Tractor looks nice but the missing decals are a real turn off for me. I don't doubt your work but it looks incomplete and lacks the curb appeal of a fully dressed RF. How is the engine and transaxle?

If it were mine to sell, I'd list it for $450.00. As a restorer's point of view, I can't spend more than $250.00 for a tractor that would require a complete restoration, but if the tractor is in good original condition, with no motor or transmission work required, then I'd consider spending a little more, since I don't have to put much into it. Anything more than $250.00 for a tractor needing help, will be a loss when trying to resell, since a restoration can cost an additional $800.00 - $1,000.00 easy.
In your case though, if the tractor is only needing hood decals, a good cleaning and waxing, then I think you'd be in the ballpark starting at $450.00, if it won't cost you a loss. I don't know what kind of monies you already have into the tractor for repairs and paint, so you will need to determine just how much you really need out of it. This is just my opinion, and how I look at things from both a collector and restorer's point of view. I'm mostly in the collecting end, and don't sell a lot of tractors, so take my opinion for what's it's worth.
Good luck with selling it, and hope you can make some money off of it.

Its not a rattle can paint job and everything that was wrong with it was fixed if that's what you mean. I'm more of a Cub Cadet guy myself that's why I'm selling it. I don't call my tractors restored because I don't think I'm that good yet. But its not poor by any means.
Hi LTD, re-read my previous reply and I wanted to highlight that it looks like you did a great job on the refurbishment of this 110. Doing this this work, takes a lot of effort and deserves appreciation. I wrote my reply post in a hurry with my "Critical Evaluation" cap on and neglected to take the time to say what a good job you did.
- LTD said thank you

The hot years of the RF's are the 63's and 64's with all their quirks. The 65-67 tractors are all pretty much the same other than the 67's foot boards are welded on v/s the bolted on boards of the 65-66's. If it had a hydraulic lift that would add to desirability.
If it was a 1966 112 than you would have a goldmine on your hands...
