Don't know about the IHC, but that $1,000,000 JD was on Ebay last fall with a $600,000 minimum and they didn't get one bid. Guess know one wanted to make an instant $400,000 eh? There is an ongoing arguement about legitimacy of that JD from what I have read on their boards.

What we do know is that the one million dollar John Deere is not worth $600,000!

My father used to say, "nothing is worth nothing until the money changes hands". I could put a price of $10,000 on my F12 with the jeep motor, but that dont mean its worth that.

I have heard stories that Case/IH has one of the original Farmalls stashed away some place, along with some other notable and historic tractors. No idea if any of those stories are true. Maybe somebody like Guy Fay or Ken Updike could verify or debunk the stories. I too saw a so-called rare/valuable early John Deere on ebay last year. I don't remember the specific numbers, but it could have been that one. Supposedly it had been displayed at the Smithsonian or something like that (it looked like just another john deere to me). I love these old Farmall tractors, but I haven't seen or heard of any yet that I would pay a million dollars for, even if I had the money.

There is a John Deere that is in one of my books- it is called "The American Farm Tractor" which is by Randy Leffingwell. Ther is a JD GP, 23 tricycles were built, in which only 2 are known to exist.. It has a narrow front, and steel wheels. A lot of people have the GP WT, which is obviously the wide tread model. If you haven't heard of it, well now you have..

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares. As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison. As far as I was aware a fordson was a fordson and it was only through trial an ... [Read Article]
