They are sharp looking tractors in the sunlight.

 

You don't see too many in Virginia.

"IF" the Plymouth is original, It's a good deal. I'd have to dig out the serial list but only about the first 200 were Plymouths. don't remember what number they started at but I think that's about the top end for them. A decent Plymouth has been going in the 10000 range. Not sure what they are since the economy has taken a crap. The others should bring 3-4000 a piece.

As someone who isn't well versed on farm tractors, are the Plymouth tractors from the automobile company? I'm a Mopar nut but never knew if there was a connection. How are they tied into Silver King?

No connection to the car company, they were more well known in there day for there small locomotives, but produced trucks in the 1910's and made one car which forced the car co. to buy the name from them.  Antique Power did a write up on them a few months ago.

A guy in the local antique club has a Plymouth tractor.  Plymouth is cast into the grille where those say Silver King.  It is not much bigger than a large garden tractor.  I did not know they were that valuable.
