    Default 1955 Ford 850 Price Check

    A refurbished...almost "restored" '55 Ford 850...12V w/alternator. Work seems well done by a retired farmer who does this as a hobby. Most mechanical systems were taken apart and re-assembled with repair and new parts as necessary. Rings and pistons were left as is...no smoke from breather and 120 compression.

    Assuming near restored (very well "refurbished)...what would you propose as a reasonable price to actually buy at???

    Thanks...Tom R

    Yes, unless there are some extenuating circumstances. Like the 430W John Deere that I restored a few years ago. It had Power steering, quickspread rims, 5 instead 4 speed tranny, dual touch-a-matic lift, last year of production, live pto and on and on. All these options were not on a standard 430W. Ken Sweet
