I have inherited a 57 Case 300B tractor with a bucket on it. It has not been run in years but did run fine when parked. I wish to sell it but have no idea of its value. I've been told $2500.00 but need input from someone who really knows. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank you

How's the sheet metal and tires?

The "B" series 300 didn't start until 1958. If it's a roundnose 300 series, it's not a "B". If it's the square-nosed 300, it's not a '57. Overall condition is a must see for evaluating a machine's worth. Like has already been said, tires, tin, functionality, and 'extras' add considerably to a tractors value, as well as location.A picture will do wonders to get you in the ballpark.

Tom, that figure is subjective. How are the tires? How is the paint and sheetmetal? Oil leaks? Whats missing? How many places welded and where are they? Everything work like it should? Not running even if the engine is loose subtracts from the value. Are you in Case country, or Farmall, John Deere land?

Pics would help to get started.

Tom

There is too many variables unanswered to give you a definitive answer. Pictures would help.

Does it not run because the engine is stuck? Does it have a gas or diesel engine? What is the condition of the tires and rims. What is the condition of the tin and fenders? Do any of the gauges in the cluster work? Does it have an eagle hitch and/or PTO. Power steering? Does the radiator hold water? Is the grill frame intact or broken/absent. Where is it located? What are the model and serial numbers on the tag (below the cluster, on the right side of the dash)?

It would need to be in very good original condition to reach $2500 IMHO. If the engine is stuck and the tires are marginal, it could be worth less than $1000. - Joe

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Lead Substitutes - by Mike Schordine. Lead was oriinally added to gasoline as an upper cylinder lubricant. It lubes the valves and seats. If you rebuild the motor, you could use hardened seats and valves, and unleaded fuel. But if your old tractor runs good, a simple lead substitute added to the gas is a perfectly reasonable solution. And, if you are like me, your tractor is under cover, but it sits outside. So with every temperature change, the humidity in the air collects in the fuel tank, in the form of water. ...
