48 Cub at auction

Postby Chuck Melburg » Mon Mar 08, 2004 8:59 pm

Went to an auction this weekend in west central Ill. They sold a 48 Cub that looked like Scruffy the only thing is it had red faded paint, needed the grease cleaned off. suffered from the usual tristed off bolts here and there. the only welds I seen was the hyd lines were brazed. Oh yes it started and ran also. I only went to keep everyone honest to keep someone from stealing it. Boy did I get a surprise Are you ready for this it sold for $3500.00 I guess I should have taken my restored 49!!!!!

The way things go at auctions, your restored one would probably have sold for $1800.

If have it and someone wants it, it isn't worth anything

If I want it and someone has it, it is worth a fortune
