Sadly it has to set out side.I bought it about a year ago and it had sat out for many years.I use it as a rough cut mower.To mow creek banks and a 1/4 mile road side ditch.Plus to pull heavy loads around.

I plan to build a large shed some day.Then it will be restored and kept inside.The only shelter it gets is a canvas for now.I started it about a week ago for the first time since last November.I pulled out the choke turned the key.It fired up like it had just be ran.

johndeere it doesn't look bad for sitting outside most of its life except for the seat it doesn't look bad at all.

It runs better then it looks LOL.The mower deck has seen better days has a few rust holes in it.I do take the deck off now and store it under a work bench in the winter.It is a shame it sat out all these years.The original owner just did not have a place for it inside just like me.But he did keep the oil and trans fluid changed.It is my work horse now.I do things with this GT I would not consider with my 2166 or LX277.When I get a shed or atleast a garage built I will restore it however.I have already checked into decal kits and a seat.That is my dream to have a 50x70 pole barn shed in the future and restore old Cubs and farm tractors.Will more then likley have a complete shop and a area petioned off for my vehicals.Then I will make my old garage I have now my paint booth for my projects.Atleast this is the plan.

Cubs

I have 2 Cubs a 104 ( 1969 ) and 129 ( 1974 )
I have scraped others for parts.
Found a 1450 for my son so he has his own now.

I used decks, trailers, snowblower and push blade on my units.

I just found a nice 1450 for sale. When were these built? This one I found is really nice, excellent paint, 14 HP Kohler, smooth operating hydro, hydraulic lift and what looks to be a 48"? wide deck. He is asking $700.

Joe the 1450 was built in the Mid 1970's. Hey Joe the Cub would look nice sitting next to the JD 316. My 106 looks like a lawn tractor when it's sitting next to the JD X485. I use the 106 for plowing and cultivating the gardens and the X485 for tilling them

Give me the serial number and I can tell you the year.
Sergeant is correct with the mid 70's but I would quest 76 or 77.

This tractor is from what is called the quiet line. 1079/ 1980 is the last year for Internation before MTD took over.

Here's a picture of my Cub 100. I bought it already restored. I had a Cub 106 that I was restoring before a garage fire. Insurance paid for this one. It's got a creeper and 3 point hitch. I have a mower deck for it that needs to be restored.

Here's a picture of the Cub 106 I lost in a garage fire. I had tuned it up and replaced the tires, sandblasted the mower deck undercarridge. I was getting ready for serious disassembly before the fire. It ran great, the previous owner had the transmission rebuilt and a new head gasket installed. This one came with a mower deck, plow and wheel weights.
