I have a friend who purchased a late 40's model M a few months ago, and started resoring this tractor. He is only half done and has lost intrest in finishing the tractor. In my opinion the hard work is done (the cleaning and painting) all you would have to do is put the tractor back together.Almost all parts are new: tires, radiator, clutch, seat, steering wheel, guages, many seals, brakes, battery box, some sheet metal, decals, lights, fenders..... I just want a couple of opinions on what this tractor would be worth if I wanted to buy it, finish it, and sell it?

Thank you, Drew

well you wanted to know what an old international tractor is worth. i recentley brought a W6 tractor in going condition but a lot of work needed for $20,000.00. it has a belly oil pump and a set of standard head lights. i am seeking a starter motor and belt pully for it. when the tractor is fully done up i expect to sell it for around $45,000.00.

Did you get that forty five thousand out of your restored tractor?

I own a 1940 Farmall M. Its not restored but it still runs good. It has very few hours on it also. Thanks Ryan Olson

Well you mentioned $2,000 in parts so far. You won't make money at it I guarantee it. I have $3,500 in Corey's H and nobody in their right mind would offer me that.

I would offer $2,000 and see how he counters. He might let it go at that just to get rid of it. You would be getting a good deal at that price if it runs good. You didn't mention if the engine was overhauled or not.

When you go to sell the beast, you should get between $2500 and $3000 dollars for it. So the bottom line is how much you can buy it for.

In my opinion, you won't be able to make any money on this. A perfectly restored M will probably not bring more than $3200. They're great tractors for light chores, but they need a 3-point to make them truly useful and that'll add about $700 to the investment.

If your question is, "Can I make money on this deal?" the answer is NO! Even if your friend sells you all the new parts and supplies at half his costs it would be hard to sell the finished product at a profit. Unless you have a historically significant tractor or can find a buyer who is related to the tractor. Do it for fun/satisfaction. Dick

Most people involved in this site work, use
and restore old tractors because of a interest
or affection for the old Farmalls. I have 6 Farmall M's and one is still used for light farm
chores. The value of a restored gas M can be determined by
researching the want ads of this site and the sold tractor section. The selling price of a tractor is what the buyer will accept and the buyer will pay.
E-mail me for some information.
