Found a 1942 case sc that will sell at public auction. Don't
know if it runs. I know it hasn't for several years. Tractor is
rough. What's it worth?

Real hard to say with out seeing it and all. Could be $300 up to around $1000. I sold a good running 1952 or 53 SC hand clutch live PTO for $1500. It ran well had good tires and had just had the clutch repaired on it. Paint and decals where also good on my SC

For whatever reason the SC's dont seem to go very high in my experience - have a 42 in great shape - complete with distillate tank good rears, new fronts - paid $1200. Have a 50 SC in great shape incl new paint - runs good, good tires etc that I paid $1500 for back before market dropped.

I have seen good runners complete with decent tires but in need of paint go $700-800. I would have guessed $1000-1200 for a good runner compared to other tractors, but as I said, SC's seem to run low. For a non-runner I would probably not go more than $500-600 - maybe less if rough or in need of tires.

Check to see if motor frozen. Look for cracks, welds, repairs. Check tires and look for rust problems on rims

Good starting point for a rough non-runner would be scrap value in your area - assume about 4000 pounds. Personally I would try to keep it out of scrap heap unless its all cut up or sheetmetal with dead tires, rusted rims, cracked block, etc. But hard to justify on a non-runner.

Thanks for the input. Tractor is setting in barn, paint not bad. It is very dirty, needs good bath. As I said don't know if it runs or not. I've got a 50 DC now was just wanting to get a SC. Again thanks for the info.

If you are not sure that the tractor runs, then it doesn't run. Probably worth about $300 as scrap. The condition of the tires could make it worth more. If you can make it run, it MIGHT be worth more.

If its been stored inside, chances for revival are better. Still rear tires are most expensive item. If they are good and engine free, with no major repairs, I'd go for it.

If it is free but has not run for a while, you could try light oil or WD40 in spark plug holes and clean fuel lines and it may start. New plugs are not a bad idea - Autolite 295 work well for me. Carb and Magneto are most likely issues if it does not start.

But be aware, auction value will increase significantly if you get it running before auction. I would just make sure its free if I wanted it.

best, ed
