Kind of pretty, don't you think?

This restored 1966 IHC 1206 diesel tractor is up for sale on an auction in Onawa, IA this Saturday (September 21, 2013). IHC 1206's have kind of been the poster boy for what I've been calling "The New Collector Tractor"....by this I mean models from the mid 1960's - the mid 1970's. LOT of $$'s been flowing to acquire these very nice restored or original tractors at auction the past few years.

So how high have the nicest IHC 1206's sold at auction?

Good question. A quick bit of digging in our www.machinerypete.com web site's "auction results" database turned up these facts...the highest auction sale prices I've seen on IHC 1206's the past few years:
