not sure of its scrap value; you say it needs too much work to restore? Some collectors restorers might already have the parts, or need parts from it to restore/revive another; AFAIK brian47(on here) 's dad is into vintage tractors and might be interested...

If its still running hold onto it (if you have the intrest) and tip away at your ease fixing it up or else sell it on to a tractor head internationals are a sought after machine if i remember correctly

Don't scrap it, it's bad enough seeing old VW's being scrapped without seeing old tractors being done too, especially if it's running. You would make as much or probably more selling it to someone anyway.

PM me on some pics I might know someone in Longford interested.

if you don't want it and reckon it's worth say €400 (picking a number out of the air) in pure scrap value then advertise it on donedeal at the scrap value. You get exactly what you would have got for it and someone else gets a restoration project or a collection of donor parts for their other restoration project. Simples...

it saves you the hassle of having to cart it to the merchant too but the downside is you have to deal with the numpty texters: "is she RWD lad?"

if it is going well lift, PTO steering hydraulic's you could get up to 1k pending on the right man that is stuck for them - to re-sell it on , i had a lad looking for stuff for a 444 but its becoming impossible to get old parts-

Youll sell it on done deal if you want rid of it.

I'd be re-negotiating or changing my scrap yard.

i agree with BLZEEDUB, keep it or sell it on donedeal or buy and sell or go to any of your local tractor/heavy plant machine shops and ask can u put of a A4 sheet with your tractor for sale on it.

too many vws etc disappear, with out vintage tractors going as well. over the summer there are loads of vintage rally's on, go to any of them and there will be loads people interested. or just google for the irish vintage clubs
