Lot 1948

Description:

1957 Porsche PIII Tractor
Reg. no. 184 CY72
Chassis no. 12131
Engine no. Unknown
Porsche entered the farm tractor market soon after WWII with its Allgaier built design. They became popular in Germany and France for a time, but soon the company\'s offering was overtaken by Massey Ferguson, coincidentally at about the same time as the Porsche sports car took off. This very original air cooled PIII has been used for vineyard cultivation and it has a hydraulically controlled Huard plough. Recently new front tyres were fitted and the bonnet was repainted, by tractor historian Nick Baldwin who has owned the Porsche for ten years. These Porsche tractors have become a must-have accessory for landowning Porsche Carrera owners with some incredible five figure sums being paid. However we are more down-to-earth in rural Wiltshire, hence the more modest estimate! This tractor is offered with a French logbook and a set of instructions.
