Hi all, new to the forums. I'm looking at a 1959 Ford 871 Select O Matic. Has a loader attachment as well. It seems to run well. Had a new head gasket, tune up, and transmission service a year ago. Does need a new front tire, one draw bar, the power steering pump rebuilt, and a battery. Back tires are heavily weather split but have good tread. Hours are unknown. It is being sold for $3700. No visible leaks in the engine.
Does that sound like a reasonable price?
Any significant known problems to this model?
Is it a dependable model?
I'm purchasing my first tractor to maintain 20 acres, and for future horses. Thanks!
