Roadless Value

Postby Richardhrw » Sun Sep 09, 2018 10:42 am

Hi guys ,

I have been offered a nice Super Major Roadless 4wd. It runs and is all there, it does need some love though and is abit rough, electrics are bodged , one small hole in nose cone and clearly not been used in a while.

What sort of value would you place on a tractor like this ? Obviously photos would help but sorry I dont have any !

Ive looked at old auction results and simular ones seem to go for about 4-6k. Restored ones appear to be clioser to £10k !

Thanks

Richard

Here I know one of about 4000 that doesn't get sold yet.
My ideaa is that, depending on condition 5000 is the maximum. In my opinion if it's a late 63-64 super it's even worth a little more.

greetings.

it's in fair condition, as far as I could see. I didn't hear it running or so.

In the UK a genuine Roadless (not a Selene) will fetch 5-6k rough/running but needing work, more if a new performance. A really good original or very well restored will be over 10k. One sold at auction recently in restored condition for 12k (H J Pugh auctioneers).
A full front axle rebuild can set you back 3k+ these days, half shaft assemblies are £500/side so really worth checking condition out. Watch out on new performance as theres a few been made up from earlier bits but the new performance came with 2 different diff ratios and I've seen more than one which was married to the wrong ratio backend.

So Ive been back to look at it and its been dragged out the stinging nettles. The tractor is actually not that bad - needs cleaning off and an oily rag etc. Its in better condition than my other major which gets used regualrry !

However... from looking around mainly on here.. this thread for example
viewtopic.php?p=6060

It seems it is a Selene not a Roadless ? Basically it says Manual on the diff but not Manual Roadless and the oil fill is to the right. I cant upload a pic but it looks identical to the axel and trnasfer box in this picture...but its a super mjaor not a power major.

Can anyone help me with this - is this is a Selene or a Roadless , and if the former is it worth less ?

Richard,

I have no idea if a Selene is less worth then a roadless. A 4wd major is always nice to have.
The box between rear axle and gearbox is like a thick metal plate on a Selene. The box of a roadless is bigger and will make your tractor a little longer.
Good luck!
