For what its worth, the 195s are about the rarest of the LGT line of Fords. Also, the hardest to find parts for......It should be worth a decent dollar depending as Kenny says how it runs etc

Not running, but not seized....I would probably give $500 for it as is. ....but, thats just me

Keep it. That's exactly what I would do. I love mine. That deck does a nice job on bigger areas. You have the optional wheels and tires.

 

Key switch is easy, standard replacement with an identical unit; I used one out of a newer craftsman lawn mower. 

 

Coils can be expensive, check the fuse and wiring, put a jumper wire from the battery to the coil. You need to verify that the problem is not in the wiring; pto switch/neutral safety switch can cause problems with spark. Also check spark plug wires for corrosion.  I have been told that a Harley Davison coil will work and is about half price of original. 

 

I would love to find another machine; to bad you're so far away.

Welcome to the forum!

It does look rough, so the question is .... Is the running gear in as bad of shape as the sheet metal?  Missing a lot of little things that could be overlooked if the drivetrain is good. With the way prices have been going , and based on what it appears to need ( based on pics and your comments) I would say $500 is a good place to start "as is" . I would try to fix some of the issues and it would fetch a better price.

 They are getting hard to find and even harder in decent condition at a decent price.

I love mine, I put a loader on it ( see avatar) :smilewink:  If you do sell let us know , some of us here might be interested.

Tom

I would like to sell it, and don't have the time to fix it up...I was told from ford farm equipment place to start at $1500 and you guys are saying $500 so I'm really not sure what to do..

Well, there you go; The truth is somewhere in the middle. The question comes down to: How much do I want to mess around with it? Want it gone- go low; don't mind a few tire kickers- go high. You can always come down in price. At $500 and closer, it would be in my yard; $1500 and it would still be in yours.

 

Those are nice machines fixed up, but if it has any major problems, they are somewhat hard to find parts for and expensive to fix. Why was it parked in the first place?

 

Good luck.

I feel the same. A non-running tractor with flat tires may have lots of issues, cost lots to get going. One running and rolling let's the buyer know the condition of things and is worth more.

I own one and they are hard to work on due to the one off everything is. they only made them 3 years. so do the math. If the Ford equipment place said its worth $1500 ask them how much they would give you for it? that's what it's really worth! Like previously said, you want quick sale or do you want to answer calls for a month? My 2 cents worth.
