Actually Denny I have a '47 just like that
Kinda looking for a '49 since I have Ellie a '48
Might as well get sequential.

Ed, I gotta find a trailer for the Cub that is getting expressed to Cecil's

It is cosmetic only and sure looks like a 50 foot paint job on parts of the Cub. But, he is proud of it so who am I to judge
I just won't pay him that much for a '48 when my own '48 only cost me $1,100.00 and I got a plow and trailing harrow as well.
I have $2,000.00 invested in my 3 Cubs. Granny I paid $800.00 for and Jethro .. well he cost me the balance of that 2 grand
.. course he is just a parts cub but the brandy new 9.25x24 tires on the rims and rear wheel weights I figure is really what I paid for
I have no real idea of what I have invested in implements and such .. who is counting .... suffice to say more than double what I have in my Cubs. My big problem is that folks up here typically think that because it is an antique it is worth 2 or 3 times it's actual value. The fact that a couple guys I know have been buying into that price point has made it all the more difficult to buy them at a fair price.

Reasonable price for a runner is anywhere from $1,200.00 to $1,800.00 depending on condition. I am not really interested in many more implements except for the ones I do not have
Cdn and US dollars have been essentially at par over the last year, some fluctuation between $0.95 to $1.05US for a Cdn buck. So .. I really am not concerned these days about the exchange. As far as bringing it into Canada, as long as it hasn't been in a farm field for 6 months it is fine. A good power wash all over and there isn't anything to worry about. The only thing that the Feds and the Provincial Governments want is taxes ... so since there are no duties on used farm equipment and the sales tax is really minimal, I have no problems at the border. We declare everything.
The reason I posted was because I am interested in what others have seen for prices. I already have a want in the classifieds which is where all that should be of course, but I am intrigued by what others think fair/equitable/reasonable pricing would be for Cubs of different years. No trailer queens as there are none of those here and I don't want any.
