Would a 1966 BOLENS Garden Tractor be considered an antique tractor?

I would consider any garden tractor prior to the late '60s an antique. Riding garden tractors really only got their start in the early '60s. There were some around before then, of course, but only really started to get built in large numbers at this time. Prior to this, the two wheeled, walk-behind tractors were the definition of "garden tractor". The neat thing about many '60s garden tractors is that they were ruggedly built and designed to pull plows and cultivators as well as they could mow grass.

I bought this Bolens new in 1966
It has .
4' front blade
38" MMM
Rear Tiller.
In 38 years I've moved a lot of snow dirt gravel slag and mowed with it a bunch.

Ya think my new Kubota Bx 23 will last as long.
