A VERY Rare 1967 Case 930 LP Comfort King Wheatland
Jan 06, 2012
This tractor was featured for the month of January in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
You’re looking at one of the most desirable special Case tractors in the country. It’s a Wheatland, with those handsome fancy fenders. It’s a rare LP gas model. It’s a near-perfect original, only 1,080 hours, original tires and original paint!
This is one of the final/rugged chain-drive model made in a special run in 1967—a design dating to 1929 in the Case L. In Nebraska test No. 922, the Case 930 LP gas rated 85.5 PTO hp at 1,800 rpm from a 377 cu. in. 6-cylinder engine. The LP gas option (pressurized tank is located behind the seat), cost an additional $390. This tractor was brought new by Kansan Ben Schneider at Bridgeport Implement, Bridgeport, Neb.
