    Default Old Ford rusting away

    I Have a Ford 4000 LCG that is basically rusting away. It did run but has not been used for 5 or 6 years. I am not sure of the year, maybe early 70s or so. It has double turf tires in the back ....I have some one interested in buying and so far not willing to give me an specific offer.

    What should I be asking here, any ideas?

    Here are some pictures. I don't know much about the questions you asked, hopefully the pictures will help. Thanks for looking and your advice. I am thinking 500-800 for it, but I really don't know! It is a gas engine.

    That "LCG" means "low center of gravity". And with those dual rear wheels to widen the wheel track, I'd say that tractor probably was used to mow steeply sloped hills and or ditches. See if you can find a model number and serial number for this tractor so we can determine the type of engine, transmission, etc. Or take a closeup photo of the dashboard and of the gear shifter(s) so we can see the instruments and controls, which will help a lot.

    Oops, I see you've already posted a photo of the instrument cluster. Another showing the gear shifters would help.

    SOS shifter shown in photo #2.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Yes it was used to mow horse pastures with a flail mower on my parents farm. It is quite hilly and that little tractor was a nice work horse. I believe it had a previous life as a highway mower.

    I looked for a model number or serial number but could not find it. I really don't have too much more information to give on it. I am not well versed in " tractor speak". I just bought a John Deere 4410 with hydrostatic transmission to use now. It is much easier to use and much more reliable.

    I'm just looking for a ballpark number.....1000 too much? 500 too little?

    Thanks again, sorry I can't help with the questions!

    That's about where you want to be. Since it's been sitting and you have someone who wants it....better jump on it. It's just going to cost more to get it to where someone can use it. You obviously have no interest in it.
    If it runs, it may be worth 1500 or more depending on how many hours it has.

    If you don't want to put the time into getting it running then at least see if you can turn the crankshaft over by hand so you'll know if its frozen up.

    If you can't start it that is the first question a buyer will ask anyway so might as well be prepared to answer it.
