Plenty to Pick From: 10 Rare 1/16-Scale Toys

By Farm Collector Staff

The most common farm toy scale, 1/16, covers thousands of toys, making this list highly subjective.

1. John Deere 430 tractor (the green model in the photo above) with or without a 3-point hitch. These models, made in 1958, could sell for as much as $2,000 NIB.

2. John Deere 630 tractor. The 1959 version by Ertl Co., Dyersville, Iowa, offered with or without a muffler hole, is the rarest.

3. Allis-Chalmers WC tractor. The father of farm toy collecting, Fred Ertl Sr., made this as one of his first three farm toys. “I’ve never been able to find one,” says Rick Campbell, a longtime collector from Apple River, Ill.

4. Farmall H. This narrow-front tractor, often called the “Ertl H,” is the second of the earliest Ertl tractors. “Like the WC,” Rick says, “the Farmall H is super-tough to get.”

5. John Deere A (the silver model in the photo above). This early Ertl model variation (the third of the three early Ertl tractors) comes with aluminum wheels and is difficult to find. Rick says he had one of these with rubber wheels, but never the one with metal wheels.

6. International 1026 tractor with “Hydro” on hood, made by the Ertl Co. in 1970. Kate Bossen of Bossen Implement, Lamont, Iowa, says it’s tough to find a good original of this farm toy that hasn’t been repainted.

7. Cockshutt 1850. This model was made by the Ertl Co. in 1968, and is a narrow-front version in tan and red. It came with or without fenders. “That’s one you don’t see around a lot,” Kate says.

8. International Harvester 966 tractor with white front wheels. “That’s been kind of a hard one to find,” Kate says.

9. Agco-Allis 9695 tractor, unknown to many collectors. “Each dealer got one if they attended a certain meeting,” Rick says. “After that it was never decaled for a shelf model or collector model. It’s rarely seen at a toy show.”

10. White 6215 tractor. Rick says a short run of these tractors was made in 1994 with a straight frame. “Later models had cutouts or valleys in the hoods so you could turn the wheels sharper,” he adds.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for Thanksgiving to be over. Don’t get me wrong. I love the turkey centered holiday bringing families together to count our blessings. But putting the delicious leftovers away always puts me in the mood for Christmas!

As the mother of two boys, Christmas (in part) means a chance for new toys. As the mother of two boys who happen to live on a farm, that equates to farm toys. Even before my sons could crawl they seemed to want a tractor or a plastic farm animal within their reach. The first toy tractor in our house (if you don’t count my husbands’ precision collectibles) was a plush John Deere pillow. My oldest dragged that pillow around the house with him and when preschool started, it kept him comfortable at naptime.

John Deere pillow my son used for naptime for while he was in preschool.

Next came the “real” farm toys, in every shape and size, but only in one color. Around our house it was always John Deere green, because that’s what dad and grandpa ran.

However, tractors do come in other colors and Ertl® has been producing farm toy replicas since 1945. Industry brands such as John Deere, Case IH, New Holland, and AGCO can usually be found at your local feed store, large chain stores like Walmart, and of course, on Amazon. When Fred Ertl, Sr. founded the company in Dubuque, Iowa over 70 years ago, I wonder if he ever imagined how popular the die-cast models, made right here in Iowa, would become. Red, yellow, blue, or green these model toys would become important to future farmers around the world.

What is it about a tiny tractor that is so compelling to youngsters who dream of farming? Is it the attention to detail? Is it the way the toy vehicle moves mimicking the driving patterns of their larger counterparts? Or maybe it’s the possibility of having an entire collection that can be farmed with, rain or shine in playrooms and basements?

Toy tractors in 1:16, 1:32, 1:43, 1:64 and 1:87 scale.

A young farmer’s collection can come in many sizes. It all depends on the scale.

ERTL® Toys Scale, How it works

  • 1:16 scale is the old-reliable of the die-cast toy line. When Fred Ertl Sr. started creating die-cast toys in his home in 1947 this was the scale that he created. 1:16 scale means that the toy is 1/16th as large as the real machine. For example if an 8320 tractor is 16-feet long the reproduction will be 1-foot long.
  • 1:32 scale is slowly becoming the new star of the die-cast toy line. More economical than the larger 1:16 scale the 1:32 scale is starting to grow in popularity. 1:32 scale means that the toy is 1/:32nd as large as the real machine. For example if an 8320 tractor is 16-feet long the reproduction will be 6-inches long.
  • 1:64 scale is the versatile scale. With its inexpensive prices, small size and light weight these toys can go anywhere. Some people who purchase the 1:16 of 1:32 scale toys for play at home also purchase these toys. Many consumers realize that these are a great size for travel or even to take along on social events where the little ones will need something to keep them entertained. 1:64 scale means that the toy is 1/64th as large as the real machine. For example if an 8320 tractor is 16-feet long the reproduction will be 3-inches long.

So, for farming enthusiasts young and old alike, nothing can beat the feeling of unwrapping the latest addition and adding it to their collection.

Toy Tractor Scales Guide

Toy Tractor Scales Explained

The key thing to remember when trying to figure out scales is the lower the number after the colon the bigger the size of the toy.

Tractors & Accessories 1:16 Scale

Tractor: 30 x 20 x 20 cm
People: 10 cm high
Cow: 18 x 11 x 4.5 cm 

This is the largest size for tractors. They are big and chunky, mainly made byBruderorBritains Big Farm, from good quality plastic, with lots of trailers and other accessories available too. There is a special range oftractors for toddlers from Bruder too, calledRoadmax, which are the only ones recommended for children under 3. They have specially rounded edges, soft tyres and no bits to get broken off.

Tractors & Accessories 1:32 Scale

Tractor: 20 x 7 x 10 cm
Cow 8.5 x 5 x 2 cm

This is the most popular size and has the largest stock. This size can have smaller bits on it, such as wing mirrors - so not ideal for toddlers. The tractors and other farm vehicles are mainlyBritains Farmyard 1:32andSiku Farmer 1:32, of whichSikuis the more robust, both are die-cast metal and plastic. The animals are mainlyBritainsandKids Globe. And the farm buildings areBrushwood, which are made right here in Britain, andKids Globe, which are German, both are wooden and great quality.

Tractors & Accessories 1:50 Scale

Tractor: 11 x 7 x 4cm

This is a fabulous new size of toy tractors, trailers and other farm accessories. They are an ideal size for children's hands. Bigger than the Matchbox or Hot Wheels size but smaller than the more traditional Siku or Britains 1:32 scale tractors. Because it is relatively new the choice is more limited than in other scale ranges, but manufacturers are slowly designing more and more each year in this scale. There are nowmulti-purpose farm buildings available to keep your 1:50 tractors in, and you can use the smaller1:87 cowsor even the1:32 calvesin the buildings too.

Tractors & Accessories 1:87 Scale

Tractor: 6 x 4 x 3 cm

This size is similar to Hotwheels or Matchbox cars and mostly made bySiku. It includes an incredible range of tractors, trailers and accessories. Harry has quite a collection of these farm vehicles, which are kept in aTractor Ted Rucksack, perfect for taking on long car journeys or away for weekends. It's important to note that there is some variation in this range, for simplicity we sometimes state that accessories are '1:87 scale', so if you're buying something where the exact scale is very important - like a model railway - docheck with usso we can advise.

Tractors & Trailers - Micro (1:128)

Tractor:  4.2 x 2.1 x 2.5 cm (yes tiny!)

These tractors and trailers are 'micro' size. They are 1:128 scale, (smaller than Matchbox) and are the smallest ones we do. Please note they won't fit the 1:87 scale vehicles.
