What is this C worth?

Was returning home from town, and seen an Allis C setting for sale along side the road. I stopped and looked at it, but didn't get out of the car, since there wasn't anywhere to park. It has mismatched rear tires, but the left side one is replaced, and looks new. Sheetmetal looks to be in good shape, as in grill, hood, etc. They want $600 for it. Does this sound like a resonable price? I own a WC Allis, and that is about all in the Allis fleet. What are some things to look out for? Thanks for advice!!

Steve has some good points in his checklist. I would add that (not knowing your use, as in acreage to mow, for example) you could spend thousands of $$$$ on a rider and just be able to mow with it. Not pull a plow/spreader/wagon/blade snow, etc. $600 sound like a possible money-maker for you if nothing else.

Al L, I would guess he was not thinking of mowing. I saw that dreamy evel look in his eyes when he hooked my C to the sled at Blufton Indiana. He sure likes those trophys. {:^D

I cant remember which engine show it was but a guy had two tractors with tow bars hooked to the frond wheels somehow. You could fix all your tractors that way and pull a tractor train to the pulls. Every body would remember who you are when ya whipem ina pull. {:^D

Yeah, hooking tractors together would give me a name for people to know me by. What kind of motor work do you have to do so you will have enough power to pull it in the 0-2800 pound class? I figured I would ask you since your C is a heck of a power house!

Sleeves, Pistons, Rings, Reground crankshaft, Head machined to fit pistons, Cam shaft up to new engine specs, and a carb rebuilt to let the right mixture thru.

So if I oversize the pistons, mill the head or put shorter valves in, and bore the main jet, it would have enough power to pull the light classes? Did you pull your C in the 2801-3500 this year?

Pulled at 3200 in the Banet class at New Haven.
I think I got third but went to far to the left and drove into a soft spot. Dick Erwin drove a tractor width to the right of where I went with that To 30 with the step down and put 20 feet on me.

Just ask Dixie ifins I could go and I ain't gots an answer yet. {:^D

I might go if I can get out of bed that early.

Your guess is as good as mine.

If I can't find any one else or any thing else to blame, I will be there.

I think so.

If you go and I aint there ya will get the idea I didn't make it. {:^D

if it runs i would pay $600. if it sets outside and the rubber around the shift lever is bad, it will certainly have some water in the oil. no dip stick, fill is by your left foot on transmission side. 3 drain plugs on bottom. same oil in trans, pto, and steering.---see if front end has any steeering slop, run it around and see if it jumps out of any gear. normally the B-C are o.k. in this area. they were 6 volt positive ground originally. see if it has this, or converted to 12 volt alternator. different tires can be expensive, but if you dont mind the mismatch----------

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
