Pete's Pick of the Week: 1972 John Deere 4320s Sell for Record Prices

For three years, I've been talking about and documenting what I call the "New Collector Tractor" trend involving models manufactured in the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s.

That trend hit new levels on Saturday (Nov. 2, 2013) as a pair of 1972 John Deere 4320 tractors sold on separate auctions in eastern Iowa for record prices.

At left is the 1972 John Deere 4320 with 7,000 hours, which sold for $31,250 on a farm retirement auction in Springville, Iowa. But then the 1972 John Deere 4320 pictured on the right--a 1972 Standard diesel power-shift model with 6,800 hours--sold for $38,000 on a collector auction in Davenport, Iowa.
