So a couple days ago I picked up another model 80 cart, 1 for the 110. When I first seen it for sale I thought that someone had painted to match a patio tractor or that it might be an actual patio cart. Nope... not the case. Some 35-40 years ago a guy purchased this used cart and painted it orange to match his Allis Chalmers garden tractor.
It is in such good shape that I brought it home.

He painted right over the JD decals. Bottom of the tailgate is pretty clean, I need to figure out how to replace the bolt on the corner. I should say figure out how to get the nut on the bottom of the bolt.
It had a riveted tag which was removed, why?? There is green on the tongue where some orange has peeled. Correct me if I’m wrong, weren’t brass tag 80s green tongue and under carriage?
I wish that I could paint faded green on it so it would match my 110. I might use the hotsie pressure washer on it to see if it would peel the orange off.
Had to part with $75... hope I didn’t over pay. 🤔

Nice find! Yes, you guys are correct about the brass tag carts having the green undercarriage. 1969 and later carts had the black undercarriage.
