I went and looked at a '36 model A yesterday. It looks nice and in nice shape but I just don't know if it's worth it. I was given my great grandpas '51 A in a basket case condition and put it together and had help to get it to run. I'm always looking for another as I love two cylinders but wondering if you guys can give me more info about this one.
Are the wheels on it more valuable than just run of the mill ones? They are flat spoke on the rear and round spoke on the front. He's asking $2000 as is pretty set on it despite not knowing anything about it. Couldn't even tell me that it was an A.
It was the sellers father in laws tractor who bought it new. The FIL had the tank sent off to be lined and painted and sent the carb off to be completely redone. He didn't have a chance to put back together before he died hence the son in law has it. He states he heard it run two years ago. It looks like he has everything for it, carb, tank, hood, etc.
The motor turns over real easy and has decent compression based on rolling it over. Let me know what you guys think.
