1955 Farmall Cub

Postby rdennardsr » Thu Apr 23, 2020 5:22 pm

What would a 1955 Farmall Cub with a woods 42" mower be worth. It does run and everything seems to work. Would $2500 be too much to pay ?

Not enough info to say yes or no. Mechanical condition, tires, other equipment, leaks (front/rear main seal, finals, PTO etc) clutch, radiator, hydraulics, you get the picture.

I agree with Stan. Location also means a lot. If it was totally rebuilt and shiny new paint then yes it could be woth that. If it is run of the mill with little or no paint it would be about $1200.00 to $1500.00 around me.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

As said before small parts that are missing can add up quick and a set of tires can easily run you $400. (If you mount them yourself).
I bought my first Cub for $1,200 with a mower and it wasn’t long before I had another $500-$600 into it. Pays to do your homework.

I'd say this is it. That isn't a $2,500 Cub.

If that is it, I'd say closer to $1200-$1500. Looks like the right side was exposed to the weather for quite a while.

Doesn't look like a 55 or a Woods mower.

Ad says Woods mower, picture shows a Bush Hog 412. I'd agree on $1200-1500 if everything said in ad checks out and I had a need for it.

$2500 should get you a very nice, solid working Cub. This one does not meet that criteria.

Mid 49 or earlier hood and dash with a late 50's to early 60's grille.

look like an issue with the seat not level. If it is a 55, and I agree with Barnyardr the sheet metal is not a 55, maybe it was rolled and they used different sheet metal in the fix and did not replace the seat. $1200-1500 my area. Have no experience with that mower

The hood looks like a 55, no oil holes in it. Deck looks pretty rusted out. Better plan on doing a lot of work on this tractor.

A 55 hood did not have the three ribs down each side. The holes may have been filled in or the decal is covering them. The hood has had some extensive repairs as seen by the shortened ribs on the right side as well as lack of paint as opposed to the left side. Perhaps a flat piece of sheet metal was welded in the make the repair. and the holes were not drilled out.

Is that a hydraulic pressure gauge on the hydo system?

Radiator cap? Battery, battery box? Lights? Wheel weights?

Florida, Cubs are higher priced than other areas.

If you are interested in this tractor, take an experienced Cub owner with you to inspect it. Also print out this topic and show to the owner. Owner probably will be insulted.

Agree with other posters, over priced for my area and we haven't even kicked the tires.

Welcome.

Edit. Check the condition of the rear tire rims, left side.
I have an excuse. CRS.
