Found this coming up on a auction next month close by. Wonder what it is worth. This is the only one I've seen. Maybe others have seen one. I see HV's and other hicrops around. Just thought it was interesting.

Holy cow! The SMTA's always bring a premium. Here's one:

http://www.tractorshed.com/cgi-bin/photoads/classifieds.cgi?search_and_display_db_button=on&db_id=182360&query=retrieval

I don't know if it sold for that. Add to that diesel and I believe price goes up. And the high-clear, WOW!! If you go to this auction, let us know what it goes for!! If I win the lottery between now and then, I might go place a bid. :lol:

Amen!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Not only will that one bring a ton of cash, but the M diesels are noted for the heads cracking, supposedly due to improper shut down when hot. They are unique rigs, they started on gas, then when warm a lever was pulled that changed valve set ups, and I believe even moved a partition in the head to increase compression.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

That looks like the one Lane Freeman finished restoring last year in time for his big auction. If so, it is an exceptionally rare tractor in exceptional condition. It has the 44" rear and 24" front tire option, among others.

It sold last year for $45,000.

Here are some pictures from when it was finished last year:

:shock:

WOW! I'd better play a big lottery, not the scratch-offs. :roll: I don't really play the lottery, so I guess I won't own this one!!
