Classic 1930 Ford… tractor


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.

  1. Hello Mr. Edsall,
    I am trying to find the value of a 1930’s/1940’s Ford tractor that my 97 year old father owns. It has been sitting in his backyard for years. At present it is not running. A couple of years ago, my Dad and my husband got it running with a little work on the carburetor. It has a new battery, new carb parts and lines…Three tires in fair condition, one rear is new, the other is in rough shape. It has a 3-way box scraper (I believe?).

    • Christy, One thing you can do is to go to the mecum.com website, click on ‘tractors’ and then on ‘results’ and see if there are any tractors similar to the one in your yard. I recommend the Mecum site because its ‘Gone Farmin’ division is very active in the sale of vintage tractors. You also can click the ‘contact’ link to ask about your specific tractor. — Larry
