That sure is a nice one. I wish I could find another. It is bad that so many of these have been scrapped. All the good machinery is being destroyed. I live in north central OK big time MM country and now I have to wonder how many G705s or GVIs ect still exist in Kay county. They are nearly all gone here and we had big dealers in the 50s 60s for MM.

R- I'm with ya there. All 3 of my MMs (G706D, G706LP, and this one) would have been considered scrap by many people. It's just not that hard (or expensive) to get them up and running. Parts are out there. My '65 G706LP is one of 20 made that year- how many are left? Would have hated to see it go to China, and it was close. I guess it's good that some of these cheap ones are available so poor folks like me can enjoy them!

Yes these machines are very important to me because without them I could not afford equipment. I have spent alot working over that 705 and it is cheap comapred to the alternative. If it keeps me out of debt, it's value is great. Scrapping tractors like these and imnplements is simplying throwing a LARGE sum of money into the trash.
