The missing radiator cap is the least of your worries; other parts are harder to find and more expensive. Look at the exhaust/intake manifold and the fuel tank, at the very least.
My advice: Don't get caught up in what the tractor is worth. If you undertake a major project like this, you'll probably wind up spending more money than you could ever sell the finished product for; folks restore these tractors because they like old iron, and because they like a challenge. Myself, I think Fordsons are a lot of fun, and a Fordson F definitely catches people's attention when you run one.
Some of the die-hard antique tractor collectors out there turn up their noses at Fordsons because there were so many of them made (nearly 3/4 of a million). Yes, they are more common than most other tractors from that era, it's true, but how many machines of any kind are in operating condition after 80+ years?
If all he is asking is scrap price, go for it. Save this old workhorse from the scrappers, because there will never be another Fordson F manufactured, and parts are getting scarcer every time the price of scrap goes up. Even if you decide not to put this tractor back into running condition or restore it, you can always part it out and help other folks keep their own Fordson F tractors going.
That’s my 2¢ worth.
