I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

I was just thinking....( My wife says that is a bad thing to do. ) Is there any way we know how many 1947s are still around.
Are We Having Fun Yet ? :D

There is no accurate source. Even a good guess wouldn't help. Every owner of one would have to post to a registry and there is no known registry that exists. I have four of them.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Yup. Complete or with 47 parts on later year tractors.

I have 47 year parts on my Johnny Cash Cub.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I got one. Bought it about 8 months ago. Had been sitting out in the weather for 7 years. Motor was not locked up. Did a LOT of work on it over the
8 months and a lot of time. Now, she purrs like a kitten. Not a beauty by any means. She had been used as a farm and garden tractor, and I plan to do
the same with her. Just curious and I know that it depends on mechanical and physical condition and some other things, but is the 1947 model more "desirable" since it was the first year made?
