We all hear stories of someone bought a car went to war they died and now 50 years later they are selling the car. Here is a true story. I am currently in possession of a NOS cadet 125. The Prestone battery was disconnected no gas in tank. It was parked and never used. The plastic cover was still on the seat. The tires were flat but pumped up and holding air. I have the receipt and all the original documents. I changed the oil, put a new in a new battery and gas and it fired up. It is a truly a museum piece. I'm not looking to sell it yet but how much do you guys think its worth?

You ruined it, should have left it the way you found it(if it truly is nos). Only worth 500.00 now.

I was thinking $20 delivered to New England.

125 Cub Cadet, with mower deck and perhaps other implements - - up to perhaps $400. I just don't see a fantastic value, even if it is/was NOS.

Depends on whom your target audience or buyers turn out to be. I could be wrong about this, but probably not worth much more than a totally refurbished Cub Cadet 125. A good working CC 125 with all the attachments is running about $1100 OBO around here.
In the right circles, a NOS 125 might snatch a higher price, but that would be to a CC collector who placed a higher value on it.

you should never have fired it up

Had to fire it up. Everything around here has to be running. I'll post some pictures tonight.

How did the cylinder head, pipe, and muffler look before you started it? Was it all painted or was it discolored from running? I have always wondered if there was any type of test run as the tractors came off of the line in Louisville or if the Kohlers were tested on a separate engine stand prior to assembly and paint.

The muffler is silver.

That sure is a nice one. I'd like to know what the history is on it, who owned it and why it as never run. One thing that is really interesting to me is the rear work light. That had to be installed by someone after leaving the factory, as it was not even a factory option. The red light on the back panel (under the seat) was the rear light that came with the headlight package. There was not an extra hole in the fender for the work light, so someone had to drill the fender and add the light post and light, then they wired it to the rear red light. Another interesting part to this, by the time the 125 was produced (1967 to 1969) those lights were only used on Cubs, as all other IH tractors had gone to other styles of lights.

The invoice from the dealer shows they installed it.
