What does a VINTAGE 1964 JOHN DEERE garden tractor, $20 (twenty dollars), and a gal. of GAS have in common? ANSWER: FABULOUS FIND ALERT (of the century)!!!

Hubby and I came across a yard sale at an old farm some months back. The young man there was trying to sell this JOHN DEERE to someone else. It wouldn't start.

My hubby walked over to see it and I followed moments later. The young man said "I really need to get rid of a lot of things my Grandparents had...they're deceased now...I don't want this stuff

The young man said "Can't get it started, don't know what is wrong with it. It hasn't been started in years. My hubby said "What are you asking for it? The young man said $50.00. We looked at each other and before we could say "We'll take it, the young man spoke up and said...How about $20.00? I need it GONE! SOLD! SOLD! SOLD! SOLD!

We took our FABULOUS FIND home. Still sitting on the little trailer, my Hubby and Brother first put some GAS in that VINTAGE JOHN DEERE. LOW and BEHOLD, it STARTED RIGHT UP!

This JOHN DEERE 110 is as SWEET as it can be! Starts up everytime, has the original mower deck, the JD STEERING BUTTON + other things. It PUTTS so PRETTY around the yard! We do not mow with it, just treat it SPECIAL! Hope you enjoyed this FABULOUS FIND!!

  9. Hello,
    Thank you for visiting us and following Red Rose Alley. I noticed the church feeder with the red roses and thought it was so lovely. The red rose is beloved to me. I was reading your about me, and saw that your kids are grown, and you live with many acres surrounding you. I would love to have a home in the mountains one day, and my kids are grown too. I hope you visit us again soon, and have a wonderful week.

  10. Wow, wow, wow! Did you say $20 ? That is unbelievable. What a fun blessing! It is so cute and I am sure you will give it a great new home!

  11. Thanks for visiting me! LOVE LOVE your glider!!

    I have similar john deere sitting in my yard right now my husband talked my neighbor into giving it to him. Had sat in her yard for years...and he has it running!
    Great buy for the vintage one!

  12. WOW, that WAS a fabulous find! Congratulations! We have an old John Deere mower that's not as old as yours but it's from the 70s "AND" we are still mowing with it. We have had "LOTS and LOTS" of OFFERS to buy it! They say they don't make them like these any more. "I think I already knew that"!
    Thank you for sharing,
    Have a wonderful week,

    1. Thanks Everyone for the sweet comments on my John Deere Mower! Yes, I do have a lot of FUN with it, riding around the yard from time to time. My husband says its mine (even though I feel it should be his). It's very special to me~~~~From one sweetie to another....Roxie
