I still have a few more interesting items for the Palmyra municipal auction from late May in the form of motor graders, Austin-Western graders to be exact. I immediately gravitated to one of the oldest machines in the group, a 1961 Super 100 with six wheel drive. This machine was painted in red and came with appeared to be a old fire truck light. Not your typical DPW colors of orange or yellow. It came to the auction by the way of Pendleton, NY. There is probably an interesting story behind the color but damned if I know what it is. Final hammer price on this classic machine was 2,000. Check the video below for a view of the cab with more than enough levers and buttons to go around.
