i bought a b at an auction with rear steel wheels, ive had a few b's before but none with steel,i was told they were the originals, and they had used steel during the war years, because most rubber went for the war. any body know how rare, or if worth anything, or if i got stiffed?

Hi Eric,

If your tractor was a true steel-wheeled version (the steel wheels were not later add-ons), you'll also have the heavy rear hubs with the four cut outs, the wide rear fenders and the taller-than-normal air cleaner. Those were items that were unique to steel-wheeled Bs during the war years. To the right person, such parts are probably worth quite a bit. Search this forum on the term "steel wheels". There were a set not long ago on ebay that went for about a thousand dollars if I recall correctly. That might have included the front steel also. I can't remember.

My '42 B was originally on steel. Dad got rid of the steel as soon as he could in favor of rubber. My B is a working B so steel wheels wouldn't be worth anything at all to me. Quaint but not practical for general purpose use. For collector's show queens however, the situation is different. I wouldn't be in a hurry to get rid of them. Some will pay outrageous prices for things others would just get rid of as scrap iron. The key is to know the difference.

i would say that since you didn't say how much you bid for it and in the mere fact that you bought it it must have been worth it, unless you bought it to resell then you need to find someone that wants it more than you. This is not meant to be sarcastic, its just that things bring different amounts at auctions depending on a whole basketfull of variances such as part of country and if cousins want it. So just enjoy the pleasure of the hunt and the successful capture

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
