    It might have collector value in some parts of the country. The engine is a relic so finding parts might be a problem. I get tractors like that from free to $50. Examples, good running MF 8.5 for $50, another MF 7 that was supposed to run but had a rod knock for $50, a 65 Cub Cadet for $50 that could run but compression is low. A sears Custom 10 horse with 8 speed and a dozer blade that runs was free to go get it. And the best deal was a Sears 16-6 with tiller and snow blower for $50. It has the 16 horse Onan twin and has been a great tractor, I've probably put over 100 hours on it tilling.

    Once you start saving them, they grow like a dam fungus and people will be dropping them off in your yard. I get several a year from the dump, but more 80s style, not 60s. All but one ran. One cool thing about those older ones, they were built more like a real tractor and have a cast iron rear end, bolt on wheels ect. Some even have a cast iron nose.
