It hasn’t even sold yet and it’s a new record high price.
I’m talking about the 1971 IHC 1066 with only 2993 original hours, Hiniker cab, the very 1st IHC 1066 tractor made, SN# 2610154U007101, selling Tuesday (September 22, 2020) on the 1st Day of Jerry Everitt’s 3-Day Pre Estate Online Only Collector Auction in Strawberry Point, IA by Aumann Vintage Power.
Online bid already up to $54,000 this evening. 68 bids so far.
Current record high auction sale price on an IHC 1066 tractor is $46,000, set just last month on an August 14, 2020 auction in Hartington, Neb. by CHJ Auctioneers on an IHC 1066 with 794 original hours.
So new record high auction sale price coming on this 1st 1066 made selling on Tuesday. How high do you think it will go?
Cool original sales paperwork on this very 1st IHC 1066 made…sold December 8, 1971 at Bob Falb Implement in Elgin, IA to Floyd Alber. Mr. Alber traded in his IHC 806 diesel on the 1066 and owed net $3,500 on the deal.
