1996 tractor delivery

Dad went to a tractor reduction auction at friend's in Kansas in 1996. He had heard there was a low hour 806 there, and our original 806 had many hours on it. First purchase was an 806 Wheatland that "was going too cheap". Then he got the Farmall 806 he wanted. He called me that evening wondering if I was interested in a 1456 for $6000. It didn't bring that in the sale so it was pulled. Well, yeah. Trucking added $1200 per tractor.

This is what arrived a few weeks later after trucking was arranged. Truck driver said he got lots of thumbs up while coming cross country. Understandable.

I still have the 1456 and Wheatland. My brother has the Farmall 806.

dunno. The trucker was taking a fire truck from Pa back to Kansas area. I didn't quiz him, but it wasn't his first rodeo.
