I have what I believe is a "52 Case VAS. It was my grandpa"s. It hasn"t ran in 2 years since my dad died. The pto didn"t work then and the hydraulics were weak too, plus it"s kinda ugly. Is this a rare or valuable tractor? Thanks.

I suspect that $200 would be cheap and $2000 a bit much. In the Photo ads there was one in Conn for $2500 and it was complete and ran good - had ugly paint.

To make sure that it a VAS go the case picture archives and search for a vas pictures. The other clue is that the tractor is and off set steering and what is called drop axles. And the serial tag that should be right at the curve of the dash. It could be considered semi rare. The value is only what somebody is willing to pay for it. They made 1559 of them from 52 to early 54 I beleive. The only thing probably wrong with the pto is that some of gears have been sheared off. That was a very common problem because people used them to do things the weren't meant to do. The hydraulic problem could be three problems. 1. contaminated oil 2. The seals on the ram are old and cruddy. 3. The filter could be clogged.

I've seen photos and I'm 99% sure it's a VAS, I'm only going on 1952 because that's when my mom said grandpa bought it. Who knows if there's some error in memory. I've never seen another one in person, just pictures on the internet. It is offset with a square seat, eagle hitch, pulley wheel, tool box, and handle crank. I'd have to look to find the serial number & I'm not sure the plate is still there. Yes, grandpa "burnt up" the pto digging holes with an auger for a fence probably in the 60's.

We do have a Case International dealer in town 8 miles away but I have no idea on parts availability for something almost 60 years old from a defunct Case product line. Also, I don't' have the funds or time to restore it.

If the opportunity or option came around to sell it at any time I was wondering if I should expect it to bring a couple hundred bucks or if some old guy would go wild at an auction and pay a couple thousand for a broken old uncommon tractor.
