This tractor sold today in Minnesota it was an original owner, low hour tractor, which got me too thinking. Why don"t we see these bargins show up on the Case side of equipment, everytime someone posts a picture of a recent Case find its missing something or this and that don"t work and the tractor seems to have that broke in look, it has me wondering if the truely only thing Rare about a case tractor is finding one that wasn"t ever used ;^) seems to me the 600 or 900 kinda let the air out these two clyinders anyway, would you have ever thought of getting this much for a 1950"s Case Tractor in mint condition does anyone have a pre 1960"s Case tractor like this?

"Where are they?"

Still working....

The green pop N farts all got relegated to museum duty while the Case tractors of that era just kept going, and going, and going.....

Just like the guy I know with the 13 that sat in the shed most of its life. I love those stories. Just dreaming of walking into a abandoned farm, opening the sliding doors, and seeing new machinery in there, sitting there for all those years.

I think the 70 series Case was ahead of JD. Would easily take a 1070 over a 4020. Like most, we like using our right hand, not our left too. Im slightly a fan of the JD, since that what we use on our operation(8000 series). But always thought the 6030 was a sweet tractor.

My dad and I are waiting patiently for a nice lookin early or late 12 or 1370, or a 2294.
I am happy to be apart of the Case family with the ones we have, so I'm not complaining. Very proud of the ones we have. Trying to keep the Case around in my area.
Too much JD and IH.......yawn...........

To quote my Dad "you couldn't run fast enough to give that to me!"I'll stick with the old Case stuff I have.

Those low hr. non molested Case tractors are out there but increasingly harder to find. A good friend and well known collector in this area has a very nice selection of originals. He has been searching for many years though, persistence usually pays off, Rod.

I seen this tractor in one of my local farm papers. This tractor wasn't too far from me as the crow flies. As soon as I seen the auction bill that said ORIGINAL 1 owner hours, I knew someone (sucker) would be all over this tractor. These people are absolutely nuts to spend that kind of money for something that has limited use on today's farms. Just my 2 cents worth.

I don't know the ages of people on here, as I am elatively new to case forum. Remember back when the '64> GTO and SS 396 Chevelle were the only muscle anyone would pay the huge bucks for? Well 20 yrs later a Buick GS Stage II or an Olds 442 W-30 (esp. a '66 w/tri-power) have values higher than the other two. Old station wagons are the hot item right now. Who wuda thunk it? The young collectors have driven the JD 2nd gen tractors out of sight,esp the 4020,4320 and 4520 and the same with their IH counterparts. Guess who's next? NOW is the time to get a Case if you don't allready have them. I'm an antique JD guy (2cyl) but when it comes to the '60,s and '70,s tractors, I'll take the Case. The 4020 is a nice refined (by standards back then) tractor but way over rated and further overpriced compared to a Case. A 92 hp 4020 in the field with a 93 hp 970 would open a few eyes, I believe. Bottom line is , get a bargain while it's there to get because the Case will be the next 442 (especially the 1170). This JD guy just bought a '72 Case 970 8 spd one owner, original paint, only 2800 hrs , all new tires and no mech problems for $4400. Same exact 4020 right now you wouldn't touch for less than $15,000! Olds or Buick anyone?? They can stick those mutual funds etc where the sun don't shine. There's a man 70 mi south of me has 65 2 cyl JD,s all in barns. All have new tires and most are good clean originals. He got most of them 15-25 yrs ago. Guess how much interest his "mutual funds" are worth now? Biggest problem is , it's a lot easier to let go of a mutual fund than an old Case or JD. Here's a pic of my ole project from 30 yrs ago. Sold it 5 yrs ago. Hated to see it go but when the money gets high enough and retirement is comming , down the road she goes. Yea it was an original tri-power, 4spd ,posi car. Not gonna tell what they paid , the IRS could be listening in. RB

It's because we're smart enough to not pay $24,000 for a $5000 tractor!

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
