Good looking T-63, but too high for me.

This is a 1963 model Bush Hog TRACTOR. It is very rare. It runs great and has a high- low transmission. Tires are original except for the left front. The engine is a 7 1/2 horse power Wisconsin. It has a clutch and bell housing with drive shaft to trans-axle rear end. Engine has never been taken apart, all original. Has been repainted. Has amp. gauge and lights. Also have home made grader blade for it. I also have the owner's repair parts manual that shows an exploded view of the whole tractor. Call 225 778 0790 or 225 937 4920. John L.

Just to play devils advocate, these are the types of tractors I buy because after too many 200 dollar tractors that were just not economical to keep running or to restore, I figured out to buy ones that were well maintained and taken care of, high at first, but waaay cheaper in the long run.

Mike, Your right and it would be cheaper cash wise to buy this and not restore it, but I can't bite off that much right now. I have to buy cheap and put sweat equity into them.

I understand that for sure, If I can't get one of these really great machines it makes me feel almost as good if I can help get them into the hands of guys like you that will take care of them and appreciate them. It seems you feel the same. There is nothing worse than seeing a tractor like this fall into someones hands that will tear it up, sell it for parts, or not take care of it.

Not sure if its really all that high, just too high for those that don't want it bad enough, I go to auctions were these old tractors sell for that much and they are literally rust attached to junk

 Fortunately I have one of that model.    I do have a buddy near Baton Rouge if it had been something I wanted!

Just my 2 cents on these bush hogs. A restored/refreshed v4-7 sold at auction this past fall, down by me, for $750 with a small plow. It was the wrong color and I believe the seat cushions were incorrect as well. This T-63 has been up for sale before. I am pretty sure the serial number is 2014. I only have one that is dated after it and that is 2034. I know the price is high, but you buy one for $300-400 to fix up- repaint it and get it running correctly - what is it worth? I have seen almost zero T-63's pop up for sale in the past 2 years. I paid $300 for mine with a front plow. I have had to rebuild the transaxle. That does not count the cost to go pick it up and bring it home. I think a good refreshed BH tractor should bring for $500-600 and if the paint job is professional with new tires even more. I know of a nice restored D4-10 that sold for $650. I think the buyer got an awesome deal. Personally, I have a hard time paying these type of prices as well. Like many of us BH collectors, I enjoy restoring them and the satisfaction of showing my work. But in areas of the country where they do not come up often for sale, buying a decent tractor you can take to a show for $600 plus or minus, maybe money well spent. Especially if the buyer does not want or have the skills or time to restore one. As I collect more of these tractors, a nicely restored or original at a higher price seems more like the better choice. My time is becoming more valuable as I get older. :-) just my 2 cents. Does not mean I am right, just how my views have evolved on finding, buying, and collecting these tractors.
