Record Auction Price on IHC 1468 Tractor

Oct 07, 2013

 IHC1468 IN  33250

IHC 1468 tractors are hot. Red hot.

The latest proof came on a September 26, 2013 online farm auction in northwest Ohio by my friends at Schrader Real Estate & Auction. The IHC 1468 pictured above with 4,685 hours, a V8 diesel engine, 1 owner, sold for $34,250 ($33,250 purchase price +$1,000 buyer's commission = $34,250)...a new record high auction price. This is the 4th time I've seen a new record sale price set on IHC 1468's in the past 3 years. Here's the tally with accompanying pics & Youtube video:

* $17,000: model year?, 5,834 hours, sold on 3/13/10 west-central Illinois auction. Video:

* $23,750: 1973 model, restored, sold on 7/6/11 northeast Kansas auction. Picture:

As I've been writing and blogging about for 2-3 years now, this segment of the used market featuring really good condition tractors from the mid 1960's - mid 1970's just keeps getting "hotter"...what I like to call "The New Collector Tractor". How long with this record sale price on IHC 1468's stand? Stay tuned.
