Postby Kirk-NJ » Thu Feb 25, 2016 6:09 am

Seen this on CL this morning. Must say it's different to say the least.

That tractor has been on Craigslist numerous times. It will probably continue to be listed until the seller realizes he is asking three times what the tractor is worth.

I have also seen this tractor advertised in several different places. willing to bet it would have a good home if it was still RED.

It was dipped (hydrographics), not painted! What they don't realize is that dipping doesn't add near that much to the value. Although there are lots of people out there who believe new paint is worth way more than it really is too!!

The incomplete TC, just dangling out there in midair, along with other lack of attention to detail make one wonder how much of a 'restoration' took place. Either way, their efforts did not contribute much to the value of this tractor in my opinion.

From the looks of the sediment bowl the tank wasn't restored.

Not with that price tag, unless the rims and hood were gold plated.

Same guy makes some pretty lofty claims with respect to his solar powered tractor too:
