Isn't worth 38 cents with the information provided. Picture isn't his tractor, ran years ago too.
So is the engine on his tractor free? Are all the panals wheels and rims still there? how is the trans? Set up or freely working?
If the information is correct a running Pony is worth 700.00 but a buggered up piece of junk isn't. I looked at one several years ago with no sheet metal, even the hood was missing and the owner didn't know where it was. It had semi truck tires on it as some one had welded dayton rims to the centers that had been cut to fit. Smoked like a 6 pack a day smoker and the owner wanted $1200 for it. I bought it minus the engine for $10.00 at a auction sale.
Make sure you look at it....I never understood someone posting a pic of a different tractor and says its like theirs. A non-runner can suck up the bucks pretty quick, but at the same time sometimes its the other way. I'd offer 350 (or less) and work up, but only if it is complete, tires holding air AND the motor is NOT stuck.
Nothing grinds your corn faster than a tractor whos engine is a cracked block or im my case cracked piston liners.
Rule number one. if you can't start the engine drop the offer by a bunch.
Don't know the prices on over hualing the little 62 CID but a 260 is about $1200.00 now.
Always interested in regional differences. Ponies are rare in my area and not often for sale. Too many friends and relatives want them since they are apartment sized and I don't think they were ever very common. I do agree about looking an old one over carefully. If the motor won't turn it is not worth more than the scrap price.
