International 1456

International 4156 4WD tractor

10 posts in this topic

I came across a yellow and white 4156 4WD tractor. It has a cab. It runs good, but I think the guy said it needs some work on the transfer case. I was told that only around 200 of these tractors were made. What is this tractor worth? Is it a high desirable tractor to collect since only around 200 were made? I thought it would be a cool tractor to restore. It's the first one I ever seen in my area. How good are these tractors? I think they had a DT429 engine in them.

Think there were 218 made. There was a post on here ealrier about the 4100's value, was stated that 4800 would be on the high side & 3.000 should be average. Guess it all depends on the overall shape & how much you think it is worth. The fact that only 218 were made should make it worth a little more. Let us know if ya get it, any chance you have some pics you could post on here?

Last spring at a consignment sale a 4156 brought 3600. With a newer 436 motor and 2 spare tires,pto w/3pt,cab . No mecanical weakness anywhere. I was very tempted and thought how nice it would look sitting next to the 4100.

the clucth and transfercase where the weak spots on these tractors.

they are heavy,and very uncomfortable to run.

but they look cool,it would make a nice collector tractor.

I think you guys may be under valuing them a bit. We sold one about 5 years ago to a collector for $7500. It was a very nice and original 4156 from Montana ran real good and was very clean. Saw a nice one at Colfax Tractor in Iowa a few months back that had about 3500 hours showing on it, I was told they were asking $12,000 for it. Might still be there at that price, but the production numbers will carry these tractors up in price! if they are original and in good shape.

BTW

(2) 4100's that sold in east here in last year, one in average to poor shape brought $4200 and a really good one brought $7200

The other rare one is the 4186. There were only 700 of them made. I drove one of them for sale at a local dealer. This one had a 3 point hitch and 1000 RPM PTO. I wasn't attracted to it as a working tractor. It is noisy and visibility is bad for anything except perhaps a field cultivator. The dealer had got stung on it and he was asking too much to sell it off. He had just gone through an expensive brake and seals job. Otherwise they were a tough old tractor.
