    It looks great!! I have 2 of the 80 carts. One given to me from my Dad that he bought new in 1966. It is in about the same shape as yours before the overhaul. The other one I have I bought 2 yrs ago from a neighbor for $20 (serial # 815). The box and tailgate were in terrible shape. I threw those out and salvaged the rest. I am just about complete with rebuilding this cart and will post when it is complete. BTW I found the decal kit for the 80 here I plan on fixing up the one my Dad gave me next winter.

    Is there any chart [ like the old JD tractor serial number stuff in the back of their historical books ] that lets you know what year these 80's were made.?? I have one that I bought in the later 70's used that is serial number 018089M, bought with a used JD 140. I use it behind a JD 420 each summer/fall.. it still has it's original Goodyear Terra-Tire Ribs on it. Nice job, you do good work...

    no, only the early brass tags you can figure out the year, foil tags like this one are easy, since this one is 7846, it was made the 46th week of 1978. that alum. tag i posted is much like the on you are talking about. i would guess the one i posted is a 73, because they used up the patio decals when tge patios were phased out. if the 140 and the cart were bought together new, then maybe it would be the same year as the 140. this one still has the Goodyears on it too!

    I bought the 140 with the trailer about 76 or so. Figure it was a couple years old. Trailer has the brass tag, though... Thanks...!!! Jerry..

    well, after looking it says E080 is 1964-68, so it shouldnt have the big tires if the year is correct
