Record Price: John Deere 6030 Tractor Sells for $40,000

December 9, 2010

The hottest collector tractor?

Ask me and I’d tell you it just may be the John Deere 6030, made by Deere from 1972-1977. Confirmation came last month at a tractor collector auction in Wesley, IA. This sale by Ryerson Auction & Realty featured (2) JD 6030′s. A restored 1975 model 6030 sold for a record high auction price of $40,000. I caught up with my auctioneer friend Gene Ryerson the week after for a video interview (click on video above).

Also on the auction was a cool restored 1968 Chevy pickup and a 1926 Ford Model T “Rat Rod” car. Check out the video to see what all this stuff sold for.

    WOW! I know where there is one of these old fuel hogs sitting in the edge of a field. I know it ran when it was parked there 15-20 years ago. Still has a bucket on top of the stack. I think I might just have to go see if the owner will let me have it for scrap value and do a restoration project and truck it out to Iowa.
