Yes the title is right the green 1960 ride a matic is Bolens buy number 95.

Dad and mom took a trip north to see the colors last Friday on the way dad decided to pick up some tractors. We have been looking for a 1960 ride a matic for some time to help complete having all the years. This 1960 has been on CL for some time and turned out to be the son in law of the owner who passed away this summer was trying to sell it. He was happy to know it was going to a collector and was going to have a good life like it did with his father in law. So off they went for the over 3 hour trip to Cheboygan Mi to pick up the 60 and on the way there was another 1961 ride a matic in Clare that my dad decided to buy as well. They got there loaded up the 60 next to the 61 and stopped at a local place to get lunch. There my dad learned from someone that seen the tractors on the trailer that just down the road was a former bolens dealer. Of course he had to go investigate only to find a closed store with a sign and a number stating call for appointment. He wrote down the info and headed home. He would later called the owner and learn he was a bolens dealer for 35 years and still has stuff left. We made plans with him to come back on another weekend down the road to look around.

So here is the 1960 a very nice never been painted tractor that would of ran on pickup if there was gas in the tank. We put gas in it when they got home and it ran!

Here is the 1961 another good parts tractor or down the road I do have the parts to make it a complete tractor.

Very nice. Looks good being all original. Too bad you didn't have time to check out the old dealer.
We will be looking into it down the road.

Nice finds! I just took some pics of my last 2 I bought, but can't touch because of breaking my hip while buying them in New Hampshire. Just got home after buying them 3 weeks ago. I'll be out there asap working on them and getting the model and serial numbers to send to you for your records. I need a 59 and a 62 to have one of each year.
