Well that explains why there are so many of em. In theory wouldn't that make the 48s the cheapest?

It doesn't seem to work that way....

The age of the tractor doesn’t seem to matter as much anymore. It seems more about the condition of the tractor and what the buyer desires in a tractor. Some like the older round nose tractors (red) and some like some of the features of the square nose tractors. They all have something someone likes. (Even yard art)

I have a 48, serial number 56387. We found it in our neighbors barn and were able to get it and bring it back to life. We actually rebuilt everything except the transmission, rear end, and brakes. We have been using it for 15 years now with only regular maintenance.

I paid 900 for my first cub in full working order and good paint for working tractor. 250 for my 2nd which came with disc plow and sickle mower. Tractor was a basket case I originally bought for parts. Put it back together for 160 or so and now my mower. 700 for my 3rd 48 cub which came with woods 59 mower, cultivator, and blade. Engine was junk. It's going now.
