I have a good running H, 6V and starts fine.

The rear tires have some cracks in them and showing their age, front tires in great shape. At $600 a copy I cant see investing that type of cash.

Was just wondering what value of H's are these days. I believe my deceased dad paid $850 20 yrs back.

If you will get $1200 worth of use and satisfaction out of the tractor before you are done with it, then new rear tires will be a good investment.

As to future value of a Farmall H in ten years, I would look at how the market for 1930's IH F-20 and unstyled John Deere B's have done over the past ten years. The usefulness and collector value of those tractors has dropped as the guys who ran them as kids are now too old to use them or collect them anymore and they are selling off their tractors. More of those tractors are now for sale than there are buyers. Younger (now 50 to 70 years old, LOL) farmers and collectors want what was hot when they were kids, 1960's tractors especially "muscle tractors" are the hot collector market now. Hand start tractors with only four gears and no hydraulics don't interest the new buyers anymore. In ten years the market for 1940's tractors with low pressure non-live hydraulics, no live PTO, no power steering, and no 3 point hitch might follow the trend of the 1930's tractors.

$500 to $1,000 buys an average running H in my area...If its above average $1000-1500...I have seen a few Super H's sell pretty good.

I want to thank all who responded, I have a better idea now on H value, this is a running and light duty occasional worker steadily becoming redundant. Thanks to all

I sold my 1950 H, live hydraulic and new paint to family friend for a grand, have new tires sitting there, sold them for what I have in them.

An "average" H around here is 800 dollars. One that runs without obvious issues, good sheet metal but not new paint, and good but not new tires. A runner would be 600 dollars. IH 31 or Horn (NI) loader add 100 dollars or so. H with near new tires and paint can run 2,000 dollars or more.

I have a '50 H that I put power steering on after mounting a belly mower. One sweet driver now, but don't use the mower much anymore, but still mounted.

A 'plain Jane' H will still bring 8 to 900 dollars. add wide fronts,3 points,fresh paint.... The 'value' goes up.1200 dollars is a lot of money for a 900 dollar tractor. But you cant look at it that way. If it is a good tractor,that you use,and would other wise keep,put the tires on! It's called 'cost of ownership'.If it is simply a tractor you just want to 'flip',then you're right,the cost of tires excedes the value of the tractor.What would an unknown replacement tractor cost? What would an overhaul cost. Would you sell/junk your current tractor if you had to suddenly overhaul it? Probably not.How many old tractors have been junked/scrapped simply it needed new tires?Fix what you already have. In the long run,always the best way to go.I just put 4 new tires on an 8N Ford. Almost a thousand dollars. Lot of money for a tractor I pd $500 for last year. But I use it frequently.I know what it is and probably couldnt replace it for what those tires cost.

If the rest of the tractor is in good shape and needed around the property, I'd consider new tires, as you KNOW the rest of the tractor.

Unfortunately, there seems to be more tractors going out to pasture these days because of the cost of tires and reduced value of the entire unit working against their preservation.

$900 seems to be the magic number for a running H at auction, unless there are two kids fighting over Dad's tractor. Seen one train wreck bring $3800 because the two kids were fighting over it. Of course whichever kid bought it got 1/2 the money back because it was an estate.

An H Farmall can bring 3000, but it would be a trailer queen or have receipts for major engine and trans rebuild. If just a good running H with fair tires, 1200 will usually be enough to buy it. in rough shape or bad tires, 650 to 800. if stuck, scrap price. They made so many there are only a few with (special interest) and they don't have live anything My family owns 4 I think, one is a Super-H, Jim

Well thank you. Have not been in the mix of things in awhile, but I am not surprised there is not much of a shift. This one is far from a trailer queen but the metal is good and straight and mostly as it was in 47. Guess I'll shoot for $1400 and see how beat up I get. Thanks again

1200 spent on a 1400 dollar tractor? Not a bad equation.How much will an unknown replacement cost?Or you simply tired of it and are useing tires as an excuse to get rid of it?Are you willing to spend 2 or 3000 dollars(or more) on a newer replacement?Some food for thought.
