Allis Chalmers Model T-811 value

I looked at a A-C model T-811 today.It has been sitting outside since 2000 and the motor is stuck. The paint surprisingly is still in good shape for sitting outside that long. It has just a 42" mower deck with it. The owner is willing to sell it and he is asking $200.00 for it. I thought that was a little high considering it probably needs a complete overhaul. What do you guys think, is that too much or is he in the ballpark? Any and all opinions appreciated. Thanks. Don Jr.

Usually, it's allot cheaper to replace that style engine (Aluminum Briggs)other than rebuilding. So your probably $400 or so just for that. So now your in this thing for $600. You can pick up an A-C or Simplicity cast iron units that operate for $600 or less sometimes. Much more durable units. There is a Simplicity cast iron engine tractor which owner says will run with minor work on E-Bay right now for $217

I have come to realize that, especially living out west where there aren't many antique garden tractors for sale, that transportation costs can easily outweigh purchase cost if you're not close enough to pick heavy things up yourself. I bought a Wheel Horse in Houston over Ebay for $200 and it cost me probably $350 to get it brought home. I bought a snow blade in Ohio for $100 and paid $267 to have it shipped. I know that doesn't sound very smart, but they were units I really wanted. Guys who are in tractor country can shop around more for a better deal.
