Nice!  I love those old tractors.  I have a 75 ST/16 and a 77 Hydro.

Thanks, yeah that picture is a little old now.  It was after a fresh restore.  The Onan in the hydro finally gave up.  I have another engine for it, but I have had other priorities right now.

Old Sears are pretty bulletproof machines. Interesting how some of them were almost in cub cadet colors. Weren't the larger engine models yellow while the smaller ones were still blue? Or were they all yellow those years? They made a lot with those same frames, that's for sure.

Color depended on year. Older were blue. Then yellowish. Then grey/silver.

EDIT: Don't forget about the orange ones in there too.  They were intermingled with the blue ones.
