I was just wondering if anyone cared to share their opinion on what a guy could expect to shell out for/get for a 1 cylinder Rumely. I have seen/heard plenty of banter on the 2 cylinder stuff, but not much in the way of the 1 lungers.

Well... Before the Auction Last Weekend I would have geussed you maybe could find one for 50 to 60 K.... But Now I wouldn't Hazard a Guess...????

I could tell you what I paid for mine... Which was Considerably Less.... But that was in about 1989... It isn't the Nicest F but it does the Job...

The F's are becoming more and more sought after and no one is willing to give them up. I know a couple of guys in Ohio who have been looking for another F for years and are willing to spend whatever money is required and they still haven’t been able to buy one.

At this point with the inflation of the hobby, if you find one with good gearing, I would buy it....just buy it now before they get more expensive.

I can't remember, is there one in the Maple Collection that's going this weekend or not? :confused: If so, that will give you an idea of at least what ONE person is willing to pay for an F!

Nope...No F's there

Only 3 "heavy weights" and the rest are the lightweights...

Don't jump all over me..........but I think if you went around the country with $90,000 to spend on an F you'd come home with $90,000.......less expenses....... :(

I'm not sure you could find enough genuine old parts any more to build one.......:confused:

In my opinion fiqure on $125-150K remember there are only about 100 Model F's known to exist. If you find one with a A+ restoration I would value that quite highly as it takes alot of time and cash to handle a big tractor properly.:)

I have a buddy with a real nice F that was offered 100K and he turned that offer down. Best bet is to become friends with someone lucky enough to own one and offer to grease it up and maybe you will be able to slip behind the wheel for a few moments while it is actually running. :rolleyes:

I guess that's not bad odds considering they're creeping up on bein' 100 years old!

We have one rear rim here (imagine that :crazy: )for an F, our coal bin is sitting on it. back in the earlier 90s dad sold its mate along with a set of extensions rims:)rant: ), which i dont think had spokes, to Stoltzfus. He also got our K about that time too. it had Rubber on the wheels. anyone know where it ended up?:shrug:
Dad said the old man thought the rad for that F was around in a bush somewhere on his land, but couldn't remember where:confused: maybe we need to see if we can find it.

Hey Colin, why don't you sell me that rim and let me see if I can find the rest of the parts to build that OilPull, too?! :D I still want to look at buying those rear cleats for a 40 G/S so I can try to put one together out of them....:crazy:
