If it has a 068 prefix in serial # it should be preserved as production numbers are very low. A very collectibile tractor if original condition could be reverted. Sorry not a fan of pullers elimatating history.

I agree with you totally, if I was gonna buy one its not gonna be a puller, people always take these old tractors and in my opinion ruin them. I personally think its worth less than a nice original one.

It's worth what someone will pay for it. (I know smart %$##$ answer).
As it is now built as a puller it will depend on your location and what classes / weights it was built to pull in. In other words - more info is needed.

From a puller's point of view, what's been done to the engine? What injector pump is on it? I can tell it's a Roosa-Master, but what head is on it? What's been done to the injectors? It's a beautiful tractor and it's great that you kept all the original parts, I did the same with my UB Diesels, but when you're selling a pulling tractor, original parts don't count LOL

I guess some people would rather see them collect dust in a shed than used.

Not looking to buy, But you asked what it is worth. If you don't give us enough info about the tractor, engine, pump, ect. how do you expect to get an estimate?

Nice looking tractor! Here is a little note for the correct police. I have a low serial number gbd, It runs on starting fluid but has pump problems. Has the big fenders but they are poor, nice hood and grill ect. Tires are black and round. 100% complete. I bought it out of Canada and by the time I paid the shipping I have $2500 in it. If someone wants it for that ill let it go outherwise its going to get an HD800 this winter. I have a massey 95 can use just the same. Tractor is located in north central Iowa. Thanks.
