    That is a beautiful tractor there. I got to ask about the hood stand/ upper dash area though. Are there a bolt of two missing where the upper is attached to the lower? Looks like the upper dash has been separated a little on one side by some sideways force on the steering wheel. Im not picking on your tractor here, just wanting to know if it has always been like that, quality issue at the factory/dealer maybe? If it is, it definitely adds to the uniqueness of the tractor and would be a talking point. Would be a hard decision on whether to fix it or leave it as is considering what these models are all about.

    Thank you for posting a video, that is a very nice example and it was great to see the beautiful condition of it all round.

    Hi Martin

    You have an excellent eye for detail. The bolt is not missing. The spot where the two panels join was never bent to a 90 degree angle so that caused the space you speak of. That was an oversight in production and could be easily fixed. Funny, I never noticed that until you pointed it out. I went to the garage to check it out and could see it immediately. I will not fix this because I feel it adds value to the tractor lol.

    wow, I wonder what sort of qc problem would have warranted them 'reworking' a part or parts, if this got through? I could see when you went around the rear of the tractor with the camera how the upper dash was 'twisted' like and also the hood not fitting correctly on this part. All caused by the upper dash not being mated properly with the lower piece. And all for the low price of $8650.00.....

    Hey sir , can i get a discount on this one?

     

    Alright, I will stop hijacking your classified now, sorry......

    This is a beautiful Wheel Horse.  You've probably noticed that most of us on the Red Square forum appreciated the "lore" and  "lineage" of the tractors and accessories we display and talk about.  It's part of their value, understanding the history of how a piece of equipment came to exist today in its current state.  These are antiques, their history is part of their value.  Can you offer a little background on your 30 year old LSE?   How it has been owned, the story of your acquisition, how it has been kept, and the circumstances of it's never being used?

    I showed my wife the video of this tractor and told her i wanted it ,, she just laughed and said "you would never use it , you would keep it on a velvet carpet in a glass bubble , and never use it".. So i thought on it a minute and said yes a tractor this beautiful deserves to be maintained in its present condition , not worked like we all do with our tractors,, lol , so i guess that point goes to the wife,,lol

    Your wife is right! However, the opportunity to own something that only 200 were made and have it be a Wheel Horse has to be appealing as well. :)

    We have #86 on our showroom floor, it was my Dad's he got  it in 1986. Being a Wheel Horse dealer he never sold it to a customer, it sat on his showroom floor for ever. when he retired he did take it home and put a snow blower on it. When he passed away 2 years ago we decided not to sell it from the estate. The 420LSE has now found a home on my showroom floor for folks to admire. I have 4 son's so hopefully it will be on the showroom floor for the 3rd generation. I have often wondered where the rest of them got to and if any dealer really got the $8650.00 retail price.

    That's a great story. I would love to pass mine along but that's just not going to happen.

    It was in the paperwork I got when I bought it.
