5 Early Cubs that I really no little about

Guys and gals,
Just was told by the family to get ideas on values for non running old cubs.
102, 127, 129, 149.

They are sitting under a shed awning, cement, not dirt.
Dad had collected an extra engine, cylinder heads, gas tanks, cranks and more

Not sure of what to do?
Which one, if any, would be best to restore?
What are the rough value's of each series?

Need some basics to start with for my family.
Thanks,
John

Without pictures they are worth $25 each or less. The 149 is the best of the bunch but condition is everything and may be worth the least. With pictures they cold be several hundred dollars. Roger

Roger,
thank you for the reply.
I would think a good original koehler block is worth 25.00 by itself.

I do understand what you are saying though, as pics do tell the story.
They are under a canopy attached to a shed as I mentioned,

Sounds like I should just tell my family that it is best to part them all out.
All of thm are 99% complete complete.

I can get some pics, but would need help posting them.
I can send them via email if anybody can help out.

Non running, sat fr a long time tractors don't pull much coin. I won't pay more than a hundred or so for a non runner, depending of course what comes with it. A Kohler K engine that spins over and has compression will usually run with a bit of work. If you could get them running, you will get more for them.

All that said, people just don't seem interested in older stuff these days, unless they are collectors like us. Then again, Cubs are more popular than many brands.

I'd drag or roll them out in the open and take some pictures. If you have a cell phone, you have a camera.

Then use the drag and drop box to load/attach the photos to this posting.

If one is a $$million dollar antique, I want a cut.
