I was contacted by a seller of this 155, serial # 961880 to see if I was interested. He had my number from an old WTB ad I had on Craigs.

Of course I am " interested", but do I want to buy it?...I don't know.

Owner says: runs
"runs pretty good. has a tire that loses air but doesnt smoke carb could use cleaning again and retuned, but other then that its a good lil machine."

"the tiller is pretty much junk no shaft all the gears are out of the gear box. the motor is still attach the the casing but it would take a lot of work. the model is a 155 and the serial number is 9618880"

It is a 3 hr drive from me. (one way)

If I do buy it, it is to keep another old Case from rotting away or ending up at the recylers. It would just become part of the "collection".

I don't know anything about these. I have a '74 and a '75 446 and don't even have them rebuilt yet.

No mention of price yet. I asked for photos first. I have an e-mail sent to the owner to see what he wants for it.

I don't really have the spare cash right now. In a few weeks, maybe. I just turned down a good condition H50 blade , J40 deck and sleeve hitch (off of a 220, owner does not want to sell the 220) I don't really need them because I don't have a 200 series.

Right now, discretionary cash is low.
I hate to pass this stuff up though, because Case tractors/parts are few and far between out here. Also, it is a 7 hr round trip to pick them up. because

What do you guys think?

I regard all of the old Colts and Case 100's as being show tractors.

As a collector, I would want that one because it has the optional Hy lift and the Rear PTO c/w FCV for the tiller. You rarely see a 155 equipped that way so to me, that makes it very desirable. I'd even want the old tiller, even if it could not be made to run, at least it could be refurbed for show purposes.

All of the above, said and done....... it all comes down to price.

I agree with everything Tom has said, you can't find a more desirable 155 and considering it was work horse its in very good condition.

I have a 195 that has the optional rear pto, I don't have the tiller it was sold before I acquired the tractor, but the woman that sold it to me told me that her dad rarely used the mower deck - it spent most of its life tilling - its just cool to know how a machine was used and the optional pto tells the story.

That 155 looks in pretty good condition. The optional lift was a bit more common on the 195 than the 155, so you have a pretty rare one there.

As for the 100 series only being show tractors, mine seems quite happy to be on plow duty these days :smile: .

I spoke with the owner today. He is going to be out of town for two weeks. When he gets back, I am going to check it out.

I might actually be working over in his area of the state at that time, which is even better.

He said he does not have it listed anywhere for sale and called me because of my old Craigs ad.

Again, I appreciate all the input from you guys.
