Can anyone advise a fair price for a CA,runs with original 6v system one new rear one about 50% two new fronts. Sheet mtal good some rust but not beat up. Motor sounds good not smoking. He's asking $1600. Ball park or not?Not sure of year yet.He said 60 but I thought they quit making them in late 50's.

If everything works, and it drives good, even if ya can't beat him down some, ya wouldn't do bad. :cool:
Oh, and make sure the hand clutch works. They get frozen up, and can be a bear. :roll:
Best to leave them disengaged when parking. ;) Not a '60, last production year '58.
There's one on Louisville craigslist about 30 miles from me. It's been cleaned and painted at least.
Says it runs, but needs TLC. asking $1500 firm. TLC covers a very wide range of things. :?

Welllll, the CA's DO have a hand clutch, but they also have a foot clutch. BigDave will correct me, but I'm wanting to say the hand clutch stops forward travel but allows the pto to stay in operation. I've heard it said continual use of the hand clutch for normal stopping isn't good for them, because it only disengages one side of the differential whereas the foot clutch allows all transmission movement to stop. It's not really like the two stage clutches you are used to on the Fords, Ron.
BigDave, chime in here again and tell me what I'm not remembering. It has been more than a decade since my old CA has been out of the shed... :oops: :oops:

Yep, that was one of the two differences, between a C and a CA, the other being a fourth forward gear.
The hand clutch "opens" the right axle at the brake drum when disengaged.

...another 'hole' or two in the head is kinda good for a guy, it lets the sanity seep out a little quicker. See, I just never wanted my coffin to be lined with money anyway, so my goal is to be broke when its my time to vacate this space. :D :D :D

Thanks guys for some insight into the world of CA machines Never was around one much at all but have a hankerin to go look at one that has been setting outside for the last 15 years. Agree with the hole in the head thing and the money thing too:)
Have a great day in Orange land!

Chris

I'm thinking my last dollar should be spent on three chamber pots....one to hold a third of my ashes for each of the kids.... :lol: :lol: :lol: It's gonna be a bit toasty where I'm going anyway, so the ashes will be an appropriate reminder for them to walk the straight and narrow. :D :D :D

Looks like the thread was kinda "hijacked"...sorry :oops: :oops: ...but a straight CA that will take very little to get in good operational shape should be worth around $1500 here in Missouri. Less would be better of course.

After seeing the ad clip on here for the CA, I need to stop and look at that one about 5 miles from here. I did notice that someone had put a bucket over the exhaust:) Maybe it still has some life in it?

Chris
