Auction Hunter - The Results are in.....

Postby ricky racer » Thu Apr 04, 2013 8:08 pm

My plans are to attend an auction this Saturday, good Lord willing and the creek don't rise. They have listed a Cub w/ cultivators that has not run in a few years. Also listed is a plow for it. Not running sounds a little closer to my price range. :roll: No picture available.

Also listed, well out of my price range, is a 1924 Ford Model T Run-About that has been parked in a shed for 20 years. Bill says the interior is immaculate and the actual car is very clean.

If anyone wants to send me a blank check to help me out, I'd like to bid on that "T". :big smile:

It may not be running when you get it but soon will be. :) :)

Model T's are found much easier than one would think, and cost a lot less than most would think as well. Take it from a guy that has been driving this one for pretty close to 50 years.

Both are very nice cars... :{_}:
I've worked on cars for so long they all look alike to me. When asked about something I worked on yesterday I just shake my head and ask if it was a model A or T, anything else is all the same. :lol:

Those T's really stand out to me, would love to own one someday. :D
I'd bet at a auction it'll be as usual, right through the roof.... :roll:

Good luck on the cub tractor Rick, maybe you can slip it out while everyone's looking at that T. :lol:

Rick,
Take your camera along and snap some shots of the auction activities. Then post some here.

Hope the Cub and assorted implements are well within your price range!!

I hope for cold weather and rain for auction day :mrgreen: It keeps all the bidders home. I don't know how familiar you are with auctions, but I can give you some tips.

#1. stand at the back of the crowd so you can see who is bidding and don't bid against your self. Some auctioneers will take double bids and sometimes in the excitement of it all people will bid against themselves because they loose track of who is high bidder.
#2. The bidding will start high and drop down before the first bid is placed... People like to hold off and let it go as low as possible before they put in that first bid. Don't be afraid to put that first bid in at a higher number. As an example: They will probably start it at 1200 and drop back to 1000.00 then 900.00 etc. Somebody might put the first bid in at 500.00. That person may have a budget of 800.00 on the tractor. So if you start it at 800.00 they are less likely to bid. However if you let them put the first bid in at 500.00 and they reach 800.00, they are more likely to think "What is another 25.00" and bid to 825.00, then to 875.00 etc. You can eliminate some of your competition by starting the bid higher.
#3. Don't be afraid to jump the bid upwards... I have bought a lot of stuff buy jumping the bod up 2-300.00. It throws other bidders off and the auctioneer will often close the bidding before they have time to think over what just happened.

Good luck. and don't go crazy. Get there early and look the tractor over well. If parts are missing, wiring is frayed, tires rotted, don't pay 1500.00 for it. If it does infact have a complete set of cultivators with no welds or cracks you have about 600.00 in value right there.

And don't forget the pictures... Even if you don't win... we want to see it.

Same here, most people get the same idea that there would be fewer people so they decide to go. The result is all those people show up and there is a crowd. I have been to many crowded rainy day auctions.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

In my experience, cold and rain only keep the tire kickers home. Those with money in their pockets don't seem to mind the weather.

So what do you think a "T" like that is worth????
