I just looked at a non running B-10 Allis Chalmers ( rode hard and put away wet),  with a worn out deck and dozer balde with a bad carb and the guy wants $400.00 for it. He has a Non running Simplicity 725 for $500... and I was wondering the same thing. Michigan prices are high for GTs and implements. (at least around here) Roger.

I figure as long as the new ones keep getting more tin and plastic components on them And they keep jackin up those prices the used ones will go up in price also.  Some list stuff comparing price to new as obviously this guy is doing, something new comparably equipped would likely cost 5 or 7K.  Will he sell it? maybe and likely not as there are so many machines out there that are way cheaper and in similar condition, he's way overpriced for the market in my opinion.

Pretty steep! I find it's hard to sell any 30+ year old GT for 2500$.

Even though the new ones are very expensive so are repairs on the old ones. If you can't or wont do it yourself, you will pay alot for repairs. See alot of them where people bought for fixing up and then had to give up. That is when the price comes down. Good Luck, Rick

 

When my Ford LGT145 was bought new in 1974 it was about $1800. I could have bought a new Chevy C10 for $2600 at that time. The prices now are ten fold. What tractor can you get for $18000. When I was laid off, I was making only 13 times what I was making in 1974. I was a delivery truck driver then, I'm a professional engineer now. Pay has not kept up with inflation.

It's time for the forum to face reality. These older, well built, better built, quality machines are going to escalate in price. If you are not mechanically inclined, you are destined to buy the big box JUNK! If, on the other hand, you or your neighbor, your wife or your sister in-law are mechanically inclined, then buy the machine, invest $500 to $1000 in it an reap the rewards of using it for another 20 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enough of this way to much money for QUALITY, VINTAGE MACHINES.

But. . . but. . . . . It's a C160!!! If I was crazy, out of my mind and just wanted it because - I might give $900-1000. :loosing_it: It's pretty nice, an easy fix up and the weights and all.

Hey how bout that it is a c-160,,, I just glimpsed the first time and thought it was a c-120.  I agree with GP but its the rest of the world that needs convinced,, and when you convince them our cheap little hobby wont be so cheap anymore.  I dont know what it is about used WH's but they sure dont seem to bring alot even in decent shape,,,, well least not like them green and yellow ones  anyways

this really peeves me off, we all know it wont sell at that price but that pricing hurts us collectors, i had been  talking to a guy about buying his c160, its a basket case, but he saw that ad and now thinks his is worth around $1000, i had thought $300 was enough for a non running unit

Lets all be very thankful that one of the major networks  haven't realized that people "YOU AND ME" are into the old real steel tractors..... Look what Barrett Jackson did to the muscle cars.... In 1989 I bought a 1972 chevelle ss, small block 350 ci auto on the collum  for 2500 bucks. At the time that seemed like too much, now tribute cars are demanding 18 to 30 THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!!!! All this insanity is caused by people with more money than brains...Look what America Pickers has done to your local flea market items that were 5 bucks are now 150 because they saw it on T.V. Seem's like the best thing we all can do is keep our little passion a secret from all those fool's. As long as it's not main stream its a good hobby to be in, until then buy what you feel is a deal, hold on it and enjoy it.........you never know, you might have the Hemi Cuda of tractors in the shed right now
