In December of 2017 Toy Farmer announced that Ertl would be producing a special 1/16 scale AC 440 to commemorate our 40th anniversary year of 2018. Just 2,500 were ordered. Those tractors were delivered late in 2018 to those who had preordered them. Toy Farmer also ordered four gold models, three of which would be auctioned on eBay in September and October of 2019. The fourth gold tractor was not sold at that time.
In late 2021 TOMY/Ertl offered Toy Farmer the opportunity to co-sell the AC 50th Anniversary of the 440. 2,500 of these tractors were ordered, which featured, dual tires and rims, a revised grill, and late styled graphics and paint scheme. The pre-ordered tractors were shipped this past August. Toy Farmer was also given the exclusive opportunity to buy four gold tractors.
These four gold tractors will be offered for sale over the next four weeks and on the 5th week we will offer for sale the last gold 40th Anniversary tractor, which was not offered in 2019.
