He did a great job restoring that tractor. The asking price is high but I don't think to far out of line for the level of detail he put into it.

Gorgeous! I hope he gets a good offer on that from a collector who will appreciate it and knows what it takes to get a 50yr old tractor into that condition.

What a fantastic resto on that 753.  His ad states he has over 4000.00 into it and it looks like it does.

 

The 2300.00 he is asking, should be very inviting to a WH collector for that quality of work !!

That wheel horse does look great! The sears does too and for that price! I wish I was closer.

I restored a Sears suburban (in the same red and white) had about $1000 in it when i was done, I wish I could of found that custom, it would have saved me a lot of time and $$$
