I can't seem to find the exact mower you are asking about. However, there are other vintage mowers similar to yours that are selling for around $60 yo $150. If the mower is restored you can get a higher asking price for the mower.

There is one on Pinterest that shows it as red and green:

As to value, that is very regional, so my suggestion is to talk to your local feed store or local hardware store of if you are lucky enough to have an antique/vintage shop that deals in garden items, talk to them about how much it would cost to buy a fully restored version in your town.

That will be retail and you can expect to get a little less than retail if you are selling it on your own.

Post back what you learn and where you are located so we can all learn regional values! Thanks for asking.

You may have already posted it on this site (see link below) and got your answer that it is an early 1950s version), as it looks like an exact match to yours...

Below is a neat site that has a lot of Sears/Craftsman history:

todaysmower.com/.../

So many of their products are still around it is amazing...it is good if you are using them, but bad for value as supply is high and demand, not always high...so as for value...I would just keep an eye on the SOLD auctions on eBay and other online sites matching your exact item to the exact item sold.

You can find sold auctions by clicking the sold button on your screen (completed + sold). I don't see an exact match for yours today, but the market changes hourly, so keep checking back!

NEVER use asking price to determine value, as people can ask the world, value in today's market is only what people will ACTUALLY PAY for an item!

I love the color! Thanks for sharing!

It looks like a 1953 or 54 model because the earlier engines had fill for tank in the center. The 131 of the model number denotes it was built by Rally/Roper, the company which later joined American Yard Products, which is now owned by Husqvarna.

Would you know the value of something like this? It's all original and shouldn't take much to get going. I recently found it in an old barn I purchased. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I can not find the exact mower you have pictured here. In order to quote you a fair price for the item it is difficult because it seems nobody has one listed or there are no images of this mower I can find. In order to understand what you have found and what it is worth you will need to visit a lawnmower forum that specializes in these types of mowers to find out more about this mower.

Here are a few forums that you can register on and post this image. You may even be able to sell this mower there to a collector. It is a very unique mower and I am sure there will be a few people interested in this mower.

It appears that nobody wants to sell this mower. I can find a few videos of the mower running on YouTube. However, everyone who owns this mower isn't selling them. I would suggest that you contact an antique mower dealer in your area.

He will be able to give you an idea of the selling price. Just remember dealers will give you the lowest price possible. You can take his price and add 25 to 50 percent to find the price you can sell your mower at. Hope this helps.

These are popular machines and that you have original pieces is great!!

Right now there are none sold on eBay to give you the global or regional market value of them. I find the most accurate way to value things is to use eBay sold. That tells me exactly what someone is willing to pay for something...which is today's current market value.

Never us asking price to value as people can ask what they want and only sold tells you what someone is willing to pay.

The challenge with the lawn tractors is they are almost always sold as local pick up so you will only be seeing the price for where the person listed it...where you are it may be higher or lower based on supply and demand.

Maybe someone on one of the websites below can give you more insight on values in your area:

www.thefarmclub.org/.../rolke.asp

Most on this site are generalists and know our specific areas of interest and values in the cities where we are.

This last site is specifically devoted to tractor sales and there is a Cub on there with the phone number of the seller....so if he is in your area maybe he can give you a feel for your town's price threshold.

If you want to sell the mover to make a bit of a profit, I would sell it locally at an antique store. This way you do not have to worry about shipping and handling costs. You should be able to get around $250 or so for the mower.
