Auction Block: Plymouth Orchard Tractor

May 24, 2016

Category: Rides

One of the interesting things about truly groundbreaking products or pieces of technology is that, in time, they really don’t look like much. Take the Plymouth Orchard tractor, for instance.

While the tractor is striking in its retro design – it doesn’t scream “revolutionary” despite the fact that when it was released, it was the first tractor ever equipped rubber tires instead of the usual studded steel wheels. This particular one, which will be offered up for sale next month, was the only one of the original 214 built by the Plymouth Orchard Tractor company that was an ‘Orchard Model’. The Hercules IXB engine in the tractor sped this thing up to 25 miles an hour, giving you some nice get up and go. This piece of history will be given to the highest bidder at the Mecum Auctions in Lapeer, Michigan on June 3rd. [Purchase]
