Default 30-60 Hart Parr On Christensen Auction 1986 Conrad,Montana



Some years ago I found this picture of the Christensen auction held in 1986 near Conrad,Montana..This is the 30-60 Hart Parr on auction day that sold to Gary Parker..In 2009 it sold to George Schaaf and its now on the cover of the Nov-Dec 2014 Antique Power...

I have seen another picture of the Christensen collection and it looked like a fantastic one with many rare tractors..What all did they have?? How many on this forum attended the Christensen auction?? How did things sell?? Would anyone have a copy of the sale bill or pictures to share with us? Was it in Gas Engine and Engineers and Engines Magazine? I remember being at Bill Krumweides in 1976 and the next day he was leaving for Conrad to buy a tractor from Christensens..

In mid November 1978 I and Dan Crist were in Montana looking around...It was in the 60's when we were in the Dakotas..It turned brutally cold while we were in north central Montana..I remember seeing lots of rare tractors still sitting on farms beside the hiways..One morning at Cut Bank,MT it was -20 with a foot of blowing snow...That day we looked at the Christopherson and Mehmke collections and about froze..We had wanted to go see the Christensen collection but decided it was best not to..Winter set in early that year and never let go..

I bought a 30-60 E Oilpull differential and master gears from Emil Christensen in 1970 and got them home in 1989. I didn't get out to see Emil. Dealing was buy mail and phone. He was hard of hearing.

I bought an E NOS 8 spoke 4 lug master gear from Bill Krumweidie in 1999. I didn't get out to see him.

Thanks so much Kevin..That would have been quite the sale...I just wonder how much of the collection had been sold off in the years prior to the auction...I know that Rumely Bill bought several rare tractors from Mort and Emil in 1976..He went to the bank for the cash while we were at his place loading a tractor...It seems like that one tractor that he mentioned was a square radiator 30-60 AT??? Its been too many years ago..

Does anyone else have sale bills from the early days of collecting? They are sure fun to look at..

We also dit the same for many years in the A.P.
Not reaction until we found our old princes on an old huge castle farm in an old dusty hall full with old spider webs in France...

So you never know.

Coult turned out in adventure.
