Lot 230 - 1957 Porsche P111 Junior Tractor
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
We are delighted to offer a Porsche with a difference. Manufactured in 1957, this Porsche P111 Junior Tractor is driven by the single cylinder 822cc diesel engine that was claimed to produce 14hp. Ferdinand Porsche designed his first people's tractor in 1934 and continued production of tractors until the early 1960's. This lovely Junior P111 model presented today was imported from Italy during 2016 where it had been restored to a high standard by the proprietor of a Bosch main agency. Presented in Porsche Tractor Red with cream wheels and a recent set of new tyres, the tractor starts, runs well and operated in all forward and reverse gears. It has hydraulic lifting gear at the rear and a grass cutter attachment to one side. Please note that the Hydraulic lifting gear has been tested, however, the grass cutter has not. There is little history that accompanies this tractor, however, having been manufactured in 1957, this Porsche is MoT test exempt and will arrive at the sale with a NOVA certificate that will enable UK registration if so required. This attractive Porsche tractor is certainly an interesting entry into Porsche ownership that may be worked as designed or shown at any classic vehicle event, whether agricultural based or not. Of course, you may just like to use it for the occasional run to the pub on Sundays but wherever you take it, we are sure that you will draw a crowd and what a perfect addition to any Porsche collection.
