For most collectors and old iron aficionados there are a lot of variables that make a tractor collectible. One of those variables is age, and we're interested in hearing what our readers think: How old does a tractor need to be before it is considered collectible? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!

One consideration would be the value that the collector places on the tractor. I may feel a tractor produced before 1960 is of a collectible status. Another may feel a 1980's tractor is a collectible. Other consideration's for me is the size of the tractor, its use on the farm; was its purpose to farm thousands of acres or just the family farm, the family farm carries much more weight here. When I go to tractor shows I prefer to visit the before 1960"s tractors so for me prior to 1960 would be my vote.

What makes a tractor collectible is does it fit in your collection mission. It also depends on how much room is available, if you have storage, remember todays tractor is tomorrows antique. I do have to admit, I love looking at and watching the pre 1930 tractors.
