I got this from the original owner, a 82 year old woman! :thumbs:
Her husband kept it nice for many years until he passed away. Then the tractor just sat around not being used. It came with this mower deck and a nice snow blade that was hardly used. :WRS: I don't see one part that has been changed! Cool...even has the cigar lighter. :notworthy:

I don't know what you paid for it, but I bet she was glad to sell it to someone who would give it TLC on into the future.

Very nice

Great looking machine...my dad has a 607 (bought it used) and I remember it looking as new as that one does...when I was about 10 years old...that was 32 years ago. Great find!

SHAZAAM! That's one clean '67. From the condition of the tractor and deck, I would say the man's wife must have mowed their yard with a push mower .... that tractor is nearly showroom grade! :banghead:

I'm going to start reading the Obit. Section.

Very nice machine. You can tell the machines from the 60's and early '70's were highly valued by their original owners. I'm glad to see them go to folks that are going to respect and take care of them as they did.

:banghead: :thumbs: :ROTF: H/Head that is a nice ride it looks like it was taken care of for many years. I have been collecting the 57 series for awhile now and I have all of them except the 657. I was told once I should pick one of these up, but I was mot interested at the time because it was not a Start/Gen series.but after seeing yours I think I am changing my mind. I think Trading is in my future. I hope u enjoy 657 for many years to come.T/Care Gary B.....
