I was just wondering what a YEAR-A-ROUND Cab would have cost back in the day when they were brand new. Does anybody remember?

I'm pretty sure I'm still going to be taking my Y-A-R cab off my '76 1466 to convert it back to an open station, and I was just wondering what I should ask for the cab if I sell it. Mine is straight and clean, has all good glass, a windshield wiper, fan blower and heater, air filter, but no A/C, and no radio installed. It has mounting steps and good working doors on both sides.

I don't suppose it's worth much- $400.00 or $500.00 maybe? I suppose it depends on how bad somebody wants a nice one I guess.

Also- my 1466 has this Y-A-R cab on it and no factory flat top fenders, but as I've previously mentioned, I have already obtained a nice set of factory original fenders for it. The thing is- I have on occasion seen some IH '66 series tractors with a Y-A-R cab AND with the factory flat top fenders still also installed on the tractor. What is the reason for this I wonder? Just a matter of preference I suppose?

I don't like the looks of this cab on my 14' because there is too much vertical open space between the tops of the tires (18.4-38's) and the Y-A-R cabs built-in non-adjustable fenders. It looks goofy to me, as if the tires are too small, where-as the factory flat tops will set much closer to the tops of the tires.

blah blah blah yak yak yak... :P

So anyways, back to the main purpose of my post here.... Does anyone remember the original cost of a brand new Y-A-R cab?

Thanks for reading.

Not a Year A Round but dad bought a new Excel cab for his 1256 in 1970 or 1971 and it seems like it was almost $900 with a heater and blower. AC was added in 1976.

I sold a good one like you have 5 years ago for $400. I think they were in the $2000 range back in the late 1970's.

when i purchased the 856 in fall of 71 it did not have a cab and i traded a old IHC 400 diesel farmall for a new year a round cab installed on the 856. got no fan or heater as i was planning on putting on a Mark IV AC as i did the next spring. I think the cab was $900 and Hugh would put it on for the old 400

I paid $500 for the cab on my 1066 with working AC. That was about 13 years ago. I left the IH factory fenders on for the reasons said before, I like the way they look better and I wanted the extra lighting. But I can't move the rear tires to 30" spacing with them on. IMG_1135__Small_.JPG IMG_8275__Medium_.JPG I bought this other Year A round cab for $300 a year ago. I plan on putting it on my 966 I'll be fixing up soon. (hopefully) It has no heater or AC but I found a complete AC equipped fan housing from a former co worker. IMG_7020__Medium_.JPG

Also a fun '71 Chevelle! And a '40 M to restore when I get time! 966 M&W turbo.

Neighbor put a new Y-a-R cab on His brand new side console 4020-D first winter He had it, tractor was the first side console the local dealer had sold. I guess that would be winter of '68/'69? Installed price was right around $1000 with heater & fan, no A/C.

I'm pretty sure that Deere started using the side console on the '69 models.

Thanks for the replies guys. I just used my new to me 1466 in the field for the first time last night to do some discing attached to my heavy IH 500 disc and it ran great. It was a bit chilly out so it was great having that Y-A-R cab on there. Maybe I should leave it on the tractor. :wacko: I'll have time to decide... I do have 3 other tractors with cabs if it's chilly out, so... it would be nice to convert that 14' back to an open station.

Decisions, decicions....

Incidently, I already notice that this 14' seems to be going through fuel faster than my 1066 or 1086. Glug, glug, glug. Oh well I guess that's to be expected with the bigger DT436 hey?

He got it late in the fall I remember, Maybe a late '68 built tractor considered a '69 model? First time I ran it was chopping cornstalks for a couple hours. It handled the 6 ft Brillion stalk chopper nicely. :D
