A 60-year-old restored tractor will go under the hammer at this weekend’s Laang Vintage Engine Rally.
The fully-restored 1940s McCormick Farmall Super A tractor has been donated by Warrnambool’s Ian Spikin and money raised from the auction and the gate takings will go to South West Healthcare’s palliative care unit in Warrnambool.
Organiser Brian Cockayne said the tractor had been restored by Mr Spikin’s late father Jim.
Comprehensive market research and field testing on a scale rarely seen before on an all-round Case IH tractor has driven the development of the newly-announced Farmall U Pro, a new tractor concept designed by Case IH engineers to meet the requirements of today’s mixed and arable farms.
