Worked in fields and powered saw mill before going on display for half a century
Turns out you don’t necessarily have to go to one of Mecum Auctions’ Gone Farmin’ sales to add a vintage farming tractor to your collection. Take, for example, our Pick of the Day, a 1930 Fordson Model F tractor being offered on ClassicCars.com by a dealer in Tifton, Georgia.
According to the advertisement, this Ford workhorse was restored in 1970 and was on display for more than 50 years at the Kennon Tractor Company in Tifton. The company got the tractor back as a trade-in in the 1960s.
Turns out that Kennon also sold the tractor when it was brand new.
After its career in farm fields, the tractor was used for many years as a stationary motor to power a saw mill, the seller notes.
The 1930 Fordson Model F is powered by an inline 4-cylinder engine and is being offered for $4,500.
To view this listing on ClassicCars.com, see Pick of the Day.
PS: If you want to see a lot of this sort of vehicle at one time, Mecum’s first Gone Farmin’ auction of the year is scheduled for April 5-7 at Davenport, Iowa.
