Dunno if this is the right section of the forum, or if there is a better place to post? If so, please advise or an admin can move it to where it's supposed to be?

 

Anyhow, we found this in the crawlspace under a house that the family had lived in for over 50 years.

 

All I did was hose it off and wipe it down - it is in as-found condition.

Wow, what a piece.

Mom has a tractor and dump trac wagon like that. I don't think it says "Heavy Duty" on it, but similar and the same color.

Some kid loved that tractor and took care of them. Thanks for sharing the pics

Some of those pedal tractors are worth a lot of money.  I watched one (some older Ertl) sell at an auction locally for nearly $1000.

From the research I did, looking around online, what I concluded was that it's not worth as much as everyone always seems to think (including me!).

 

If you watch Pawn Stars, a while back, a guy came in with the exact same tractor, but no trailer. They paid him $60 for it.

 

I've seen a couple on eBay, and none of them got more than about $200.

 

I've already agreed to sell this one to the landlord for my business, for $250, which I feel is a fair price for something I paid nothing for.
