Well, this auction was several weeks ago, I haven't had time to wright about it till today.

WARNING IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH DEPRESSION DO NOT READ :smilewink:

 

This auction was about 10 miles away from me, there were lots of antique tractors, lots and lots of hit & miss engines.

There were also lots of parts, old Cushman Trucksters and lots of other stuff.

I went just for the heck of it, I buy old antique tractors and parts for resell but I knew everything was going to go high so I wasn't expecting to buy anything.

Well the tractors started selling and I bought the first one, it was a restored Oliver 70 with all the sheet metal, the engine was stuck, but I bought it anyway.
I paid $500 which I thought was a really good deal for that tractor in that condition.
I was then out of money and they started selling the rest of the tractors.

They were almost all restored, lots of them had the old steer wheels and they all sold for around $500 to $700 :( .

Luckily there were no scrap guys there, so everything was saved, but I sure wish I had more money :wallbanging: .

Here is a price list of what the tractors sold for.

 

Oliver 70 $500

Farmall Regular $500

Farmall Super A $800

The restored ones (been sitting, had flat tires) sold for around $400 to $500

Those were giveaway prices.  Used to be you couldn't buy one stuck and in pieces for those type of dollars. 

 

The only things that had a close idea of their value was the the JD L and the AC G.  Since when can you buy a Farmall 450 LP with a Fast Hitch for $600?  That is a rare tractor!

 

That Case 190 went for the same price as the rest of the ag tractors!

 

I think the bottom has fallen out of the antique tractor market.

NOT EVERY ONE HAS THE ROOM TO COLLECT BIG TRACTOR'S. FOUR GT'S FOR ONE BIG TRACTOR. I CAN SEE THE MARKET WANING FOR THEM.

 

And the unfortunate un-typed inverse, the GT market continues it's gradual climb.

When I got that Oliver 70 home, I filled the cylinders with Liquid Wrench, then I let it sit for 2 days and the engine loosened up, I rebuilt the carb and it fired right up! It runs and drives great!.

I bet every tractor at that auction would of started right up with a little work and fresh gas.

I really would of liked that Kubota, although it had been sitting a little while I bet it would of been a great mower!

Glad it was a winner for you.
