Man, that's a nice looking straight Cub. Looks to be well cared for.

I like the yellow and white on the round nose Cubs.

Very strange, it has the newer steering gear, old style hood and grill, looks like a 12 volt starter, I think the front tin has been changed

Well, he DID say it was a '65, I expected a square nose :?

Serial# and/or casting codes would help clear that up.

I asked about these same things when I bought it, the Guy said that this is the way it was when he got it from his father in law. The only other change that I can see is the left final drive has been changed out. But I do like the way it looks. Walt

The serial# is 227178 J. The casting code on the clutch housing is 12 14 L. The casting code on the touch control cylinder block is 11 4 L. This is all that I can see without getting really greasy. If can help me confirm the year with these numbers I would be appreciative. Thanks, Walt

Casting codes and serial both agree: 1965.
