Eldon, I have a 1957 D14, it has been a real work horse for me. It is original condition, I would love to restore, but use it to much, maybe next year. My D14 has no transmission problems but it does seem that many do have problems jumping out of 3rd gear under load. Check this out closely. Seems most D14s I've seen on this sight and others without transmission problems go for $2750 to $3250 give or take. Ones with problems normally have "best offer". I think that this is a very nice tractor.
