Hope it's allowed to post links.  I'm new here, and I'm looking for my first project tractor.

 

I wanted to see if I could get some feedback on this listing that I'm considering.  Not sure of the year, nor if the price is good for this one:

Colors will sell it better, ha! Big tractor steer wheel? Not a real deal to me, but running driving is good. Blade needs diff lift for sure.

ok
the good it looks complete it does look the right engine is in it. no real dents or heavy rust.

the bad, wrong plow, missing the correct lift arm (some hack job on it). needs tires, and to do it right you will have a full resto. the t70 is the most common and I think most popular model. they range in the 250-500 range for that condition. I would say if you get around 300 you did ok

I concur with jabelman. $300 would be about right. If it was turn key and ready to go, maybe $350-$400. Paint doesn't make em run. Good luck an dkeep us posted if you get it! Make an offer. The worst the guy can say is no.

Leonard F. welcome to GTT. Some people have the idea that they are rare and very valuable. There is one locally overpriced for $600.  http://newlondon.cra...5481332924.html  I think that tractor prices will continue to slide this year. Good Luck, Rick

it doesn't really look that bad mostly cosmetic. I would offer 250 275 without the stupid plow setup

Past generational hobby? my good sir, Are you trying to imply, that my hobby is inclined to be that of one, that is pursued by an OLD FART?
