Estimated value on the web site - $3500 to $6500. Sounds good to me!

Specs on tractor it looks like a lot of items were of their own manufacture even the carburetor

Mr Hubbard also owned a spring company in Pontiac

I would say that compression is right if not using water injection to prevent pre-ignition on kerosene.

How many of these tractors still exist? Are we talking about the only one or a couple of dozen?

I would think something on the order of ten times the auction estimate is more like it, assuming it's all there. Not even sure how you'd put a value on it besides letting this auction run its course. I've not seen another.

What a GEM !
Glad to know it has survived ,
Almost looks like it has never been outside ?
How many tractors do you know of that have no reverse gear ?
Guess you can only go forward if you own a Pontiac tractor,
