Looks like a nice one.  But it dosen't have a tail light.  And isn't that the wrong year for those hub caps?  :driving_big_tractor:

As these tractors become scarcer the price is bound to go up but that's pretty high. Not a tractor you would buy and use at that price. Maybe a collector might offer a decent price.

All I'll say is I have large tractors (two cylinder Deere) I will sell for less than that garden tractor you can't even use.

So what is the actual reasonable value?

I would guess maybe $600..but I know green paint can really increase the value! ;)

so maybe $1,000 tops?

Ok, normally I keep my mouth shut, as I made an oath not to cut apart someone else's tractor finish or restorations, but due to the asking price of this tractor, this guy deserves a little harassment.

 

The tractor is supposedly restored. Since the generator/starter cover and hood are the new aftermarket pieces bought from Deere, they seem to be the only pieces with a nice shinny finish, and that's because they were bought that way from Deere. If the motor was rebuilt with $400.00 worth of new parts, then why wouldn't you paint the finished motor before putting in back on the tractor? And speaking of the tractor, if you are going to paint the tractor, why not paint the whole tractor? The underside of the fenders weren't painted, (ok, not really seen from above) but why not paint the front axle, tie rods, and steering column? Willing to bet the undercarriage isn't painted. Appears that this tractor was just spray bombed without any disassembly. Just too many mistakes for the asking price in my opinion. 

 

Reality asking price? I wouldn't offer more than $700.00, and that's only to help him cover his $400.00 of engine parts, $250.00 for the new hood, and $50.00 for the spray paint.
