I promise that I am about to switch to the Farmall Cub topic, but here's an interesting development in my Cub-ogling. (not to be confused with Cub-googling, which I have also done
I vaguely remembered the serial number but hadn't written it down. Then I looked at the serial number range-by-year list here and
The fellah selling it swears it was sold to him as a '53 Cub, and that he saw the bill of sale to the previous owner, who also thought it was a '53. Well, guess what the serial number is......
Now t'ain't no '53, is it?
That's a 1948 if I'm not mistaken. The serial number plate is right where it should be and doesn't look like it was ever moved/replaced... and who would want to make it older anyway?
Now, considering the great running condition it's in, that doesn't make me NOT want to buy it... maybe that's even more cool
But this little lady sure did surprise Arthur by telling him something he didn't know about tractors! Going back this afternoon, mostly likely to give him a check....
Is there an emoticon for 'SUSPENSE BUILDING'
