Is this guy out of his mind or was there only one of these made?? Take a look at this listing in ebay. Item number: 230168571271

$6,000 starting bid for a scrap pile. I know one man's trash is another man's treasure and high crops are on the rare side, but this looooks like gouging to me. But on the other hand if nobody bids he will know he priced it too high.

Back in the early 1990's I hauled 24 DCS HIgh Crops from Louisiana. There were two 1940 models that I had. # 4405567 & 4405942, both of these tractors were originally built as DC3 and converted to DCS at the factory. According to the production records that I have, there was in fact only one DCS factory assembled tractor in 1940. If the serial number on the tag and the engine match, in my opinion the 6 Grand price is not out of reason.

I saw that and assumed that it was a typo... One too many zeros maybe?

What a riot, I'll bet someone told him it was rare. I wish I had a dozen of them to sell at that price.

Price is certainly out of whack. The DCS at the Yuma show that I saw sell (more parts tractor than anything else) went for around a tenth of that and I thought it went high.

Hopefully reality will set in. Maybe too much Tabasco there? (isn't New Iberia where that comes from?)

The tractor I got from Yuma (originally came out of Louisiana) had a lot more rust on the lower parts than I was accustomed too as well so I can't imagine what the ebay one looks like.

I guess that chrome strip is worth $5500 or there is gold in the fuel tank I for sure can't see $6000 for this tractor. Does anyone know why the Chrome strip is there.

Early LAs and DCs had the trim on the hood. Should be a 40 or 41.

What's the going rate on that tractor? It seems high--maybe he's including a free restoration and forgot to mention it!!

I looked at it last night; it's sure nothing to brag about. And some of the comments the listing agent put on there-no chance io go look at it as it would violate the owner's privacy. Makes you wonder it it's even legitimate.

Since it is a smaller tractor I will accept $5000.00 for my SC (cash only) - a real bargain!:^)

Now Tom you know even a rare JD in that condition wouldn't bring $6,000. Maybe this is one of those if you pay me $6,000 cash I will refund you this $100,000 cashiers check to help me get frozen money out of my account in Nigeria deals. (<:

Wont be long, a DCS will be $25,000 for a top notch restored tractor or more. There are a small amount of DCS's for sale. Aren't we suposed to believe our rare Case tractors are not in the running to be worth somthing? Bang a common tractor all you want, rare is where the future is at. I have tried to get a 20-40 for 6 years, and have only chased a market that is bigger that me the 7 chances they arrive. [I go higher and always without.] If you want a DCS and have no back up, it may sell. Always a eye cather at a show, and the value will follow. D L.

Don, I hope you are right! I would like to see Case right up there with JD and others in rare tractor prices. It always gives me heart burn when the JD guys in my tractor club crow about how great green is when Case was the front runner in a lot of technological improvements.
