Big Red ruled the auction block at Mecum’s Gone Farmin’ sale in Walworth, Wisconsin, last weekend with two post-war Farmalls selling for more than $20,000, another selling for more than $50,000 and still another not sold despite a high bid of $32,000.
The top earner of the August 7 event was a 1954 Farmall Super MDV TA that changed hands for a whopping $51,000. Meanwhile a 1953 Farmall Super HV, featured in the September 2010 issue of Hemmings Motor News, sold for $26,000 and a Farmall 1456 Golden Demonstrator (Year wasn’t given… 1970 perhaps?) went for $24,250.
Another noteworthy sale from the IH camp, a 1950 Farmall O-6, decked out in swoopy bodywork for orchard use, pulled brought in $12,000. Also interesting, the owner of a show-quality 1966 1206 Turbo elected to hold on to the tractor despite a high bid of $32,000.
While the aforementioned rare and unusual Farmalls sold for eyebrow raising sums, there were also plenty of deals to be had. For instance, a seemingly nice 1947 Farmall H crossed the block for just $1,500. A clean looking 9N Ford (the exact year wasn’t listed, we’re guessing late 1940-’42) sold for the bargain price of $1,000. A nice John Deere Model B changed hands for just $1,700. And a very presentable Case SC sold for just $800.
