  • OTTAWA -- For the second year, Vintage Iron & Traditions of Eastern Ontario will present a collectible toy tractor sale at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show, with the 90th edition set for March 14-16.

    This year's model will be the Allis Chalmers D-14; last year, the miniature was the 460 Farmall with 50 units at $75 each selling out in under an hour. Number One in the series sold for $4,000 at the auction in support of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario which is sponsored annually by the show organizer, the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association.

    In 2017, 125 units will be up for grabs at $75 each; once again, Number One will be entered in the CHEO auction. Pre-orders are being accepted.

    "We expect results similar to the first sale," said VITEO outgoing president Barry Dean, who is also chair of the OVFS 90th anniversary committee. "This time, the boxes will include decals celebrating the farm show's 90th and Canada's 150th."

    Dean was pleased to announce that a full-size D-14 will be on display at the show, compliments of Renfrew collector George Nesbitt, whose father was president of the Seed Growers during the mid-1940s.

    "It's great to see Nesbitt participation in the show carry on through George," Dean observed. "Part of the appeal of the toy sale is to have the real thing on hand as well. We did that last year and we're able to do it again in 2017."

    For more information, contact Tom Van Dusen, GM, 613-445-3407, or by email: tvd@ottawafarmshow.com.
