Nice eye candy in this 1972 1466 with narrow front end

Very seldom does one see a 1466 with the nfe, I guess the only ones Ive seen are on the pulling track but still looks good to see something a little different and I found this over on tractorhouse and you can take it home from Pennsylvania for $29,500 or about three times more than what it sold for new back in 72

1466 nfe 1972 model for $29,500.webp

Very nice! Talked to a gentleman at the antique show this past weekend who purchased a new 1466 with narrow front.  He mounted a 234 picker on it.  Said it would eat corn!

I bet it would 😳. I have seen a 766 with a 234 picker but never anything larger in the 66 series

  A third of 29,500 dollars?  A farmer I knew bought a 1466 just after college in 1972.  Seems to me he paid over 18,000 dollars for an open station 18.4 X 38 with dual speed PTO equipped tractor.

Dad bought an open station 766D in the fall of '73 for $9000.  Two sets of rear wheel weights, 500 lb. front weights, IH wind/weather breaker, and fender mount radio.

A large factor in pricing for a dealer is quantity ordered and cash or floor plan.  Most of the dealers around here would not compare with a high volume Midwest dealer in terms of pricing.  Maybe a handful of IH dealers in NY had a dozen or more 66 series row crops in their yard at any one time.  If somebody wanted a 1466 around here they most likely would have had their local dealer order it.  The farmer next door back during the 1970's paid almost 14,000 dollars for his 1974 966 with factory cab.

No it's not. Little further west.

Think it has an 06 56 bolster under it. Functions the same and most won't notice it behind the weights but I don't think it's a 66. 

Nice tractor still.

At least the turbo decals are on straight

Really doesn't seem like too bad of a price, depending on if it's mechanically as good as it is cosmetically.  Have y'all been to an auction and seen 10-20 yr old tractors sell lately?!  They're higher than they sold for new, even with a bunch of hours on them, if they appear in good shape.

I wish I had a pedistal for a 1066. I have a wet bolster and I plan on converting a 86 series axle to hi crop for our 1066 high crop. I guess I have to settle for a 706 pedistal

Dad bought a new open station 1066 and a new 710 plow the fall of 1972 for $11,000.  The black stripe 1466 with a cab grandad bought was $14,000 in 1976.

Dad bought a 4-16 710 at the same time, for $1500, so $10,500 for the pair.  Inflation was going pretty good at the time (nothing like we're fixin' to see soon, though), so your dad's pair probably would have cost $13 - $14,000 a year later (just a guess).

All the old guys around here told me the 1066 or 1466 were around 17,000 in 1974. Most also say they had a jd 4430 ordered and couldn’t get them or dealer went up in price on deal. The 4430s were actually cheaper than the ih. They ended up buying an ih tractor and they all griped about it for years.

Grandpa bought a used 1466 in 1975 for $14150.

I’ve never heard that a green one was ever priced cheaper. Around here they use to say “5k more” and “25 hp less” 

  4020 synchro diesel was usually under an 806 diesel with TA all other features such as tires and remotes being the same.

  Freight is nothing like it is today but even back then there had to be a whole lot more freight to get a tractor 100 miles or so east of Buffalo, NY than within a couple hundred miles of the Farmall plant.

I was told a story by a woman of watching her father’s brand new 966 being unloaded off of a train at the local grain elevator for delivery near their farm. It was a white panel 966 but I don’t know the exact price or year.

Here in  NY, this area must have always been poor.  Nobody had a “new” tractor back in the ‘60s-‘80s. I can only think of two, both 86 series, that were purchased new in this area.  To me, “new” use to mean something that was a few years newer than the really old stuff that we had.

I remember when Dad took delivery of a brand new 175 Allis. There was a couple of inches of snow on the ground, probably December. Needed to spend some money before the end of the year? They must have eithered it to get it started, always a typical Allis diesel, hard sterner in cold weather. They don't even have an Allis engine! 2.48 perkins I believe. Much as I love all things Orange, why they could't make them start a little better when under 60 degrees baffles me to this day!

Ok, rant over.

  I can think of a lot of areas in NY where 3-4 new tractors total would have been average.  This would include utilities.  Our closest IH dealer would have on average 3 or 4 new row crops and a couple of utilities.  Go over into vegetable country and there would be more but certainly not double.  Down in the Southern Tier a couple new tractors total would have been average stock.  I still maintain that for quite a number of models the jockeys brought more back from the Midwest than what were sold new.  How far away was Darrow from you?  He always had close to a dozen used IH 56 and 66 series tractors for sale.
