My father past away about a year ago. I don't remember what year dad said his tractor was. My mother is curious as to what it might be worth and what year it it. It still starts and runs it has the hand break and you crank start it. Someone before dad put on a blade with hydralic up and gravity down. That could be taken off pretty easily. It's pretty sound but rusty' its not been kept inside. Any information would be appretiated. Thanks

Dean, the WC is a very good farm tractor. That being said, it is not really a collectors item as would be some of the other series tractors. You normally have a hard time getting $1000. in most parts of the country for a decent WC. Depending on the motor conditions, and you said the paint is poor, you might not get close to that. The blade will help, if you find a farmer that just wants to plow snow. Still would not count on higher price.

Being the first one built in 1937 makes it a bit more interesting...might add to the "value" if you want to sell it but probably not much.

Dan, unfortunatly you don't have a rare tractor that would bring a whole lot of money if sold but that has little to do with it's "value"...at least in my book. My comments are assuming your relationship with your father was a positive one and my apologies if it was not.

Why don't you keep the tractor and restore it as a tribute to your father? You could'nt pick a better tractor than that WC if you've never restored a tractor. As basic as it gets and you can usually find parts pretty easily. There are manuals and even videos available to help you along... Not to mention the vast pool of knowledge made available by the good people who frequent this website. I feel confident in saying that whatever question you might have...no matter how seemingly "dumb"...someone on this site will help you with your problem.

If you have children...restoring a tractor can be a great family bonding project...especially if it was your Dad's. Even running for parts can be a fun expierence if you let be. You don't need many tools and if you louse somethig up...like the paint job...WHO CARES!!!? It's still a pretty good snow plow!

Dean,
According to the archives should be a 1935 vintage. Steve B.

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
