Looking to use for a hobby and just do parades and antiue shows. I do have a truck and a trailer to haul it. I have always like dthe A and B's, the hand crank models I find really interssting and fascinating. I dont need headlights, PTO's, power sterring and such. Just the basic hand crank style would be fine. Im pretty mechanically inclined so as long as it was complete, Im sure I can get it to run.

What are some things to look at for an old JD A or B that has been sitting. I have found a few that have been sitting in sheds with engine sthat crank and are not frozen just have not been started in quite some time. What is a fair price for complete but not frozen?

As for a price of a barn fresh JD A or B with decent tires straight tin and complete hand or electric start that's free I would say around $800-$1200. Tires are pricey but if you look around you can get a decent set for around $3-400 each. For parades do you really have to have $1500 Goodyears Or Titan tires ? No. They look good but you'll have more in tires then what the JD is worth. Also, if you get the JD that you were talking about and it is free and not stuck. These JD'S are not hard to work on. Very simple machines. They all take maintenance. They all or most leak oil/coolant. A few gaskets and time and patience is all that's needed oh yeah money too. Good luck with your choice. I have a handstart 1944 JD A that I really enjoy playing with. It needs tires and tubes but I found a local guy that's got a set of tires for $300 good tread and not rotten. Then I have to buy tubes at $65 a piece.
