    My neighbor ask me to find out what his lawn mower is worth. I don't know why he can't since he knows more about it than I do but in a good neighbor fashion, i'm asking.

    It's a 1958 Gilson riding mower and runs. I haven't even seen it so I have no idea what condition it's in. He said it had a 10 hp motor and I have no idea on the size of blade it has. If anybody has an idea of what something like that MIGHT be worth or knows where to look please let me know.

    Thanks

    Gibson tractor...haven't seen one of those in years.

    As I recall, they were little minature farm style mowers. Tricycle front ends even.
    Red?

    Worth? Probably worth a few dollars for a nice one. I bet you can find sites online
    where they buy/sell/trade antique tractors. If i remember later, I'll look around. But
    it all depends on the condition.
