Porsche Tractors were officially built from 1956 until 1963 in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Although the first prototype Porsche tractor, ”The Peoples Tractor” was designed and built by Dr. Porsche in the early 1930s. During the 30's 40's and 50's Porsche had licensing agreements with other equipment manufacturers to build tractors using his designs and patents, those tractors were and painter agricultural green. In 1956 the well-recognized “Porsche Red” tractors began working the fields in Europe and eventually making their way to the United States. They had a very good reputation for dependability and serviceability. Thousands were sold in North America, plowing farm fields and crops across the US and Canada. Today Porsche tractors are very sought after, due to their rarity and collectability. There were four models to choose from, the Junior, Standard, Super and the Master, 14 hp, 25 hp, 38 hp, 50 hp respectively. Recent sales suggest a price range for nicely restored tractors in the 25K to 30 K range. This 1961 Porsche tractor was exquisitely restored by Heritage Motorcar Restoration (HMR) in St. Petersburg, Florida, renowned for their concours winning 356's and quality workmanship. This Porsche “Junior” tractor underwent a no-expense spared complete nut and bolt, 100% restoration and is probably nicer than most concours finished show cars. The detail and correctness is impeccable. This museum quality tractor would be a great addition to any Porsche collection.
