Low-hour IHC 1468 tractors on Iowa auction

I can’t wait to shoot video at this auction.

July 14, 2012 in Rock Valley, IA, the sale for 82-year old Albert Groeneweg’s personal collection of 37 John Deere & International tractors. Albert has been a very well know buyer & seller of high quality used tractors and equipment throughout the Midwest for many years. I bumped into Albert at a farm auction in northwest Iowa back in April.

“Pete, you better make it out to my sale on July 14th,” Albert told me.

Don’t worry Albert, I’ll be there, with my camera, shooting video of your impressive line of red & green tractors from the 1960’s and 1970’s as they sell, including these (3) IHC 1468s: (3) 1972 IHC 1468 Tractors For Sale on July 14, 2012 Auction: Rock Valley, IA (click the links to see the photos).

IHC 1468’s have actually been one of the “hottest” models I’ve seen on the auction market now for the last 18-24 months. The 1468 fits the trend of the “new collector tractor” perfectly…from the mid 1960’s up into the mid 1970’s. These 1468’s are also fairly rare to run across on the used market and on auctions, especially 1468’s in either very nice original or restored condition, like Albert’s (3) 1468’s.

So when tractors like this show up for sale at auction…checkbooks fly open. Check out the link below to see the auction sale prices I have compiled on IHC 1468 Tractors over the last 16+ years:
