Welcome to GTTalk. I'm no expert on these carts but if it was a genuine JD white cart it may be from the patio series of tractors that were 2 tone white and red, blue, yellow etc. If so, it's probably rare and may be worth a fair bit. You'd be better off leaving it as is. Most collectors would rather do the restoration themselves. If you have a picture of the cart post it for the experts to see.

Leave it the way it is. I wouldn't restore it or repaint it. Original condition, can go for between $300.00 - $400.00. I've seen them go for as high as $600.00 already, but I think that's out rageous. Like Brian said above, show us a picture, and we can give you a better idea as to a good starting point, and we can see the actual condition.

I would also leave it as is, it will make it worth more to a serious JD collector. Does it have a Serial tag on it?

The only thing I would is stop the rust on the tail gate. Nice cart.

After looking at the condition of the cart, I'd say you could go with an asking price of $250.00 - $300.00. The cart doesn't appear to have any rust through, and the tailgate is really not in that bad of shape. The cart is very restorable. Nice cart, and good luck with selling it. I just wish I lived closer, so I could buy it. The wife would have something to say about it, as I already have 6 #80 carts, but I'm getting better at blending pieces in with each other, so that she can't tell what is new or old.
