1913 CASE 30-60 tractor

You may have heard of antique cars selling for millions of dollars… but antique tractors?!

It's the most expensive tractor ever sold.

The 1913 CASE 30-60 is an impressive machine.

“This tractor was huge. It’s called a prairie tractor, I mean it was used to break virgin prairie in the farming fields and pull an eight bottom plow.”

That’s Kurt Aumann with Aumann Auctions – which sold the tractor for a whopping 1-point-4 million dollars. That’s not only the most expensive antique tractor ever sold, it’s the most expensive tractor ever sold, period.

Aumann says the tractor belonged to a collector in Iowa who recently passed away. It sold it to a museum in Connecticut.

It’s one of only five models in existence.
