Compared to what you can buy new for $3000, its alot more tractor. The price is high but if you had lots of money and wanted a really good tractor that one would be worth considering. Good Luck, Rick

Another AC/Simplicity guy that thinks he can recoup every penny he probably put into it (insert wrong answer buzzer sound here). AC/Simplicity tractors are awesome machines....to own and keep - or restore if you plan to own it and keep it. I know because I have one. They are not big dollar tractors. They never have been. That tractor will never be worth 3k. Investing money into that tractor to restore is like restoring a 4-door Chevelle. Nice or not, it will always have 2 too many doors.

Yep, people just dont get it...... When you put $$ into fixing up a tractor or restoring it you will never get close to what you put into it if you decide to sell it.

I always wonder why guys paint these then try and pawn them off for what they got into it :wallbanging:

I didnt know they sold crack in Vermont. Its a nice looking tractor, but not $3,000 nice. Did Elvis own it at one time?

 

I wonder what the depreciation is on this one is after you drive it off the showroom floor
