My friend had engine problems, with a broken sleeve, and even though I loaned him one of my tractors so he could get his corn in decided he wanted to get a spare tractor. We found one on CL and hooked my trailer to go get it. It's a late '50, side dizzy, 12V conversion, Great tin and good paint aftermarket grill,no headlights, sherman combo, good tires and hat rims in great shape, tires aren't loaded, draw abr with stablizers, ORC. Starts, runs and drives good, good oil pressure with no smoke.The hydraulics work but are a little slow and will need to be looked at. The price included a nice 5' king cutter bushhog, 5' scraper blade, John Deere #20 dirt scoop, Boom pole, and 5'X8' Trailer that needs a new plywood deck.
My friend didn't dicker with the owner and paid full asking price. $1100. In this economy there are deals to be had but you have to act fast with cash in hand.

1100! With all the stuff? I must say here in the south east they seem to ask $1800 minimum for any N series that is complete and running with mis matched parts, crappy incorrect paint over dents etc with no impliments. I like the N series but they have to be the most commonly overpriced (in this area) vintage tractor out there. That $1100 score of yours with all the stuff is amazing!

WOW!! The ones I've been seeing around here are going for that price and need a ton of work. It could be sitting in a field with only half the tires showing :?
