  • Value of 1954 NAA
  • I am new to this forum and posted that I have the opportunity to purchase my late
    Father's 1954 NAA from the family that bought it in 1972. It is in pretty rough shape
    and was semi-abandoned in a field in 2015. I am told it is now running but the
    exterior is still pretty rough. It is located in Ohio and I will have to trailer it to Virginia. I have no idea of its current value or what would be a reasonable offer.
    Any ideas would be much appreciated. I can send photos taken in 2015 by email. (I had no luck with photobucket.)

    Thanks,
    Larry

  • Larry,

    Imgur is fairly easy to use. Should you need it, there is a write up in the How-To's under miscellaneous on using it. Not real complete but will get you started.

    Good Luck,

    Jack

  • Remember the commercials that listed how much a bunch of things cost, then ended w/something like "Time w/family - priceless!"?
    I looked quite a while for a Jubilee I could afford. Finally found one for $1000. I have replaced/repaired almost everything except the engine (it was good)& still have the tinwork & painting to do, & still think it has been a good investment! All this because I wanted a tractor like what Dad had!
    My point? This is Dad's tractor, so fair price can only be decided by you!

  • HiYa Larry-
    Resale value on these old N's depends on several factors. The condition of the engine, hydraulics, electrical, tires, fuel, and other systems are critical. If by 'rough' you mean the sheet metal has a lot of surface rust, that can remedied but if obvious cancerous beyond repair, that can be an expensive fix. If the block has cracks or did and has been welded, that deters from its value automatically. Weather checked tire s can be an expensive fix to replace. If the engine hasn't been rebuilt in a long time, that is an important detail to consider too. How does it run now? Smoke? Burning oil? Low compression? Ditto for the hydraulic, fuel, and electrical systems. What did the tractor sell for originally? By the way, Photo-broke-it no longer has FREE photo sharing unless you pay $400 per year to subscribe to their premium account -it was changed back in June, 2017. Try IMGUR for your photos...
