Rare IHC 7488 Tractor on Pennsylvania AuctionAugust 18, 2016
Very rare tractor coming up for sale here folks.
An IHC 7488 with only 4,492 hours, 1 of 16 ever made, will be up for sale on a September 9, 2016 auction in Refton, PA. The sale is by my friends at Leaman Auctions, Ltd: http://www.leamanauctions.com/
In the past 20 years I've only seen an IHC 7488 tractor sold once at auction, back on an October 9, 2013 farm auction out in northwest North Dakota. That 7488 had 5000 total hours on it, 450 hours on a new engine and sold for $71,000. Here's a picture of it:
Here are the Specs listed on the IHC 7488 with 4,492 hours on the September 9, 2016 auction in Refton, PA: "20.8R x 38 tires with matching duals, Tires are the B F Goodrich 10 ply Power Saver Radials and could be the originals, three remotes, and PTO, has Std hitch and NO 3 PT.
