My nephews wifes grandfather has this 1923 Fordson and he wants sell it. Problem is he doesn't know what he wants for it. He just pulled it out of his old barn and pressure washed it. It is nice looking but isn't the original paint. Steel wheels and all. He says he is not sure he'd take a $1000 for it. It is not running at this time but but cranks over easily. I want it real bad but am sure it's a good buy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Looks identical to the first tractor I ever drove.

The tool boxes in the rear fenders were handy, but their main purpose was to keep the tractor from doing a wheelie and going over backwards.

Almost looks like it has a new fuel tank on it, if you have time and
are mechanically inclined its worth getting it.

If it ain't worth a thousand (between relatives at least), I don't know about you. You'd sure not get much for anything less.

Just a warning. Don't tow the tractor to crank the engine. You risk tearing up
the rear drive which is a bronze worm gear not designed to both push and pull. You've
got to hand crank it, and you will exhaust yourself unless you have it tuned perfectly.
They used to have 6 volt drycell starting batteries in the old days. This was to replace
the magneto while starting. You could probably use a rechargeable batteries from
one of your tools, 6 to 12 volts max. WARNING Don't connect any voltage to the flywheel
magneto, or you will demagnetize it and make it nonfunctioning. Lots of after-market ignition systems were installed, and when the F became the Model N, they had magnetos with impulses, like all the other tractors.
