Wow, what a beauty.
I’m talking about the restored 1963 John Deere 5010 tractor that sold for $45,000 on a May 24, 2014 collector auction in east-central Iowa. $45,000 is the second highest auction sale price I’ve ever seen on a JD 5010.
The highest sale price? $79,100 on a 2006 Ebay online auction for the very 1st SN# John Deere 5010. It was in kind of rough shape after having been used by a municipality in Oklahoma for many years. The buyer was well known collector of first SN# John Deere tractors, Walter Keller of Forrest Junction, WI. After extensive restoration work, here’s what that 1st SN# JD 5010 tractor looks like today:
The May 24, 2014 collector auction in east-central Iowa also had the second highest auction sale price I’ve ever seen on a JD 4320 tractor at $33,000. Here’s a pic:
The May 24, 2014 collector auction in east-central Iowa was responsible for two auction prices that were some of the highest I’ve seen for the respective models. If you enjoyed this post or want to read others, feel free to connect with us on Facebook or Google+!
