Here's the one Dean was talking about after I did a little cosmetic work and added a few extras. The front weight box and 8 foot back blade topped it off.

I purchased this diesel in 2013 for $1,850 from the local dealer. It needed an immense amount of work, but was a good deal. Around here the gassers will fetch $3k+ and the diesels at least a grand more to start.

Just to keep things in perspective, I bought this at live estate auction last year for $1400. Granted, it was an exceptional buy but in Missouri they aren't bringing the money like they did fifteen years ago.

You have a good eye. I misses the select o speed metal, but I believe you are correct.

I was browsing CraigsList right after reading about your 961 and found this one for sale in the Atlanta area. Not mine: https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/grd/d/dacula-ford-tractor/7067652376.html

It appears that the sheet metal below the steering wheel came from a SOS tractor. This suggests that the tractor is a marriage. If done with attention to detail this is not a problem. It is a 5 speed transmission, but from a picture there is no way to tell if the tractor has live PTO. If I were buying, I would look further if it does not have live PTO. Check the rims carefully for condition/rust, they are available but expensive to deal with. These look to have been spray can painted, but at least the fellow masked off the tire. A remote hydraulic valve adds a few hundred dollars to the value of the tractor.
I see a new starter and a painted oil filter. I'm not impressed with the painted (spray canned) oil filter as that suggests lack of attention to detail, but whatever. Alternator is painted also.
You wonder about a value - somewhere between $2500 and $4500 depending on specifics of transmission, condition of the engine, 3pt condition, presence of an original drawbar, remote hydraulic valve, tire condition (the rear in the pict appears to be chewed up a bit), etc.

In my area, NF 961s with decent tires and rims and without obvious issues, sell anywhere from $3,000-$4,000, depending upon condition and options.

I sold a mechanically exceptional one with WF that had not been cosmetically restored (aside from sheet metal) a couple of years ago for, IIRC, $4,500.

The one in the photo looks good from the photo but not much is visable, so hard to say. $3,500?

Ain't worth much....few hundred. You should tell me where it is and I will save you the trouble.....lol. Besides it would look awesome in the barn with my ford 960. Sorry I don't have a glamour shot like showcrop! His is truly beautiful.

I appreciate the replies. It s priced right then. I priced my little tractor I rake and tet hay with, and it s gone now. Didn t think the guy would buy it. There s a true jubilee for sale in my town, but a thread I started here proved to me it ll be hard/expensive to add remotes to. I believe I can add remotes to this affordably. I also have a drum mower it ll pull, so I should get more use out of this than the jubilee.

Ford 960s/961s are GREAT for raking hay, as they will turn on a dime.

In these parts about $3500-$4000.
Maybe a bit more - or less depending on the usual factors.
I'd say the wide fronts bring a little more but the cool factor of the NF is becoming more popular - at least it is on this board.

Personally, just for the "cool" factor and the fact that there are probably only 1/8 as many row-crops as standards, they are worth an extra $500-$1000. There are those who believe that a narrow front tractor is going to tip over as soon as you let out the clutch, but these old row crop Fords look much better as NFE.
