Saw two go this spring on family auctions. One went $2800, other I let go at $1500. Would have bought either for resale only- figured they'd be worth about $1900. Sheetmetal and tires good on each, good runners, etc. Both wide front, original or fair paint.

There is a lot of difference in WD-45's. A late model with factory power steering & 14.9's on factory 13 in rims, etc. is just more tractor than the earlier ones. And watch out, people try to pass off old straight WD's as 45's. Saw one pictured for sale on the computer within last couple of days-listed as a 45 & it DEFINITELY was an older WD. Less stroke(SMALLER engine), a lot less power, different tranny-no synchro mesh, different manifold, etc. When I was young, we had a good WD & a late 45. We called one the little tractor, the other the big tractor. That much difference!

If you are talking about the one on ebay, it shouldnt go more than 1500, but probably will go around 2000-2300. Theres better tractors for that kind of $. WD 45 are high on ebay, much better finding one local for sale or local auction. I've seen descent WF WD 45' go for as little as 750 and narrow go for as low as 500. Those are both great prices for a good runner, you can get new tires for 150 a piece for rears here, but if you have to get into the motor, hydraulics, you can add up alot fast, even if you do most of the work yourself. You can paint and decals for under a 100.
Never look at tires and paint, always check all the mechanical first, then tires. Ignition is a big one too, questions are free, so definately ask as many as you can think of now! Good luck, and if you get it, hope you are happy! Shane

a 45 would have to be awfull nice to be worth $2000. Not that it couldnt bring that at an auction, but its probably not worth that. You can buy a decent D17 for $2500.

If a decent D-17 is $2500, then a decent WD-45 should be worth at least $2800!

nothin in my barn but orange either. what a tractor is "worth" is what people are paying. if you think your 45 is worth $3000, o.k., but if i but them for $700. something is wrong.

Where did you come up with something like that???
This is what they go for on a very regular basis around here, for your info, the barns are all orange, all restored. As far as having faith in orange, what does over paying current local auction value have to do with faith?
B, WC, WD, WD with E motor, WD45, D14, D15
All are restored, and were running when purchased. Didnt pay more than 1200 far any.

You can buy a real decent WD-45 at auction in Mo. for 700-900 at farm or consignment auction.

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]
