**FOR SALE** 1917 Heider C1939 20HP
Asking $25,000 USD + Applicable Taxes.
We purchased this Heider from the Hume family in Milton Ontario. The Humes owned the tractor since 1963.
They bought the tractor from Albert Fleeger, a noted watch fob collector. Albert had restored and repaired the tractor in the early 1960's and many of those repairs are still apparent including the original style fringe that he had to have custom made at the time.
Albert bought it from Alby Meyers who was 94 years old at the time he sold it. Alby used the tractor as a field engine to run his threshing machines and bailers. Albert said that when he purchased the tractor he saw the equipment that had been run with it and stated that by the 1950's it was apparent by the condition of the equipment that none had been used for many years.
Albert who we spoke to in 2018 said Alby employed the tractor mainly before the Second World War and sparingly afterwards.
The tractor is still in running condition today.

(Season 7 coming soon)
Eccentric entrepreneur David Grainger might like to fly planes, ride horses and race boats but his true love has led him to one career and there is nothing blue-collar about it. At The Guild of Automotive Restorers, David Grainger and his team save the world's rarest classic vehicles. From re-building a one-of-a-kind turn of the century French De Dion, to recreating the multi million dollar Bugatti Aerolithe or by getting the engine of a 1969 Plymouth GTX roaring back to life.
David's crew of automobile mavericks turn rust into gold and deal with all the dents along the way. However, it is not just about the cars. David scours the planet's most elite auctions with friend and investment partner Larry Burns. They often bring back four wheeled gems to fix-and-flip. Shop manager Greg Bowler keeps the restoration garage machine running smoothly.
AND for all those people who have been asking...David's shirts are tailored by Bugatchi (Seasons 4 & 5)
