Non running I'd say around $500. Hard to know for sure how good or bad the engine is if it doesn't run

I bought a C with a 5 foot belly mower many years ago for $1200. Mine wasnt near as nice as this one. Mine had bad tires. Junk bucket seat on it. Great little tractors though. They work great for raking hay. Kow Farmer Kurt

Boy that's in nice shape. I just bought a non running B with a belly mower in nice shape like that one and happily paid $1500 and still need to transport it 50 miles. For a not running tractor I look to see what has been done to it. Tires, charging system, paint, stuff like that. It cost $ to do and most folks won't spend much on a pile of junk. Mine has no spark and nasty crap in the fuel tank. I'm thinking I'll be mowing with it within a week of getting it home.

If all it needed was carb I would think it would have one on it and two spares waiting to install. Even a poor running tractor is worth a lot more than a nonrunning tractor. If it were sitting at a well attending estate auction I'm guessing $800 - unless two of the kids started running it up.

Just needs a tune-up or carb work often means needs a major overhaul ! $350 til you hear it run.

The fact it isn't running is big. You don't know how the engine is, or the transmission, hydraulics, (if it has them, think I see the control lever running under the right side of the seat), or anything else. It does have 4 nice looking tires. Not running I wouldn't pay more than I could get in parts. With the good looking sheetmetal, tires, and other parts I would think it would be reasonable to pay up near $1000. Agree, if it only needs a carb why isn't one of the spares on it? Surely just taking apart and cleaning, maybe combining parts of 3 carbs and you could get that one that would at least make it run.

I bought a non-running but turning over C for $500 12 years ago. It needed some work but it was a handy machine once I got it running.

If you're a risk taker, negotiate to buy it as is, where is, at a price that's acceptable to both. As you're taking the risk, not the seller, the price should be pretty darned low. However if you're not a risk taker, somehow, rebuilding his or from some other place, get a rebuilt carburetor. Put it on and thus demonstrate to both you what you're getting, then negotiate. If what he claims is true, expect to pay significantly more

I'd like to know where all these $800 -$1000 buyers are for a non running C? I had a very nice one for sale for two years. Was totally restored, engine overhauled, very nice paint new rear rims. Ran and operated as new. Couldn't even get a phone call about it until the price was dropped to $950 and still took 6 months to sell. From what I have seen Actually sell I wouldn't give much at all for it. Ya it's worth something for sum of parts but for a running/using tractor you would be better off buying one that runs.
