Lot # 1 (Sale Order: 1 of 65)
You can't get much rarer than the 30-60 Case! Case had been playing with the idea of an internal combustion tractor as early as 1894. After nearly 20 years of on again and off again experimentation, they introduced the 30-60. The first Case tractor and the start of a long and successful line of Case tractors whose heritage continues today. There were 493 of these tractors built from 1912 to 1916. Only 5 of these tractors are left in existence!!! Two are owned by shows, two in tightly held collections and this tractor - possibly the only one you will ever have the opportunity to purchase. The 30-60 is a heavy tractor (28,500 lbs) and has 6 foot drive wheels. These tractors were built very heavy, even using some of the Cast steam engine components in it's construction. The “dainty” 10” bore and 12” stroke turns at only 350 r.p.m.’s turns out incredible lugging power. Each stroke of the crankshaft was a power stroke that brings a unique sound and ambiance to the tractor. There were two speeds forward and one in reverse. As they say, hindsight is 20/20 – a new 30-60 could be bought F.O.B. Racine for all of $2,500 with a 5% discount for cash! George acquired this tractor from the Sig Jacobsen collection and was owned by John Tysse and Harold Ottaway before that. The tractor underwent MAJOR restoration which included a total rebuild of the engine, new sheet metal, cab and radiator reworked, and of course a professional paint job. George has used this tractor at many shows! Even though it is one of the rarest and most prominent tractors in the entire hobby, it is not a static display. It has been in the field and on the belt many times, being used for its intended purpose. This Case 30-60 is to the tractor hobby what the Duesenberg is the automobile hobby. Don’t miss what may be your only opportunity to own a Case 30-60!!!
