1971 Allis chalmers, Hydro HB-212

Guys
Just joined.
Have collected a few garden tractors for about 20 years.
I am trying to figure how much some of them are worth, so I can sell them.

What is a 1971 Allis Chalmers Hydrostat worth.
HB 212
Ran when parked , been sitting about 3 years now under our shed. carb started acting up so I shut it down with intentions
of working on it later. I have some pre war cars I need to work on>> and you know, there just is not enough time for everything.

Has a blade on the front, both front and rear drive systems worked well, as did the transmission and engine.
Needs resto and is very original.
How much is it worth, and how much should I ask.
Thanks,
John

I also have 4 Cubs from the 60's I will be requesting info on next.

Welcome!

If everything is in pretty good shape, I would say between $500 - $750 depending on the buyer's interest. If you get it running, perhaps more.

Dee_ Veloper,
Thanks for posting a reply.
In truth, I was thinking $500.
I wanted to make sure before trying to sell it.
I do appreciate your evaluation.
Best regards,
john

Non-running will really hurt your sale price. I would at least throw some gas in and crank it over. most times, if it won't fire, the points just need a quick swipe of something to clean them.

These have declined a bit in recent years, but you're in a good market in IL, so I'm thinking $300-400 is the MAX, and it will take just the right buyer. Hydraulic lift might add $100-150.

I recently sold my HB-212 in great original condition (manual lift). It had rear lift and front and rear OEM lights, which kick in about $150 in value to a collector. I got $375, running and driving. Pretty disappointing, considering about 5 years ago, any nice HB would start around $800-900 and really nice ones were near $1500. We missed that bubble, my friend.

Guys,
Figured out a fair price I believe .
Figure it should be worth $400.00

BTW, the rear draw bar hydraulics all worked also.
Have a bunch of pictures now, if anybody is interested, please email, will send them over.
