Default Lorne Harris Auction Results

Any of you Stakkers attend the recent Lorne Harris sale in Ontario, Canada? Been trying to find out where the Sandusky tractor ended up and for how much. A buddy was trying to get to the sale but could not make it. Thanks in advance for any information.

Sawyer-Massey 20-40 $60,000.00
Sawyer-Massey 11-22 $52,500.00
Sandusky 10-20 $165,000.00
Continental Cultor $3,600.00
Empire Tractor 90-11 $6,000.00
Eagle 22-45 $80,000.00


The big Sawyer Massey and the Eagle went to a museum in Chicago and I believe the Sandusky went to a fellow in California, but I have heard Florida as well, the smaller Sawyer Massey I believe went overseas...they are supposed to have the auction results on the auctioneers website soon

The Sandusky is going to Porterville, CA to the Doug Peltzer collection for I believe 160 K Canadian. It seems as though Doug had to outbid George Schaff for the pleasure of paying that amount.

Thanks gentlemen for the information. Nice to see rare tractors are not leaving the country (or I should say continent) at the moment!

Any mention about the Hart Parr at the auction? I also couldn't attend and am curious about it.

I think the Hart-Parr sold for about $5000.00 and went somewhere around Rockwood,Ontario if I remember correctly.

I'm the proud new owner of that Hart Parr 18-36. It's new home is actually Beeton, ON. Some buddy's from Rockwood luckily had some extra space on their trailer. I wanted it home ASAP.

What a fantastic auction though! We don't see auctions of this calibre very often here in Ontario so it was an event you had to "schedule in" if you are an enthusiast. It could have been a 3 day auction due to all the smaller items. They were almost giving stuff away on the wagons towards the end of day two. All the machinery, regardless of age or collectibility
was straight and clean. I didn't know Lorne but he looked like a caretaker.

There was also a fabulous lineup of antiques and various tractor parts......I didn't get pictures but imagine a hay wagon covered with magneto's, buzz coils and oilers (with no room to stand) It was pretty wild!

Nice buy, Jeff. Is it in running condition? I have an 18-36 also, was running about three or four years ago but I haven't had time to do anything with it yet. It's stored at a friend's place about five miles away and I am hoping to get it home here this weekend.

It runs, but there's a short story.....I got very lucky at the auction and was able to drive it onto my friends trailer, however, when it came home and was sitting in the yard, it wouldn't start. It turned out the impulse on the mag was not working correctly. A quick fix from my neighbour who's handy with magneto's fixed that. Now it fires up with one or two turns.

My computer software for my camera is acting up, but as soon as I get it corrected I'll post some pictures.
