Very cool indeed, but $4500? Maybe half that.

Fairly rare is right, looks like old restro.

Ford did not have any GTs in the early 50's, bit of a slap on the face with that comment, this was not consitered a farm tractor but for special applications such as cultivation and planting, Bolens did the same along with others.

Way too high, 2,500 just for the tractor would be more like it.

well actually the tri-trac are mostly selling for prices above $3000 restored. I've seen several go for more than 3500 in the last yr. One has to take into account that there was only about 3000 of them built and several have died off to restore other ones. The carcass tractors are going for $1200-1500 depending on what left.


If your looking to buy one and the price is high, look it over good and make sure all the correct items are there, like the clutch, as there are no replacement parts, so you have to have another tractor to get one. Also make sure the fuel tank is sound, the screen is over the rope start, and that the tractor hasn't had parts torched off of it, or is full of broken rewelded parts.
