This is what I was thinking, and it is within driving distance for me. I’m thinking about what he considers a non-runner to be?
Stuck? Well we know that’s not necessarily a swan song. Maybe that’s all it is.
I’m not exactly rolling in cash right now but if someone doesn’t be me to it I might have to follow up on this one.

Yeah, that is NOT a picture of the Cub that's for sale. This idiot stole someone else's picture. That's false advertising. If you post an ad on Craigslist any pictures you use are supposed to be of the actual item you have for sale, not some dolled-up photo you stole off google images.


I understood that it was not the picture of the Cub for sale. He pointed that out in the ad.

Ok, thought about it for one minute longer than I should have. :roll: I sent him a message. We’ll see where this ends up. :wink:

Hopefully he can send you some pictures of the actual tractor he has, and give you more info on the non-running comment.

I like how he states "now's the time to customize the tractor with paint and tires". Sounds like he's remodeling a mobile home before moving it to your land :roll:

I wonder if it's too late to get chrome rims and a subwoofer?

He actually states that he finished the one in the photo last year and the one he’s working on now will look “similar”.
Might be a teen doing this to make extra cash, if it is there are worse things he could be doing.

I got ahold of the fellow. The non-runner has a cracked block. I said I may be still interested in it if it’s complete but he’s determined to strip it down to bare minimum and make it yard art.
He said he had a square nosed cub he’d sell for $1,300. No straight answers on anything. Not feeling comfortable with buying from this guy.
