1964 John Deere 4020 Sold Saturday on Kentucky Auction For 3rd Highest Price
Oct 23, 2017
Usually the eye popping auction sale prices on John Deere 4020 tractors are on 1972 or 1971 models.
But not always.
Saturday (October 21, 2017) on a farm auction in Mt. Washington, KY, the 1964 model John Deere 4020 pictured below sold for $16,000 on a sale by my good friends at Jeff Boston Auction Service (http://www.bostoncentury.com). It was a diesel, power shift, had only 3,643 original hours, canopy and narrow front:
Of course Deere made the iconic 4020 model from 1964 - 1972. So how high is $16,000 for a 1964 model? Very high. In fact, $16,000 is tied for the 2nd highest auction sale price ever on a non "High Crop" 1964 model 4020.
