Sale prices for old Farmalls surprising

Postby mcwinter » Fri Nov 09, 2018 11:04 am

I attended the Gone Farmin auction in Davenport, IA, yesterday, and the two tractors I was most interested in were a 1935 F-12 and a 1929 Regular. Though both were pulled through the auction line, they appeared to be complete and in fairly good condition. The F-12 (steel wheels) went for $500 and the Regular (rubber) for $600. These were the lowest prices of the day for similar shape tractors. If I had a trailer with me I would likely have come home with the Regular. Are these typical auction prices for these two Farmalls sold yesterday?

My personal rule is no more than 5-600 for any small tractor that doesn't run unless for some reason I >really< want it.

The price is always significantly hurt when a tow strap is involved. Kinda puts the buyer in the "scrap metal" mentality.

Me I’m auctions usually go higher, but since they were non-runners, they sold just over scrap prices.

I looked up the F-12. It looked really nice. If it’s an easy fix, somebody got a deal.
