Anyone got one on here? I am 17 and have been wanting one ever since they came out but I knew there was NO way I was gonna get one cause they only made 36 and they are upwards of 2,000 dollars for them when you find them. Well long story short I was at a local auction and lo and behold I saw a chrome 1066 there!!!!!!!!! But it was in sad shape the top was cracked in and the light was missing on the cab as well as the grab bar. I thought what the heck and bid on and got it for 45 bucks!!! (this was about 3 years ago) It was only till after I bought it I figured out that Charles Burkholder sold the tractor. I didnt know him at the time so I emailed him. He told me that it was a prototype tractor that Ertl made before the run of 36 and they cracked in the top so they couldnt be sold or confused for the original run of 36. He also said that it was rarer than the 36. Well I always wanted to fix it and after 3 years I did. I got a white top from Chuck Burkholder and painted it and put in a new light. I also fixed the rear wheel. (it was backwards.) Now I have an even rarer tractor that I thought I would never get!!!!!! Im NEVER gonna sell this tractor.
Here are some of the before pics.

I will get after pics soon. I still need to upload them.

I will agree they must be rare.

I have never seen one of the 36. And this is the first proto type that I have seen.

Good find on your part.
