$ depends a lot on location, condition, etc. Hopefully someone more familiar with Speedex units will check in soon.

What impressed me is this is a 'big' heavy duty old school tractor. There is nothing 'light' about it, and it is not polished and refined, this is a garden tractor designed for work. No Frills...work. The tires are the same size as my Case tractors 8x16 and the stance is a little wider... This is not a 'fast' tractor by any means...I think the top speed is 8 MPH and that is with the 3 speed tranny, mine is the 2 speed and it is 'slower'.Most of the implements did not take 'power' from the engine, with the exception of the deck and snow blower. Rototillers had their own separate engines... This tractor will not win a race in that they are slow heavy machines. Peak output of the Speedex company was 1500 units per year after 1970 until then it was 1000 units a year...when you compare that in number to the 'cub original' you see that the Cub made 20,000 in the first 3 years. so in those 3 years they produced more than the Speedex company did in totality. (Yes, Speedex was in existence since 1949. So you're not going to find one of these on every corner.) Well I've only owned speedexes for about a month now...LOL <that is all I know so far...ha ha ha except now I own a herd of them...

I would offer $500 and go from there.
And, I would also like to say to everything NutCase said.
I LOVE MY SPEEDEX 1631. If I ever come across a decent S24 in my neighborhood, I'll snatch it up in a heartbeat!

NRA...the 1631 is a beast tractor...I have a 1630 and 1632...they are super heavy duty tractors...Congrats!
Isn't the 1632 just a 1631 with hydraulic lift? If so, I wish I had that one!
