Tractor Scouting » DW-1109-ANTQ-SB2
Second: fixer-upper or restored? The buy-in on a restored tractor can be high but it may actually cost less than doing it yourself. Of course, that deprives you of the joys involved in fixing up a tractor, and you have to find a tractor that matches your standards of workmanship and detail. Some just want a “runs-good-looks-bad” beater tractor. The main thing to look for in a “well-used” tractor like this 1957 650 International is completeness. If all the parts are there for rehab, great. Inventory the parts that aren’t, and get an idea of what effort and expense will be required to replace them. A non-runner, but fairly complete, this 650 diesel went for $1,700.
