INCREASING VALUE OF COLLECTOR TRACTOR

HAVE JOHN DEERE COLLECTOR TRACTORS HIT THERE PEAK VALUE?

 

There are a lot of collectors who own 20 or more of these Classic 20 Series Collector Tractors and a lot of new people are beginning to buy them for investments as it is becoming clear that the value will just keep rising. There are also people who just want one of these tractors so they have a classic tractor to show. The more these tractors are being bought, and stored in collector’s sheds, the less they are becoming available and this part of the reason this drives the price up.

 

WHY DO LOW PRODUCTION NUMBERS AFFECT THE PRICE?

 

            Any model that has less then 1,000 tractors built is considered to be a collectable tractor and the Series with the fewest tractors are by far more valuable. The side console models are also more desirable especially the ones that have powershift, as they were built  ahead of their time.

 

EXAMPLES OF INCREASING VALUES IN THESE TRACTORS

  • Just  recently a 1971 JD 4000 Diesel Powershift ( 1 of 403 built) sold at an auction for $28,000, the retail price in 1971 was $8,900 
  • A few years ago a 4230 Low Profile tractor ( another low production # tractor) sold for close to $40,000
  • At the last collector auction a 1972 JD 4020 Diesel Powershift sold for $24,000 without being restored
