In central USA the H is still used as a work tractor. There are a lot of them out there. Quite a few come up for sale in the local want ads (newspapers) and auctions.

Locally, a running H in decent condition can be purchased for $1000- US dollars.

Just my opinion. The H is not a tractor to purchase to restore to original condition then sell. It's not a money maker. If you are looking for a cheap toy or a work tractor - maybe. It is not a collectors item.

I agree with Eugene, they really look nice restored, especially if they have sentimental value, but are not money makers for restoral. H was one of the most common U.S. tractors made.

I agree John. I see more Hs here on the Internet I think than anything else. I believe it is a "where you live" sort of thing and how much work you have to do for a tractor though. I'm sure there must have been some in my area at one time or another, but I have never once laid my eyes on a real H. Just pictures of them. (saw some at Brandon's house in KY, not here) And I have seen just one M in my lifetime. Around here you stumble on Cubs and Super As just trying to get to the store. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but there are more of them than anything.

I restored an H last summer on full steel for a relative. I don't believe at this time the H is a collectable and would be more of a toy.

Gilles:

I sort of agree with the others on this. In the US the H is a very common tractor and I guess to restore one would be more along the lines of having a really nice toy to play with, but would not be worth a lot as a collectors item.

However, that being said, I have not seen an awful lot of H's here in the maritimes, restored or not.. actually I really only know of maybe a 1/2 dozen. I am not sure how common they are in la belle province... so that would be a determining factor as well.

Either way, it would still be a fun project for one inclined to do so. My buddy Gord Trail has restored his H -- and it is a nice toy to go along side his Super A. I think the H was his father's though...

The only one who can really decide Gilles, is you.. think about it and if you want to get into a large, large project.......

Gilles,

Collectibility or rarity shouldn't really be a factor in selecting a project. This is a hobby, not a profit making venture. The most profitable thing would be to not start at all! Having said all that, the H can be a worthwhile project and you will end up with a rock solid tractor.

Here's Mike when he was still a project... and yes, the paint is IH 2150 w/o hardener.

For the most part, if you are going to restore a Farmall (well), do it for your own enjoyment because you're not going to get your money back. ;)
