Square nose loboy

Sun Feb 17, 2013 12:08 pm

I was talking to a guy near me who has a square nose cub loboy. It is missing the serial tag so don't have s/n, the casting date he has found so far is engine block 3-15-W, torque tube 3-27-W, rear axle housing 2-5-W. The engine number he gave me is 600120292676X. I have seen a pic of the tractor, it is a red square front cub loboy. I can't figure these numbers out. Maybe someone else can.

"W", is 1973 date code. Ed

This cub appears to be a 63 or 64 model. It is 12v with starter button on dash, with wide deluxe seat. W 1951 is too early and W 1973 is too late. And that engine number is confusing.

Bill,
The tractor has been repainted and decals not on it. Here is a link for it.

The hood has been cut at the tank and rubber strip installed .

Sorry had to repost the link.

Somebody smack me upside the head! The key word here is Loboy which I completely missed. That souther chill this weekend worked on the brain. Paul, you are correct that it wouldn't be a W since Loboys were not produced with that cast date. Has the fella checked the finals. It may be that this is a regular Cub that somebody changed the front end and finals on to convert to a Loboy.

Somebody must have done a whole lot of swapping.....
Do I see a long steering shaft? That's late '63 or later.
Looks just like my parts loboy, but with a whole lot better paint....

Looks like it has a flasher bracket but no holes in the finder for the light bracket.

There is a guy here in Lenoir that has converted several to Lo boys. Might be one of his victims. LOL

It very well could be . The seller told me he got it from a man that had worked for Rooster Bush for years and had owned cubs over the years.
