Hi All,

Came across a clean-ish B at the local scrap yard - missing battery box, engine is frozen and think the linkage which runs to the front by the radiator is missing (sorry don't know what called).

Aside from those things, it is relatively clean and straight - aside from little things like fuel lines busted, fogged/broken dials etc.

Anywho, I wanted to make an offer on it, but didn't know how to price.

Any input?

Things to watch out for which make a si.ole restore go from easy to nightware and expense really quick?

Thanks!

One of the scrap yards here get 2.00 pound or more for going out material. They docked seller on tires but you buy them.

$1. a pound is $2000. a ton.......... NOBODY is paying anywhere near that....

If they are paying $100. a ton intake... they might sell for $200. ton out the door.

Your right and if they where paying that every thing that was chained down would be stolen and sold as scrap and even then if you didn't stand guard even the chain would be gone. Shoot when it was up around $300 a ton many things disappeared that was not owned by the person making it disappear

If it's your plan to repair or restore it, you'd most likely be better off money-wise to find one that you can drive, one that runs, all the transmission gears & PTO work. Now, if you're just looking to save it from the cupola, a noble goal, then forge ahead.

Hi Shaun,

I am not sure what you mean by 1.00 pound or 2.00 pound back out the door - but if it means $1 a pound paying for scrap ($2 a pound to buy) then those prices are absurd.

Either way, what the local scrap yard paid is not really my concern - whether he got it for free or paid $4000 for it - I would only offer what the actual logical value of the tractor is worth, no more, no less .

I know some folks (and it happens around here at least) often make offers for stuff when they think they know what the current owner paid (example, well, I know you got it for $100 so I will give you $150) but personally, not my style and will leave that type of haggling to those people.

Anywho - regardless of scrap values - any input on what an AC model B in non-running condition with some issues and frozen motor would be valued around to purchase and save from scrap heap?

Hi lfnel,

Yeah, I agree - and would likely search out a running tractor if it was something I expected to fix up and use.

Regarding the Allis Chalmers, this would likely be something I would pick up to save from scrapping and it would give me a fun project to tinker with and if could restore, great - if not, it is a pretty piece of machinery I would be happy to have here as farm art .

Any input on what you would offer for such a tractor?

Ask the scrap yard what they want for it it may surprise you or make you walk away. My guess is anywhere between $250 and $500 plus the value of the tires would be a fair price, but no bargain.

Paint it up and it might be nice yard art for a decade, until the tires look bad. Steel wheels and gray paint seem to hold up the best to weather.

I'm not current on AC pricing so would hate to hazard a guess.

I would think if there was a place giving a $1 a pound for scrap no one would have any scrap laying around because they would sell it or it would be taken from them

Old is right. Remember that parts are scarce.
