Buying grandpa's WD-45

Report to Moderator

My wifes grandfater is in his early eighties and is a retired farmer in northwest Ohio. 1 of the 3 tractors he still has is an Allis WD-45. It's gas, needs paint, been stored inside, tires 70%, complete and in decent shape. It's been little over a year since he last ran it. I'd like to buy it from him before it sits any longer (if he'll let it go) but I'm not sure what it's worth. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help.

These are great tractors, if you can buy it. Then buy a repair manual, and owners manual.

Buy the OPERATOR manual first, then the SERVICE manual. Learn how to operate it before you need to repair it.

I would say about $1500 would be fair to both of you as long as she is not frozen up.

If it was my wifes Grandfather or someone in my family the value to me would definatley be much more than current market value.

Bought a '53 a few years ago with new tires for $1125. Good engine, (replacement, obviously), rest was the most worn out thing I've ever seen. Wide front needed $125 in parts, the rest needed tlc, welding, rebuilding, paint, etc. Now would go for 22-2500. Lots of time and work in it, but would guess if yours has good tin, decent rubber, does not need overhaul, would go 13-1900 as is.........depends on area, etc.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
