John Deere at Mecums 2014 

The Mecum Gone Farmin’ Iowa Premier in Davenport, Iowa, this past weekend was host to 287 tractors, of which 234 sold for an 82 percent sell-through rate and $2,073,653 in total sales.

Top sales included a 1959 John Deere 730 LPG Hi-Crop (Lot S40) from the LPG Collection that sold for $68,500. As one of only 28 produced, the tractor had been housed in a John Deere Museum and presented in excellent condition with its original and correct three point. The second-highest seller was a 1974 John Deere 6030 (Lot S48) that hammered at $44,000. Fresh from a complete restoration which included an engine overhaul and new tires, the tractor also featured custom fenders, an air ride seat, PTO and roll bar and canopy.
