I dont know much about Cub's but looks to be missing the fenders/original seat assembly and was probably made in the 60's not 50's.

Is the deck in working condition?

 

The Cub Cadet (Original) was made from 60-63.

Well I am no expert on cubs but I think hes off by at least 10 years.   I dont think they made any cubs before the early 60's   I would guess its worth somewhere between 3 or 4 hundred bucks if it runs ok.  And that might be on a good day.   Thats about all I would want to put in it.  I am sure some CC guys can inform you much better than I can.

It appears to be a Cub Cadet Original, but they had a 7 HP motor, if it has an 8 HP it has been replaced. The seat has been replaced as well as the wheels and tires. It would be better if you had more pictures.

I would give 200-250 for that in my area. The seat and exhaust are wrong along with some other small things.It should have a hood bird also. If it really has an 8 horse engine that is not correct either. The Original Cub Cadet had a 7 horse Kohler engine. Definitely not a '56 either as the other guys said, 61-63 is when they made them. Looks to be in pretty decent shape other than that. If the deck is in nice condition that would add 50-100 to the price. One thing to check for on the deck would be the cogged belt for the timed blades. If it is loose it will slip and cause the blades to clash. There is no tightener for that belt either and they aren't cheap!!! Another thing to check is where the frame bolts to transmission, the frame is prone to break around the bolt holes.

If you need a blower than that may be the way to go but the Cub, even if messed with, has more potential. It all depends on what you are trading and what you need. A snowblower is a valuable implement if you have a use for one.

Mitch-if you can get the owner to shoot over the SN I can get you the date it was built. For sure it was made between 61 and 63, and it is not a super early one as there is a hole for the creeper option I see. It's value around here with a deck and running shape is ballpark $350-$400 as a guestimate.  The Cub Cub Cadet though will be far easier to locate parts for than the Dynamark will be, and is certainly more valuable fixed up. The "Originals" as they are nicknamed, are becoming a bit harder to find and bring pretty good money restored.  Implements are not too bad to find as well, though the originals not as easy as the rest of the cubbies.

It should be hand stamped on the right side of the tranny.
