Morning my YT friends. I went to a sale last year of a man that had passed away and his kids were selling off everything. He had a tractor repair shop and sold tractors. They have 5 tractors left that they have tried to sell ever since that big sale but they can't get rid of them. They called me and asked was I interested in buying those they had to go. None of them run and they all are missing parts. Only 1 of the Fords has a hydraulic pump. None of the tires are real good except for 2 tires. They are missing all sorts of things like carbs, alternators, Lift parts fenders some of everything. There's no way to know what shape the motors trans or anything is like and the fact that they haven't got rid of them in a year say's something. I have no clue what to offer them. It's kind of a crab shoot. I took pictures of them so maybe you can give me an idea what to offer. One picture shows some kind of round box on the side of the trans right behind the pto shifter and I don't have a clue what it is. I know it's probably way to cheap but I thought of offering $100.00 a piece for them just to see how bad they want them to go.they aren't worth more than scrap but someone would have to haul them so it would be less that that to buy them.What do you guy's think?

Looks like a special running board with the parking brake.

Were these tractors part of an auction, but no-sale'd? Maybe
the high bid can be found out. At an auction this month, the junkiest
tractor went for $250. [it had a $400 injector pump] Whether to repair, depends on how cheap you work, or if you do it as a pleasure. $1500 for tires, rim work, seat, correct grille or hood. $3000 for engine
repair. Auction price around $4000-$6000. On the other hand, with all
the bother, might make $1,000 parting it out, given enough time for buyers to show up. If I had the time, I'd like to fix it up.

Do you have a complete photo of the first tractor so we could have a better idea what model it is?

2nd tractor appears to be a mid 68/later 3000 gas with power steering and 8 spd trans. Hyd pump mount is rusted and no exhaust pipe makes this a parts donor to me. Power steering and trans are worth something.

3rd tractor has 841 decal on 800 sheet metal, hard for me to say what it is, can't hardly give away a old 4 spd Ford around here so for me it's another parts donor.

4th tractor, don't know anything about a Framall C
5th tractor looks to be a 3600 diesel with pre 68 -000 series louvered hood, oil stain in the grill indicates it's probably a 75/early 76 model with oil bath air cleaner. If the engine's any good this is the one I'd try to fix up to keep or make a dollar from.

You'll have to have a place to store them and be willing to wait to get your money back.

I'd hate to see them go to a scraper but I don't see investing more than a $1000 in the lot.

I think the one 3000 with the louvered hood is actually a 3600.
Again, notice the extra big lugs on the side of the transmission and gear type hyd pump with filter.
I would offer them $1000-$1500 for the pair of them. Swap some parts around and get one good tractor out of the two.

That round box is a transmission parking brake... or rather, the remains of one.
I doubt they'll bite at $100, but for the most part, I'd say you're right about them being scrap value. The one 3000 has a twin stick transmission and p/s, so it's worth a bit more.

Let them give you a price. If they are highly motivated to settle the estate, you may be surprised. You will likely get a better deal as a package.

They show well in the photos. If bought at a reasonable price, you could easily get your money back by parting them out.
