Hi Round me in Manitoba Canada that"s a 500 to $1000 tractor depending actually how nice it is and how bad you want it!. If the motor needs pump/ Injector / machine shop work, go less than the $1000. you will spend quite a bit on it with parts and shop time. The market on this old iron has dropped in the last while. They are still a pretty common tractor. Maybe they just didn"t sell well in your area. Basically you got to buy it because you want it, Not spend $5000 on buying/ restoring it, and think your gonna see it and a profit back selling it on. I used to do them and sell to acreage guys. The last super major 5000 I had was sold for $3000 painted and all working/ good tires, 3 years ago that was a 4500 - $5000 unit. This past year I stopped doing them for re sale. I could not afford to buy them do the work and give them away at 2500 if I could find a buyer, the market dropped that bad round here. Now I just buy them to fill a gap in my collection or for parts I or other local guys might need. I seem to be the phone and ask guy in this area for fordson major help or parts the wreckers don"t have.
Regards Robert

Well I went and tried to buy it for 1500, and he told me he wanted at least 3000, I thought no way your nuts! Guess I'll try in another year or so, I just thought it was kinda neat.

Sorry to hear that. Go back and tell him to get it running/ driving and you would be a bit more interested in it at $2500. you won't be out of pocket then, and he might realize what a generous offer you made! . sounds to me that sentimental value is higher than scrap price again L.O.L. I meet these guys all the time so I'm use to it now. I bid a guy $500 for a tractor with bent fenders, flat tires, no starter , water in the oil pan, and 3 point missing. I wanted a couple of nice parts from it. Guy just about called the cops, said it was worth $2000 as is. I saw it advertised for best offer online a year later, and thought no way I'am calling buddy you had your chance with my money. A Guy asked me about parts soon after, guessed it was that tractor from what he wanted. I asked what he bid if he didn't mind me asking. He said the guy about took my arm off at $500, and couldn't help load it fast enough!.
Regards Robert

This is one of those guys that doesn't care If it sits or not, as soon as something goes wrong he parks it, he has equipment all over, where they shutoff is where they sit, they won't ever move again.
