Sitting at a former AC dealer. Tractor was never sold and had drive shaft removed but has it with it not sure if engine is there. What would this be worth without engine? With engine? Always kept inside.

Can't help on the value but a "new" 920 sounds like a really  interesting find.

Without engine kills the value since they were one off tractors.

I believe that the engine is on a trailer right next to it but can't be sure. The engine would need some work from sitting for so long but I want it BAD!!

I'd be curious to see how this works out for you.  A NOS vintage GT like that is something of legend.

The engine should be a Lombardini 10LD400-2. Parts are hard to get in the states but you can get them. If it has never been run you might luck up and have only minor problems with it. Most any diesel GT will sale for more than $1k. But you might get a heck of a deal. Dont worry about the drive shaft if its missing. Plenty on ebay.

Ive heard of this 920 several times...this being the third forum. No one has yet to buy it so my gut says they want a bundle.

A running unit in great shape (tractor only) can be had from $1300-1700. I have seen them go as high as $2200 with a couple attachments. Even a rough one will usually fetch a grand. I have also seen the engine alone fetch a grand. I wouldnt mind a nos tractor...Id drop something cool in it and have a great machine. I would probably not go hunting for the Lombardini. Too much $, and I would be very careful buying one that doesnt run, unless to part out.

I've only seen one sold in my area. I don't remember much, but I do remember that one of the front wheels was laying on the seat for some reason. I was there because my grandfather wanted the snowblower for his 917. The 920 sold for $750 (I think) and they sold the sold the snowblower with some Simplicity (maybe 4200 series?) that was way to small to run it (I thought the idea of the blower on that tractor was kind of funny). I think the about the only things we got that day were some 5 gallon oil cans, one of which was a Ford that I added to my collection.

Two weeks ago at a local farm auction I watched a Simplicity 7790 in pretty poor shape bring $520. The thing had no steering wheel, the motor was stripped down to the block, all four tires were rotted and off the beads, no attachments and the lift parts were all gone. It had no doubt sat outside for a long time with the hood off, the motor was full of rust and water. It wouldn't even roll, all four wheels seemed to be locked up. Yet someone deemed it worth taking home at $520 plus a buyers premium and sales tax.
