About 6 months ago I acquired my Gilson LT 12/38. It's the only tractor out of the 3 that I own that isn't a Murray. But compared to Murrays the build quality is twice as good. I'm wanting to keep it as factory original as possible besides a few small mods here and there. I would like to find more information about these tractors as I think it would be cool to own Ford and Lawn Boy versions as well eventually. The original engine was not in it when I got it so I don't know the year of it.
