The ONLY logical reason to buy a 130 Case would be to restore it for use as a parade/show tractor.

Values can differ widely depending upon local demand as well as condition and how complete this one is. However, if it is complete and has not been butchered, then on average.....$300.00 is a fair price.

The 130 and the 180 models were the first CASE branded garden tractors available after CASE purchased COLT in late 1964. They are the only models with round-top fenders. I would not call either model RARE, especially the 130 which probably outsold the 180 model 3 to 1 in 1965. The 180 is difficult to find compared to the 130 but they are still out there.

The mower deck was unique to the 1965 models but 1965 Colts used the same deck. Decks from later models could probably be made to work BUT......why bother? Buy it. Restore it. Preserve it. Show it. This 130 has paid its dues and deserves full retirement.

My plan would be to restore it and have a complete uinit when I'm done. The tractor looks complete and unbutchered but needs paint bad. The hub caps are missing.

Hubcaps were NOT standard. They were optional. And they remained optional for all Low Pro models. Good luck finding a decent "original set" of caps. I am not aware of any aftermarket units that replicate the OEM caps.

Mower decks were not standard either because the 130 was a GARDEN TRACTOR, not a LAWN TRACTOR. As such, there is no requirement for a deck in order to have a "complete unit." When dealers placed orders, tractors came in as a separate item. Decks were packaged as individual items and so were snow blowers, utility blades and so forth. When a customer sat down at the dealer to buy a CASE Garden Tractor, he started off with a BASIC tractor and then added whatever options and attachments he needed. Some tractors were sold with no deck. Instead, they were fitted out to power the hydraulic rototiller.

A mower deck on a CASE show/parade tractor is a PITA. They barely clear the ground when fully raised. It is common for them to hang-up when loading the tractor on a trailer. No one will criticize you for not having a mower deck. If they do, then they don't know what they are talking about.
