I have a 49 Allis B. It runs and I have extra parts for it. I put new turf tires on it and I painted the rims. I also started to paint other componets, but now I want to sell it. My question is will I get enough more for it completely painted and assembled, or should I not bother to finish it and sell it as is?

Thanks

A tractor person would rather have it clean but rough, so we can see what's wrong. The people woh mow their yards with them tend not to be tractor people and want it pretty so the spouse doesn't mind it too much. If it runs it brings $1000 and $1500 with mower. If it's pretty but no mower $1500, with mower, $2250. As a compparison, I'll have $4000 in my 'nice' one with mower and expect to get $2500 out of it. My Dad's will have about $2200 in it and would bring $1500 (I added live hydraulics and a front blade) if I ever sold it (not happening).
At least that's how it works in my neck of the woods...

That is really hard to tell. It would all depend on the pool of buyers in your area. Some people buy paint so to speek when they are looking for a tractor. Others want something to paint so they can say they restored there baby. I have seen tractors that needed overhauled and painted that sold for more than a actual restored tractor at the same aucton.

Today's Featured Article - Earthmaster Project Progress Just a little update on my Earthmaster......it's back from the dead! I pulled the head, and soaked the stuck valves with mystery oil overnight, re-installed the head, and bingo, the compression returned. But alas, my carb foiled me again, it would fire a second then flood out. After numerous dead ends for a replacement carb, I went to work fixing mine.I soldered new floats on the float arm, they came from an old motorcycle carb, replaced the packing on the throttle shaft with o-rings, cut new ga ...
