This G705 was in the YT ads, about an hour from me. Seller wanted an IH H and a plow I had, so we traded. It"s LP, but converted to gas. All the LP parts came with it, so I"ll change it back. Don"t like dealing with gas since my stuff doesn"t get used much. Tractor is real straight, and the fenders are mint. Engine sounds good, as well as the trans/rear. Rubber covers still on the clutch and hydraulic levers. The guy only owned it about 2 years, but he believes the hours at 1400. Don"t know about that, but it"s not beat. No serial tag. Has splined axles, so not a "65. Don"t know how else to tell the year. I am missing the LP filter and tee fitting, so if anyone has one, I"d be interested. Also need a pair of single bevel 34" rims at 18-20" wide to mount up a pair of 20.8-34s.

Looks good. I think you can tell the year from the engine tag if you can read it. There are some serial list that give the engine numbers.

Wow, looks good, like a fun one to "shine up". I think you need to add a muffler to what you need list.

I think I saw this one a few months back over by Bloomington, Illinois. He had it on the local craigslist ads for months. I could not settle on a cash price with the owner, but im very glad to hear it found a good home if this is the same tractor I am thinking of. Most the MM I find around Illinois seem to be utility tractors or old letter series.
Good luck with your new find, Art.

Good looking old tractor!

Where did you find it?? I've heard guys out here call that style front tire a "sand tire"... I've seen some old tractors with those out near Muleshoe, TX, etc, where it is really sandy...

Art- I"m sure it"s the same one. He did advertise it for a long time. It was hard for me to justify another one for cash, but when he was willing to trade, it worked well for both of us.

Howard- It was NE of Bloomington, IL. I think those front tires are kinda unique, so I hope I can save them. Holding air so far...

Jack- She's fine with it- probably because I hauled two plows and a tractor out that day, and only brought one tractor back! That's a win for her!

A very good looking 705. Good that it is saved from the junker guys.
I had 11.00 " single rib tires on a 4520 and other tractors . The saved a lot of wear on the brakes as they "dug in" when turniing in loose dirt.
Worked good on a UTU and mounted corn picker on slippery, muddy hillsides.You will like them on the 705. clint
