Princess '55 Lawn Mower to Farm Tractor

Postby PVF1799 » Fri Aug 09, 2013 9:12 pm

Got a chance today to get the Ag tires and rims off of Rex '48 onto Princess '55. The turf tires w/chains have been on her since we obtained this tractor ~10 years ago. She now looks like a working farm tractor. Wheel weights are off of Rex '48 as he's getting new ones. You'll note in the one the photos - she has a newly painted rim - while repair a flat I took the opportunity to sand blast, prime and paint. Imagine how sweet Rex '48 will look.

Finally I see a CUB that looks exactly like mine, grill and all. But always thought mine was a '52 and serial # in the 12000's. If PRINCESS '55 has that grill could mine be a '55 ? And actually think the '52's were really in the 14000's ? Well, now you all know what a few of you thought about some of my posts ..." this guy knows nothing about TRACTORS" !
