The Cecil and Betty Demaray’s lifetime antique tractor collection. Cecil Demaray worked as a Tool & Die shop leader and Betty worked as a telephone operator when they purchased their 80-acre farm in the Burnips, Michigan area in 1970. Betty managed the farm animals and produce during the day and together
they managed the farm when Cecil arrived home from his day job. Cecil started out with a John Deere MT with a one-bottom plow and spent many hours in the seat of multiple tractors throughout the years. He was proud the day he could say he graduated up to a six-bottom plow by the late 1970’s! As his family and operation
grew, his children became involved, so there obviously needed to be more than one tractor!
As the years passed, they retired from farming, but Cecil and Betty continued to grow the tractor collection to upwards of forty plus antique tractors. Cecil and Betty also enjoyed being involved in antique tractor clubs, where they participated in making replacement antique tractor parts so the old iron could be restored for the next generations of tractor enthusiast.
Auctioneers note: It is our honor to conduct this auction of antique tractors and related items for the Demaray family. Cecil and Betty’s passion for antique farm tractors was strong and that passion extended to the tractor club and tractor enthusiast family. Please join us for this fantastic auction and help us find new homes for the tractors that the Demaray’s rescued and loved. More information
and many more photos will be available on our website as the summer progresses. Call, text or email anytime for more information.
