Hello everyone,

I've come across the following and I'm trying to research it a bit and see if the deal is reasonable:

1945 Farmall A Cultivision
Sicklebar mower
Barshear plow
Cultivator
4 foot tag along brush hog

To a novice like myself, it looks like new, with sharp paint and tires. Either its been totally restored, or its been babied for a very long time.
The owner lives by my work, so I've seen that he keeps it in his garage. He's asking $3800 for the lot, but frankly I know nothing about antique tractors and values, and have no idea whether this is in the ballpark or not, and what questions I should be asking. I've found a few classifieds, but nothing to help a novice estimate the lot.

Workwise, I have a seven acre tract that I wish to clear and keep in check, and my love of "old stuff" simply likes the looks of it.

I would welcome insight from this group, and any advice is appreciated.

Thanks for your time,
tom

Check compression with a gauge. >10% variance between cylinders in compression and/or oil leaks mean an overhaul in your near future. Ask questions about shortcomings tactfully, and start at 70% of asking price. If he caves at 3K on a good tractor hes got his money and then some. good luck.

That would be just a little high for here in East Tennessee - 'bout $3000 would be right for here.

I would say that was a really good deal as long as the tractor ran and had a good paint job on it some people would ask 3,000 just for the tractor alone. So I think it would be a good investment especially with implements.
