Are you guys thinking a range of $150-$200? (higher or lower?)

Much lower.  My thought, $15- if the engine is free.  I have purchased 3 different two wheeled garden tractors with implements; usually a plow and disk and sometimes with sickle bar mower or cultivator.  Paid $20- or less per tractor and attachments.

Ouch! I guess reality hurts. If that's the going rate and it were my tractor to sell I'd rather gift it to someone I know would value and appreciate it more than making $20 bucks. Just my opinion.

Being it runs (right?) it should be worth an easy $100 IMO, even with the wrong engine. From what I've watch around here the DB guys are pretty proud of their stuff, not saying their crazy on the prices, but more than I'd pay (wrong brand). An auction I was at a few years back there was a good dozen DBs, all out of a grove and for the most part complete, that were bringin $100+ each.  $100 -$150 is what I'm going with.

I wouldn't give more than $50 for it.

Ag tires alone would cost at least $250.

So my acquaintance found some more parts for the David Bradley. Here are a few pics.

 

Her email said, "My daughter and I were moving everything of any value down from the upstairs storage today, such as all of the business receipts and came across the DB hood and a hook on cultivator piece, plus some extra pieces that may go with it. Also found this green tractor radiator and ??? heavy metal part. The radiator is a Modine MFG Co, Racine Wis Model AD or AO (couldn't tell) -323T-109. On the bigger heavier part was L520T. I need to clean the pieces a bit to see more, but way too busy today."

And something else for us to ID.

I wonder if the radiator and clutch bell housing is from a "M" JD or a old power unit.

 

Looks like they found some nice attachments and parts forthe DB!

Most David Bradley collectors would probably pass on this one.  It's value would depend on someone who needs parts, such as wheels or someone who wanted a southern cultivator.  Or, someone with a Wards Plow Trac who would want the engine.
