  • Norman Bates Auction 17th Oct Bencubbin WA Wheatbelt

    For all of you old tractor fanciers, and other old farm gear, you might want to have a look at this old guy's work. He spent a lifetime restoring some of Australia's farming history. The old boy has passed away, and would like his work to go to those who might appreciate it.

    Wow, there's some pretty neat stuff there.

    Love the old caravan, very unique. Had a similar larger one on the farm that the FIL's dad built. After his passing the FIL decided to burn it down and drag off to the dump, which caused some anger among the relies

    Would be awesome to go to the auction!

      Yeah, what is one man's trash, can easily be someone else's treasure.

      There are plenty of treasures in that catalogue.

      I wish I had the space, and the financial freedom to acquire some of these pieces.

      Interest from Europe and the USA is quite high for some of these rarities, apparently.

    G'day mate, the Benz - Sendling 1925 Twin Cylinder Diesel sold for a staggering $102,000.

    The above link is to a vintage vehicle forum where we were talking about it and if you scroll towards the bottom of the page there are a few of the pictured lots named and how much they were sold for.

    Cheers, Lindsay
