|Estimate||£16,000 - £20,000|
The Porsche 219 Standard Tractor is a classic agricultural machine that was produced by Porsche from 1956 to 1963. It was part of the company's foray into tractor production, which was a natural progression given their expertise in automotive engineering. The Porsche 219 Standard Tractor was designed to be a reliable and efficient workhorse for small to medium-sized farms, and it certainly lived up to that expectation.
The tractor is powered by a 25 horsepower, air-cooled diesel engine that was designed in-house by Porsche. It has a four-speed gearbox and a top speed of 25 miles per hour. The 219 Standard Tractor was also fitted with a three-point hitch, which made it easy to attach and detach a wide range of agricultural implements such as ploughs, cultivators, and mowers.
One of the standout features of the Porsche 219 Standard Tractor was its sleek and modern design, which was typical of Porsche's automotive styling at the time. Today, the 219 Standard Tractor is a highly sought-after collector's item for enthusiasts of classic agricultural machinery and Porsche automobiles alike.
