    no such thing as a 1956 961

    no such thing as a diesel in 1956.

    00 series were model year 55-57

    so a 56 900 series with a dual clutch is a 960

    late 58/59 saw the diesels. and that was right int he 01 series.

    thus you could have a 961 D from then till 62

    non runner?

    have to know more about tires and tins and general condition including engine.

    froze? loose?

    in general.. average machines with stuck engines are 500$. things like new tires and usable good aprts on it will take the value up. so will a loose engine.. or one that runs.

    post pics.. then let us ask you questions.

    in general.. the rowcrops go for a tad les sthan the ag models.

    the range is usually between 500-3500$.

    I have seen 'every bolt turned, 100% returned to new or better quality refurbs go for as high as 8000$

    average runners / lookers go somewhere in the 2xxx$ range usually.

    non running / stcuk/ bad tires and tins... 500$ max.

    burned? 0-135$

    Are those current pictures? Tractor appears to be running with smoke from exhaust. Did he get it going or are those old pics? Looks very nice in photos, like paint was recently touched up.

    real issues? not much. looks good.

    nit pick issues?

    you'll have at least some stuffy pwerson complain about thge paint onthe tires.

    what I do is get flat black paint. pressure wash the tires.. then paint them... makes em look great.

    and you will get someone to whine that the rim was painted on the hub, witht he hub center being rim color and not chassis color. IE.. most people paint the chassis then the rims seperate, then mount the rims, leaving the hubs the chassis color..e tc.

    like i said. minutia...
