What is the value of a Gibson Model D tractor?

Gibson Model D tractors were manufactured for less than 10 years

after the end of WW2. The fact that are many still in daily use

attests to their utility and durability. The simplicity of design

and use of industrial quality components makes repairs simple

compared to other tractors.

The value of a tractor depends on its use, Originality,

Condition, completeness, implements included, upgrades or

accessories location and market conditions. Intended for utility

work around the estate of farm, originality and appearance are of

far less importance (value) than operating condition upgrades,

implements included etc.

The same tractor intended for show or to run in a parade two

three times a year would favor completeness, appearance,

originality, and the ability to run slowly for a few hours.

Value then depends on further information and intentions of the

buyer.

I have paid $50 for an incomplete parts tractor because what was

included was useable. Fifteen years ago I gladly gave $200 for a

model D with 3 rotted tires but otherwise complete. Stuck, yes, but

easily freed up.

It is still in daily use.
