Any idea what year this thing is?  I also need some rough value as I just plan on selling the thing as is due to not having time to restore.   The money will be given back to my mother in-law as it was buried in her shed.

 

Please see pictures attached.

Value is tough to figure. It depends on if your using the US model or the European model. :D

Pretty nice Ride-A-Matic.  I wish I could find one like that in my shed...

Someone here will scoop this up!  I would like too, and fairly close too, but broke this fall!  Mama says I can't get it, no matter HOW Close it was! :smilewink:  Looks real complete!

It's a 1961. Looks to be in good condition overall and appears to be complete. Location can be a huge factor on value.

Thats a nice machine, looks like its lived inside most of its life and was well cared for and not abused, its getting harder to find them in this unmolested condition

Thanks for the info.   I have posted this for sale in the tractor section - located in Columbus, Indiana.   Give me a reasonable price, and it is yours.   Do it soon though as I have been told to get it running and it will be worth more...LOL!

Do you use facebook? I have a Bolens group there with over 2200 members. Would be another good place to find a buyer.  Paul

That is a nice RAM! I bought 2 more ( 1960 and ? ) of these. one 99% restored and good original one with nice options on both. Now I have 7 of these. Too bad I can't work on them for 6months, as I broke my hip loading them up in New Hampshire! I'll be home soon.
