I would like to know what a 8n in fair condition sells for? I'm located in Mississippi. I know it's hard to say without seeing it, I would like to get in the ball park. I'm talking about one that just needs a tune up has fair tires and not all beat up.

Two years ago at the estate auction of a friends dad an all original 8N (forget the year), old paint, wear apparent/well used but running with everything working and okay tires went for $4500. I was stunned, looks of disbelief and shaking heads all around. The draw was that it was all original right down to the 6 volt generator, gauges and tire size and at least two of the people there bidding wanted it... It was no trailer queen.

I went with an 860 Ford. Thinking about a Kubota for lite work around the yard and garden. Actually priced one out the other day.

I sold this one in south Alabama about 6 or 7 weeks ago, got $1800 for it, ran really well and rear tires very good shape. Prices have dropped here last few years, my tractor would have easily brought $2500 a few years ago.

I just sold that rear scoop for $250. Sold 4 tractors and now the implements. I listened to Dean and went orange.

Those old Ford slip pans were the best ones ever made in my opinion with the lever that you could reposition depending on direction you wanted to use it. The ones that require a rope to trip it are aggravating to use..

I look at what I can part out quick and get my money back then go from there.... TARS are the big money maker/equalizer :wink: Lately even worn out tars that are up not flat rims look good from the outside are fetching decent money :shock:
In a nutsheel before I get to deep in it can I throw the towel in and get my money back that's the value to me..

I bought this one in Central AL with a 4 ft boxblade and bushhog for $1000. Guy threw in a disk and most of a 3 point cultivator. Cleaned points, plugs, air cleaner,fuel tank and carb. Charged battery and she's running. Back tires are terrible,but hold air for a day....lol. Box blade and bushhog sold for $600. I got a cheap tractor

There was an 8N listed on a Ford tractor page on facebook the other day.
Average front mount, good paint, average tires. No implements with it.
Seller is asking $2500.
But it won't start. Someone there said it was a $1200-$1500 tractor which I thought was being generous.
A couple of people laid in to the guy who said that. Called him a troll. Said he was badmouthing the tractor, none of his business, etc, etc.
He came back and reminded them that if you cant start it to check it out, how can it be worth $2500? They just beat him up more.
Anyway, I thought about weighing in. Say the $1200 was generous. That none of these old Fords are worth a whole lot anymore. Even the last Fords that were built in the late 90s are old tractors now.
But what the heck. If those folks think they have a gold mine let them have their dream I guess. They'll find out the truth at some point. Or their heirs will.
In the end, I just hope that my old tractors go to someone who will use them.
Run the snot out of them. Use them up before they get scrapped. Because wether we like to hear it or not that's where they'll All end up. Maybe sooner rather than later.

Problem with the WD now is most of the places that made the 3 point upgrade are no longer making them. Pretty sure it got to the point of they just were not selling because of the (as stated) easy credit import compacts.

it's interesting to me that u mention Ns and WDs. i didn't grow up with either, i'm a city boy by birth. but i moved out to the country 30 years ago and i'll never go back. and while i didn't grow up with either, i ended up with one of each.

my WD has an aftermarket 3 point setup on it, and i wouldn't have bought it without it. my lawn has a lot of slope, and i was happy to get off the row crop and start mowing it with the comparatively go-kartesque ford. the thing that came as a shock was how far that same mower wandered around behind the ford. the hitch i have on my WD is very rigid side to side, and the mower tracked faithfully behind the tractor on side slopes.

ended up making my own stabilizer bars for the ford.

since i'm not farming, i really don't see any excuse to upgrade the fleet, unless maybe a small loader for the WD. the ford pulls a finish mower and the WD pulls logs and a brush hog, and they both do their job well.

Plain old running early 8N (front distributor) with so-so tires (they hold air and have some tread left) would be a 800-1,000 dollar tractor here. The Japanese compacts that started showing up around 1980 have more demand on the used market because a lot of them are outfitted with MFWD and power steering. Easy credit has put the compacts within reach or nearly all of whom would buy them. An early 1980's John Deere 850 in average condition with MFWD plus loader is in the 5,000 dollar range so nobody is paying 3,500 dollars for an average 8N anymore.

Don't complain. Look at the tractors that really have no value because they have no use. Can't find implements for a bunch of em and the of folks that collect them, some have died off and others have been forced into assisted living or nursing homes. But and example. AC WD running. 650. With a hard to find rear blade to fit 850. Decent looking Faramll H running decent tires 650. Can't find a plow, or a disk for those because they have no 3 point. And no one is making any non 3 point small implements. So tractors like those have lost even more value than the Fords and TO20/30s.

People tend to collect what they grew up with. The guys who grew up with WD's, H's and N's are getting to be few and far between. Plus there are a lot fewer people who have grown up around tractors sense the 80's farm crisis shut a bunch of farmers down. And those who did grow up around tractors grew up around thousand series Fords. AC hundred series or the 00/10/20 series JD's and 60/06/56/66/86 IH's and that's what they want to collect and restore. So yea, the old tractors of the 40's and 50's have taken a major hit.

I sold a 51 last fall for $2,500 but it was mechanically very good and had a Sherman combination. It would have bought $3,500 10 years ago.

They don't sell well anymore. Most running/operating ones without obvious issues sell for around $1,500.

That sounds about right. Right now this 1951 is listed on my local Craigslist for $1500. Might be able to beat him down a few hundred if you kick the tires, hem and haw, and wave some cash :roll:

Well you got the "in the area" part right.

A running 8N will bounce from 800 or so for a ruff one to 2500 for something super nice. Average tin and paint, runs, 50% or better rubber? 1000-1800 IMO.
