That thing might be worth $1400.00  But I'm not sure what he wants for it.  Could be 1.4 million I'm not sure.  I would have to peek in the box.    :watch_over_fence:

Anyone else think that the "42 year old" crate looks a bit new?

Would expect some more fading of the wood unless it was in someone's living room the entire time......

That would be a nice tractor to have but if I had $140,000 there are a lot of other things I could spend it on.  Besides, there's no challenge if it doesn't need some repairs or new parts.

Not even any dust on the top of the box! A little too new looking!

one would at least think there would be some 40+ yr old dust on the box? Even stuff sitting in my home gets dust on it.

Even if it was fully legit and there was a perfect NOS tractor in there it's still not even worth close to that. Someone should pose as a respective buyer and throw some Ronson and a match at it. That would be funny.

Did they really ship them in crates like that? Considering you could buy a house for that money in many parts of the country, the price is a wee bit steep!

I'm tickled that I don't live close to you.
