Vintage tractors and trucks headline Gone Farmin’ spring sale

Docket includes 37 trucks from Hays museum collection


More than 150 vintage trucks, 350 tractors and nearly 200 lots of road art/farm relics are scheduled to cross the block at Mecum Auctions Gone Farmin’ Spring Classic sale scheduled for March 24-26 at the Bend XPO in East Moline, Illinois.

Featured tractors include a 1926 Bryan Steam Tractor, believed to be the only one of five that exist; an 1898 Case 12 HP Compound Traction Engine; and two steel-wheel crawlers, a Lamborghini and a Minneapolis-Moline.

The vintage trucks on the docket include 37 from the Hays Antique Truck Museum collection, including a 1939-40 Peterbilt Model 260GT 5-ton, believed to be the only first-generation Peterbilt to be offered at auction. Mecum notes that fewer than five such first-generation Peterbilts are known to still exist.
