I am a CASE guy, my wife is an IH woman, makes for a good time. Anyways, a guy at work says he has a 1962 Cub Cadet for sale, with all new tires, rebuilt Kohler 7hp engine and I think he said it had a deck and blade, maybe something else too. It sounds like a restoration in progress but running and driving. He was asking $650 for it. Now, is it worth this much? Is this what they called the "original" cub? I know they built these around a cub farm tractor rear end, so it aught to be bullet proof. I have 27 antique farm tractors as well, 3 of them being her Farmall F-12, C, and SMTA. I have some CASE garden tractors so the Kohler is a breeze for me to work on.

That's a bit high for an Original, I would say about half of that would be good. Is it electric start, and does it have fenders?

If the "something else" is a tiller or any other sought after attachment, your getting close, but I'd say he's a little on the high side.

Condition dependent of course.

The biggest problems with the Originals, are finding some of the attachments for them. They are different than most of the newer ones.

From what I gather from him it has fenders and a set of NOS lights with it as well as all the books. Seems to be a restoration that got interest lost. He also has the paint to finish it.

The fenders will add $100 to the price.

With a set of N.O.S. headlights, a set of fenders, a freshly rebuilt engine, a blade, a deck, and four new tires I would say the price isn't to far outta line for it. If he did the work right what he allready started you're allready half way there.

In my neck of the woods they would be at least twice that.

I was kinda thinking with all the major work done and his $$$ investment it might for an easy project for once :wallbanging: instead of always dragging home junk and totally rebuilding it. Either way it aint coming home to make any money on but for a toy for my wife and hopefully I may get a break from mowing too! :beer:

If you can find a set of fenders for one for $100, I want a set too!

What a tractor is worth really depends on where you are at and what you are willing to pay for it. If it is what your wife wants, then it is just right!
