I have the chance to buy a 1918 model d. the man that owned died several years ago and he had owned it some 60 yrs. the tractor ran about 15 years ago and has been shed kept and is in great condition. what would be a fair price for a buyer and seller to work out?

Limited information to give an estimate on price, but that being said I saw one sell a couple years back in good running, partially restored condition for $17000. Whether or not that was market value I don't know, it was an auction and maybe two guys really wanted, or maybe someone got one heck of a deal.

Please, don't come on here looking for prices with such limited information. Fair price is what is agreeable between seller & Buyer. Prices vary greatly on many factors, including location, condition, etc. That said, value on past sales is anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to $50,000 dollars. without seeing it, stated being stored for so long, price is probably at the lower end, as some tractors in extreme cases of Auction envy go way too high for what they "should" be worth.

Please, don"t reply if you have negativity as such. I ask a simple question to folks hoping the may expand my limited information on such a old piece of iron. Hopefully next time I have a simple question again you will reply, you seem to have all the answers.

I'm not being negative, My apologies if you took it that way. We get way too many questions on these lists. I have a model # tractor, what's it worth? If you don't want to give the exact location, perhaps you are in Central Iowa, or Nevada, or Northern Maine, that will drastically affect prices. Now instead of getting your feathers ruffled, use some common sense, add some detail, & perhaps photos. Feel free to look at many responses in the archives of other asking for values, you will find MANY responses are NEED MORE INFORMATION, not Negative-Nancy saying we won't tell.

hmmmm...... no photo, no location, that is literally impossible to give any sort of estimate on value, but I gave you low & High water marks.

I have been a farmer, Collector, Auctioneer, Farm equipment Appraiser, etc. I'm happy to share from known sales results, and refer to Machinery Pete who has the largest known database of auction values.

For your info, the Moline Model "D" is NOT a Minneapolis-Moline Product, but rather of a predecessor company, so many on this list may not be familiar with them, or follow the Moline Plow Co., to know the value. Minneapolis-Moline was formed my a merger of MPC, The Minneapolis Threshing Machine Co., and the Minneapolis Steel & Machinery Co. (aka Twin-City) in 1929.

Did a little more research and it looks like Moline Universal's were made from about 1917-1923. It was Moline Plow Company's only attempt at a tractor.

It is a Moline Universal, built by Moline Plow Company that was one of the companies that formed Minneapolis-Moline later on. I don't know what it is worth but doubt if there are many around in good condition. They are a very interesting tractor and only built for a couple of years. They were one of the first tractors to have electric starting and lights.
