Default 1961 Cub Cadet Value

I have found an original 1961 Cub Cadet for sale with blade and no deck. The tractor is said to run and from the one pic I saw it looks to be in really good shape. My question is, what is a fair price for the tractor? I'm not too familiar with garden tractor values... Thank you for your help in advance!

On a Cub Original there are a few things that are looked for to know the value. Serial Number, stamped on right of rear end, lower the better. Does it have the original 7 horse with oil bath air cleaner? Does it have the hood ornament? Is the front of the hood bent or cracked? Is the grill with emblem there and in good shape? Is the frame cracked, look where the frame bolts to the rear end? Does it have fenders? Is the pan under the seat the fenders attach to cracked? Look for extra holes drilled in the steering tower. The more original parts the better.

Original cubs can go for a couple hundred for ones with problems to about a thousand if above problems are not present and in real good shape.

I will be willing to make it easy for ya, Will pick it up for $50 and you won't have to worry about it

Tom,
They have a problem with the frame cracking at the rear axle mount. You can get about any parts you want for them as there is a lot of aftermarket suppliers. My son is restoring his and hopes to have it at Red Power Round Up in Madison WI in July.

Terry,
I'm not sure what you mean there but I am refering to the flanges on the end of the frame,(just in front of the rear end, just in front of the gear shift.) On the originals this is where the frame ends.
