Lance Amatulli’s Wheel Horse 653

Amatulli’s restored/customized Wheelhorse 653.  Lance and Liz are from Huachuca City Arizona.  Lance restored this 1963 653 Wheelhorse. He replaced the engine with a 1974 Kohler 8 HP, relocate the starter to the right side and put ATV tires on the rear.  The headlights are off a Polaris RZR. To complete it he installed a new seat cover. AWESOME.

VINTAGE SEARS GARDEN TRACTOR SITES

Arizona vintage garden tractor collector, Mike Albertson, brought these two sites to our attention.  One is on the history of the Sears Suburban Tractor:

http://searssuburbanclub.webs.com/dyk-suburban-history

and the other is the best resource he has found for anyone interested in or is restoring a Sears Garden Tractor:

http://vintagesearsgardentractors.com/

Mike also was kind enough to let us see this ad of all the many Sears attachments.  He is showing 10 of these and two Sears Tractors at the Apache Junction, Arizona Tractor and Engine show March 11 & 12. (email for more info: briggsplanet@aol.com)

Sears Attachments for every season...every reason!
