Experienced Porsche Junior Tractor Racer Looks No Worse for Wear

1958 Porsche Diesel Junior Tractor

Classic Porsche tractor has seen extensive farm use and racing action, but you sure can’t tell!

There are two things on this earth that typically gather more wear and tear than most – race cars and tractors. And, well, that’s to be expected. After all, you’re talking about things that get beat on continuously. One for the purpose of shaving lap times, the other in an effort to produce bountiful crops. But in the case of this gorgeous dual purpose 1958 Porsche Junior tractor we spotted over at Bring a Trailer, there’s no sign of wear whatsoever.

Considering the fact that this vintage Porsche farm machine actually campaigned in last year’s Rennsport Reunion IV tractor races, that’s pretty impressive. Sure, it’s been refurbished, but that took place way back in the early ’90s. And according to the seller, this old Porsche has been used extensively since they purchased it a full 28 years ago.

You certainly wouldn’t be able to tell that by looking at this stunning tractor. The old paint job looks pretty much perfect, all the trim essentially flawless. Even the air-cooled 822cc single-cylinder engine presents nicely. Clearly, this beauty has been well cared for over the years. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been driven hard – not by a long shot. In fact, it took home a pair of top 5 finishes at last year’s Rennsport Reunion.

Now, the seller is offering up this classic ride for someone else to enjoy. And even though they’ll have to wait a couple of years before the next Reunion, that’ll give them plenty of time to polish up on their tractor racing skills!
