Always fun to run across a County tractor selling at auction.
4x the fun today (October 25, 2019) then on the 2nd Annual Inventory Reduction Auction for Long Lane Tractor in Elizabethtown, PA as they had (4) County tractors on the sale by Leaman Auctions, LTD (www.leamanauctions.com). These 4 County trators were a little rough around the edges for sure, but still big fun to see them and hear what they sold for. Here’s the scoop.

Pretty interesting history on County tractors. The company from Hampshire England was founded back in 1929 and was known as County Commercial Cars Ltd. Their niche was converting Ford trucks from 2 to 3 axles. They moved into the Tractor biz in later years.

Here’s I think my all time favorite County tractor picture I’ve run across…Bill Flies from up the road just a bit from me in Plainview, MN, driving his County 754 in a local parade…sharp!
