What do you guys think this is worth as it sits? It doesn't run. I'll ad pictures in a couple minutes.

Actually, not much!   The little 60's & 70's go pretty cheap. I gave $90 for my 60 several years ago with a blown replacement engine:    1969-60  1.jpg

 

My 70 cost me $150 for a tractor & a half:  HPIM2267 - Copy.JPG

 

The problem is, there is no direct replacement engine for them if you want to use the PTO, because of the PTO clutch on the end of the crankshaft.

 

If you're not using the PTO, these little tractors make good project tractors!  My L/60 Custom now has an 8 HP Briggs from an R72 RER:   HPIM0503 - Copy (2) (Custom).JPG

 

70 I has a 12-1/2 HP Briggs from an MTD Yardman:   HPIM2336 (Custom).JPG

 

Both took some frame modifications, but do-able.  ~~  Lowell

The guy wants $150 for this one. Good buy or too high?

Looks fairly complete, hood damage can be repaired (fiberglass, if I can do it, anybody can).  

 

I'd try to get it for a little less, but I guess I'm kind'a tight!

 

Even without the PTO, they make good little towing tractors, easy on/off!   ~~  Lowell

Ive restored a 70 which its pretty much the same tractor, The key thing is the motor, if you want to keep it all original make sure the motor is good, because finding parts is not easy, if you don't mind loosing the pto because of a repower, they make awesome little tractors.

That's not the original engine, original would be black (VH60 Tecumseh).  ~~  Lowell
