I've seen a 1938 WC sitting by the road near me. The sign says $1000 OBO. This machine seems Ok leaks oil (motor and trans well coated) and needs a front gril. Asuming it runs well too, Is that a good price?

Sounds too high for around here- sounds like an average tractor and I would expect 5-800 for it. Front grill?, like the radiator cowling? Mqajor part missing. If it is unstyled- since AC made the change about then, the unstyled had the 'square' gas tank and no grill, styled (by 39) had the round gas tank and the front cowling.

if you are buying to restore it might be o.k. if you are going to use it as a tractor, remember a WC has pto, but probably no hydraulics or lift system, just a pulling unit. IN the midwest you can get a WD for $700-800 if you look long enough. Like he said, depends on how bad you want it.

If it is styled, it needs a grill, if unstyled they don't have a grill. $1000 seems OK if it runs good and everything works I guess. Depends on the area of the country you are in and how bad you want it.

I don't see why you couldn't add a radiator, "shell" hood, gas tank and tank support, bellhousing with holes to bolt the tank support, and maybe some other parts I didn't think of. AC did it so can you if you want to. But why change the look of a great old unstyled tractor, they have character!

Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
