Cub in hiding until Christmas? kinda like trying to keep a "surprise puppy" quiet..... :lol:

Well I got it running today. A carb rebuild and she fired right up.

Then started to polish it. I won't be doing any painting on it. I like her in her clean work clothes.

Maybe now I'll get one back. (Though I really really doubt it.)

Watching that video I think I know what the mission will be for next Christmas, you'll be hunting down a loader for the Cub :).

There is one on Craigslist out in Columbus OH. But fortunately that is to far for me to go. They want as much for the loader as I almost paid for the cub.

I checked out that loader on the Columbus craigslist. It looks like there is no bracing to either the front end or the rear end. The whole thing just twists on the bell housing. I wouldn't use it without some serious redesign.

You need the one in the second pic, the white one back in the shed. Looks like a 1000 to me.
