Tracking auction prices on Freightliner FLD 120 trucks

A quick update.

Three weeks back I mentioned the 1968 model Allis Chalmers D21 tractor with 3,600 hours up for sale on a small auction in north-central Pennsylvania. A caller wondered what it was worth, and what it would possibly sell for. The D21 being somewhat of a rare model, I skimmed through our historical sale price data and made my best guess.

Wow, was I off.

The tractor sold for $19,000, much higher than I had guessed. The bidding started at $7,000 and didn't look back. The tractor had some recent work done to it, with 50 hours on it since a complete overhaul. It featured a very nice paint job.

I talked with the auctioneer, Bob Shaylor, after the sale. Bob said he got a number of calls after the sale from guys wondering what it sold for. One call was from a young farmer whose father was after him to figure out what their very nice condition AC D21 was worth. He was hoping it was worth $10,000.

Uh, yeah, I think it's safe to say it's worth at least $10,000 if it's in great shape.

That small auction in north-central Pennsylvania also featured a 1993 Freightliner FLD 120 truck with 142,000-plus miles.
