Continuing in the construction business, I have decided to free up some space in my shop and pole barns by commissioning Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Auction. I will be selling some of the items that have been taking up a lot of space in the barns! I invite you to attend my auction and thank you in advance for your attendance. Regards, John Bonthuis


NOTE: The 1946 GMC Mod. EC303 grain truck is parade ready and in original excellent condition! Low miles and always kept indoors, it originally came from Nebraska you and will want to come out and look this one over if you’re looking for a great piece of farm & truck history!

The JD “A” is also ready for the parade or show circuit with new paint and new tires all around. Over 50 new in box toy tractors along with the trucks, trailers, shop tools and miscellaneous will make this a nice Auction to attend. We will try to have off street parking if conditions allow, lunch wagon, wash-up station and port-a-jon for your convenience.  

A few items from the neighbors.
