@Clive told me today at Groundswell that this is worth north of £200k. Am I being messed with?
Too many zeros............£20k I would think!
Daft thing is they were only popular for a short time til the main stream tractor makes offered 4wd on new machines, then you couldn't give them away as a working tractor.
your having your leg lifted on this,
it's worth 12/ 15k, 17k on a good day if the auctioneer is facing east and praying to Mecca,
having said that, an 1884 County could well be worth the 200k as they are very collectable
Did he also tell you that if you buy all of the ice creams, you're guaranteed entry to heaven?
No - but I did buy all the beer!
What’s a double / triple doe worth these days ?
Steam traction engines are where the real money is.
Paul Cable's went for £42k just over a month ago. Read that it was around £25k less than expected!
You're not wrong there.
FOWLER B6 Road Locomotive “THE LION”
No. 14115, built 1914
Even a 35X Multipower hasn't quite reached those sorts of sums yet.
In all fairness, they are THE steam guys. One shouldn't be surprised if they're at the top of the bracket.
Thats cheap compared to what the showmans engines will make. Really annoys me when they put POA on an advert. Just makes me Pi??ed Off Again.
The money went out of these a fair number of years ago, a pair of ploughing engines if you want to sell them are worth about the same as 25 years ago but little else will make any real money
However, some serious money is needed in restoring them, keeping them going and exhibiting them..
My great grandfather bought this one in 1915:
And here it is today:
My grandfather went and drove it a few years ago before he died, I need to track it down and see if they'll let me do the same.
If your selling + I'm buying 15k
If I'm selling 60-80k
They're worth what people are willing to pay in reality.
Prices are guides really
a county made £10,000 ish last week at auction, majors around £1500 ish.
would have provided many happy hours of restoration and need several barrels of cider before concours was achieved
Enough barrels of cider and it will pass concours without any work (well in the drinkers eyes anyway)
@Chris F while I have you here ...................
Can you extend the time I can edit my posts please?
Just so that other people can understand them. No good reading them just after I've posted as they all look perfect.
Many thanks ............
