Hello all,

I am generally the type that likes to thoroughly research and make an educated and confident decision on a purchase such as this, but circumstances require I forego my methods and work with what I'm given. Long story short, I have the opportunity to buy the tractor shown below from someone whom I (and my father) have done work for in the past. He knows nothing about it, even though he recently spent a couple grand restoring it. I had to do a reverse google image search just to find out it was a Case.

It looks really nice in the pictures, but it's obviously been repainted, so it might be a cherry, or it could be a trash heap that's been freshened up.

It is currently at his getaway house in the mountains, about 3 hrs away. We are going to make a weekend trip up to check it out, but since I don't know what model it is, or even if it's gas or diesel, can anyone give any insight at all into what I am looking at? What should I be looking for? Any questions I could try to ask him? Any thoughts on the value?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like a 530 Case. Fine example of a solid American made tractor. If the price seems reasonable and it's running decent I wouldn't be at all scared.

Check for welds on the loader frame ,front axle, and anywhere else they shouldn't be. I agree with should have some papers for parts bought or other work hired out on it.

Why does he know so little about it? At very least he should be able to show some receipts for work/Parts.

Looks like a handy utility tractor and it does have the weights you need with the loader so that is a plus. I do not know Case so that is all I can say.

You should post this down on the case forum, lots of experts there that could likely give you a good answer. With 3 point rather than eagle hitch, assuming that is factory, that would make it a 430 o r maybe 530. 3pt came later in the 30 series production, but it does not have the latest steering and front axle setup so not a real late 30 series. There are so many transmission options on those that can make a difference in value. Being a gas or diesel will make a difference too. But if it runs good and tires are not rotten the price should start at 3k and go up from there.

Reading your story and looking at the pics (sorry, no idea of value), it looks like a nice, well-cared for tractor. Not much more to add except I would guess it is a diesel. Someone else here will give you a lot better info for sure.
