Ok here one i layed on a couple guys at a sale over in Chambersburg Pa. one time . I had taken over a I H 370 disc and a I H 470 wing disc. The disc's were in decent shape Except they were short on blades as they were under 18 inches , They had no welds on the frames and paint was real good all decals were clear . I was standing next to them and over heard the one guy sayen that the blades were shot and i could not help myself and chimed in and said Oh no them are the what the guys out west are now usen them SMALL BLADE that way they don't bring up the wet soil . when they started selling i stood back and watched the one guy bought the 470 and i hate to say this but made my day on what he gave and when they sold the 370 lets just say i tripled my money even with hauling them from Ill. to Pa. At a sale in Ind. that i never missed i was standing there at the first tractor to sell and it was a 1066 with cab duals quick hitch extra fuel tank loaded with weights and even the A/C worked The auctioneer tryed kicking it off for 7500 and hammered away for a good while and no bidders he backed up to 6 then 5 and finally said just what do you want to give for it and i said outloud 3250 and he took it and away we went till we hit 4250 and i owned it . I took my ticket and walked away as there was noting i was interested in in that row so i went over to the next row and sat down . A guy comes over to me and say to me i see you did not sell your 1066 , i said no i just BOUGHT a 1066 , Nah that was your tractor , AH NO but it is mine now . Well what do you want for it , Well i will take 9500 for it as it sets , OH thats to much i'll give ya 6 , Nope i'll just put it on the trailer and get it home strip off the duals the weights , quick hitch and ft weight bracket and fuel tank and when i am done it will make me around 105 to 11 . On the next row i bought 2 706 gassers for 27something for the pair and on the next row i bought a 1979 Massey 750 combine with 1850 org. hours with 6 row 1163 corn head and a 1859 bean head and cart for 2750 and again i was asked if i did not get it sold.
