I came across an old Case Tractor in S. Alberta with the number A3296A on it. Can anyone tell me anything about this tractor?

Brian gave you the best response but I"ll try to clarify the serial number location.
Stand on the left side of the tractor between the front and rear wheels. If your facing forward then your looking over the top of the front wheel. If you turn 90 degrees your facing the radiator cooling fan and its drive shaft. If you turn another 90 degrees then your facing the engine and rear wheel. Now just lean over a little and scratch around on the casting of the engine block with a jack knife just under the water pump. It may be hard to see at first but it should be there.
As far as value anywhere up to 5K for a parts tractor depending on how much stuff is missing and if its stuck. 5-10K for something complete and may even run. 10-20K for one restored. 20+ for something excellent depending on the goodies. Special wheels. Wheel extensions. Furrow guides. Belt guides. Whistles. Cab and etc just to name a few common options. I may be off on price but others here will say I"m too high and the next guy will say I"m too low so much depends on your location and haggling skills also. The 18-32 is a common cross-motor so not rare by any means but yet not everyone has a chance to buy one so there you go.

You may get more details from the experts, but it is a Case Crossmoter, very collectable, and depending on condition/model possibly very valuable. Anytime you ask a question and someone responds with "where is it, I want to buy it," you can be pretty sure of that. Along that line - I am tired of responses that don't answer the question but instead attempt to take advantage of the situation and get information so they might gain from someone else's find. Predatory at best, down right greedy in my opinion.

dbb62, I agree with you completely. Thank you for saying what needed to be said. My dad always told me to "look with my eyes open and my mouth shut!" I like everyone is looking for that great find but if someone beats me to it then I will respect that. I saw a 970 in the paper last winter in my price range. I called but he told me someone had first chance at it, he called the next morning and told me they had bought it, I was pretty dissapointed. Turns out a good friend bought it, wasn't a real pretty tractor and they had to work on the power shift. A neighbor always tells me things happen for a reason and if they don't go your way it wasn't supposed to and that everything works out in the end. Sorry for getting off the original topic, just wanted to share my thoughts.

If your tired of the responses then don't read them I did not try to undermine him in any way. If he was not interested then where is the harm in asking about it. Now if the moderatoe dosen't like my asking I will gladly never seek more information on this site. Till then --- butt out. By the way I didn't notice you answering his question either. Yes it is a cross motor, what model or year I don't know , do You????? I think if you wanted to check it out you would find I have passed along some very collectable tractors to case friends for little above cost and hauling. A high crop at actually break even , a rare DI fron the case factory (used as factory mule) with factory built wood cab like older L's had with exhaust heater ,windshield wiper all rare factory. Also a D with 3 point come to mind. Gave C rear with fenders to a fellow in colorado. If thats greedy then I'm guilty

I did answer the question to the best of my ability given the available information, which is more than you offered. I stated my opinion and I stand by it. Sorry if it struck a chord...as for butting out - no thanks.

That isn't a serial number. Casting number from somewhere on the tractor. Need more info. Color or better yet, do a search in tractor photos. If gray check on L, R and C for a match. If flambeau check for LA, DC, SC, or VAC. Should give you some idea what it might be. Color would also help to tell you where to look for serial number.

OK, thanks. It was on the radiator. I am not a serious enough tractor person to know that the A3296A was just a casting number. I check for a real serial number the next time I am there.

Based on what I see in your pictures, You have a Case 18-32 Cross motor. They were built from 1925-1929.

The should be a serial number tag riveted to the inside of one of the fenders. If it's missing, then the number, I THINK, is stamped on the frame of the tractor. Look at the photo of you trying to crank the tractor, (Which, by the way, if you were PUSHING on the crank at that angle, you were cranking in the wrong direction.) If you were standing in front of the driver's side left wheel, and facing toward the back on the tractor, you look directly behind the front wheel. There should be a serial number stamped on the edge of the frame, on the portion that runs PARALLEL with the engine block. (At least that was where I find the SN stamped on my tractor.)

If you find the serial number, post it here, and I, or someone, can look the year of manufacture up for you.

That tractor looks like it's in great shape, but you didn't mention if it was in running condition or not.

Thanks for the info. I obviously know nothing about tractors. I just saw it in a field and got curious. It is certainly not in running condition!

As the other poster said its a Cross-motor tractor, if all there could be more valuable. Are you buying it? If so there are folks who can tell you what to look for. I don't know much about cross-motors.
