I thought they looked sharp in the 1989 Buyer's Guide when I was 9 years old.

13.6x38's on all 4 corners.... OOH a mudder.... I haven't seen one in person since Ag progress days in about 1983.
If it was in solid shape and in my neighborhood, I'd give $2500-3K for it.

What do you mean by "BGH"?

The 1394 is just an updated 1200, 1210/12 David Brown with fancier sheet metal and a better cab.

How bad is the sheet metal? Cab? Air? Tires? 4wd? Power Shift or Synchro? Hours?

Bad points?
Half the fasteners are metric/ half inch

The paint was poor at best, rust if you look at them funny.

Lucas Electrical system... enough said

Powershifts can be troublesome if not maintained

Case/fiat factory parts are ridiculously expensive, and some stuff just isn't available anymore.

Only 3 main bearings, historically a weak crankshaft, don't lug it and they are fine

Good points...

Easy on fuel

Aftermarket parts are available and cheap for lots of it if you know where to look.

Very agile and maneuverable

Overall a solid tractor. not enough info to give you a fair value. Seen them sell from $800-$10000 in the last year. I have an engine but you are a long way off.

IDK that is what it had on data tag. it is a 4x4 with 13.6-38 tires on the corners and a hydraulic side ditching blade. sheet metal seems pretty good for here and paint faded.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
