It’s actually more rusty than it looks in the pictures. My wife actually said “if you buy it you’re going to have to restore it back to shiny red!” I couldn’t believe those words came out of her mouth!

Nice score :handgestures-thumbupright:

you might be suprised if you do a little wet sanding and remove some of the rust there probably is some red under there.

I have a hood that is dent and rust free that I can use, first I have to get it 100% mechanically fixed. I will go over the engine and make it purr again. It also needs transmission gaskets and axle seals. Hubs and axles are tight. Honestly I need another project like I need a hole in the head, but I’ve wanted a nice RJ for a long time so.......

Only original once, glad you got it!  I would have went for it.  I built up a collection of odd and rare garden tractors still can't find an original rj oh well someday!

What's up Don, does it have the rare factory twin fuel tank option I'm seeing there?  :wacko:

So, no longer just @c-series don, this begs the question. Does she have any sisters?

Seriously though, I can taste the clouds of rust flakes flying off the wire wheel on the first pass.

More pics when you can.
