AMAZING BARN FIND, VERY OLD ESTATE CLEAN UP !
It is amazing to find this many old iron tire tractors all being IH brand, all at one location ! All were found in northwest Alabama, all from same owner, and all under sheds until we drug them out to see sunlight for the first time in decades !
We are not old tractor experts by no means ,so this is basically all we know about them.
We have not attempted, in any way, to try to start ,turn over, or work on these, in any form or fashion. That will all be up to the new owner.
OFFERED AS A LOT SALE ONLY , WE ARE NOT SELLING INDIVIDIAL UNITS !
There are 7 tractors total :
3- "we think" are F-series Farmall IH , from the 1930's ??
1- "we think" is a IH 816 chain drive from the late teens or early 20's ??
1- (according to the factory plate) B-Series IH Farmall w/ PTO
2- "we think" are F-series Farmall IH from the 30's "PARTS TRACTORS ONLY"
* NONE OF THE IRON WHEELS ARE RUSTED THROUGH ANYWHERE ,ALL VERY VERY SOLID !!!!!!
*ALL ARE HAND CRANK !
* The 3 f-series tractors looks fairly complete, 1-2 looks as if you could actually get them going pretty easy ! One is missing head and engine is all rusty. All of them has working steering !! Believe it or not , boy they made good stuff back then !
* The IH 816 is a very odd machine , CHAIN DRIVE ! A very interesting tractor, with a wide front end ! It is in good solid shape for something from the TEENS !
(wonder how many legs this thing has cut off ? )
* The old B tractor is pretty solid also but will need some sheet metal and who knows what .
PARTS - there are also several odd loose parts that go with the lot . There are complete rear ends, tanks, steering parts, valve covers, and etc.
ALSO WITH THIS LOT !
4- Skid motors ,we think are all IH 1-2 of them are pretty complete and don't look like it would take that much to get going ??? But who knows ?
It appears as if many of the skid motor parts are the same as the tractors. From what we can tell a guy could easy get 2-3 complete really nice F-Series from this lot ,and who knows what all else. But for sure the chain drive ,wide front tractor is something to see.
We have a large flat, rock parking lot and have machines setting ready to easy load on trucks. Delivery is also available at reasonable fee.
DON'T MISS OUT ON THESE , THIS TYPE CHANCE DOES NOT COME AROUND EVERYDAY ! THE HISTORY IN THESE ARE AMAZING !
