Just to help you out, I bought a 1955 and later 953 running gear in July for $400. Tires were so-so and since I will be restoring I am putting new tires on it. Just letting you know the value of a complete wagon.
If I were you thought I would at least put it on Craiglist with pictures, your not out anything and maybe someone can use it. At least save the rims, as you see people looking for them occasionally.
Also does it have the JD stamped hubs or is it the later style without the JD stamped hubs?
