Had the loader off of the 1256 this week for repairs - needed a new clutch. Loader work tends to do that to a tractor, another $800 invested in the old girl. Works great now! Anyone have an idea of what this tractor is worth? It has 7200 hours, fresh clutch, TA is out on the low side, new rod and main bearings about 500 hours ago. No rust, no dents, and I think it is the original paint.

I found a place to mount my hourmeter on my H. Not visible from behind, right side, or directly in front of the tractor. Easy to see on the left side and somewhat protected from the elements. I know it's not a first class job, but this tractor is being built to be used.

Got chewed out by my Dad today for spending too much at the local CaseIH dealer. Spent another $200 for parts! Total tally is at $1200 including buying the tractor. Machine shop bill will probably be around $400 and a $140 manifold yet too. YIKES! I hope it mows and rakes hay REALLY good!

Thanks for all the replies!! Dad and I were talking today that we may put sleeves and pistons in the old girl, and a new turbo and keep it around as a 2nd loader tractor. For what it is worth it could be kept and used around the farm.

But If we could get $6000 out of it and keep the loader it would probably go! Have to see if we find a replacement tractor after spring's work.

Thanks again!
Steven

Steven,nice pictures.In my area a 1256 with the TA out would be a $4500-5500 tractor at a sale.With good TA around $6500-7500 tops.

Steven, Nice looking 1256. Around my area it would probably be worth about $5000.00 with the TA out. If you were gonna fix the clutch you might as well have fixed the TA. If the TA was good a dealer would ask at least $8000 for that tractor. Maybe even more with fenders instead of cab. Steve

One of my Hs had a broken hour meter on it. It was mounted on the post which supports the steering bracket and the oil and water temp. gauges. It was mounted high enough to be protected by the hood.

I would say most likely $6500 for the 1256 in these parts. I really don't think the cab hurts the value at all, may actually add to the value. That looks like the Excel cab that was on dad's 1256. Excel made the cab on your tractor for IH, the only differences were the IH version had one more step, white paint and welded rather than bolted panels.

Steven forgot to add I really like that 1256, looks really good for an original tractor, wish dad still had his.

Steve, the 1256 would be worth about $1,500 with the cab, and $6,000 to $7,500 with the ugly IH cab off!! 1256 is a sweet looking tractor, but, with a crappy cab....not much!! Cmore

Steve - At a farm auction, I would think that tractor would bring $5,000 to $8,000. Just a guess, but depends on location probably. Nice photos, thanks for sharing........

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
