    Help with Round Fender VIN

    I have a, what I believe is a 66 112. My VIN starts with T. T2314 -002606M to be exact. Some local guy said it should have started with SNT instead of just T. I have read on the internet both are correct. You must look at the serial number to tell year.

    I was wondering if it true that the serial number means more than the prefix (SNT vs T).

    Thoughts?

    That looks right to me. I believe 66 112’s had the same serial numbers range as 63 110’s. 2550-3550.

    That would be #55 made. Is it hydraulic lift or manual? They are the 2 rarest GTs Deere made. I think the split was 3-400 hydraulic lifts, the larger remainder were manual. They made 1000 1963 110’s but they are all manual lift.

    Thanks for the reply. People were trying to say its a 67 due to the T starting the VIN instead of a STN. It seems like the internet is split. Half side with me and half say its a 67. I say its a 66 fresh of the line.

    67's have serial number 3,551-100,000. you do not have a 67.

    as for the supposed debate, I have been following JD vintage GT's for a couple years and have never even seen it asked until now, let alone debated.

    Guy on here tried to convince me it was a 67. I am looking for parts so I sent him a VIN pic. He went on and on. I used google and found multiple threads/ conversations about this topic. I am new to this hobby, so I thought I could be wrong.

    Everyone just confirmed that I was right.

    When it comes to parts the type code doesn’t matter, with the exception of the original tire/Wheel combination. The Parts catalog goes by the 6 digits on the right side. Many small changes are done mid year when supplies of old designs run out.

    I had one purchase blow up because the seller insisted they had a 68 round fender. I tried to get the serial number without debating year, but for some reason they didn’t want to. I could see the tag in a picture but couldn’t read it.

    1967 110's had the foot rests welded on, earlier ones were bolted on. I believe this to be the case with the 112 model also. If the s/n tag is original, that's the best way to determine the model year. As mentioned, Deere made changes and used older parts. In 52 years, users swap stuff or have to use newer parts too!
