Sad to here they will go to auction and you are right,as non runners, they probably won't bring much.
A few years ago a friend called me and asked if I would help help get some tractors running and help him sell them. He told me he had brain cancer and they gave him less than a year to live and he didn't want to see his wife have to have everything go to auction. He offer to pay me a present from the sales. I told him I would be happen to help out but wouldn't accept any money. He had about 16 tractors. Got most running and sold before his death. I did offer to buy one of his tractors from the family after he past. They would only accept half my offer. They wanted to give me something for helping out. His son came in from California and I help sell the rest of the tractors and equipment.
The old 2n I bought from him will always reminded me of our friendship and the time we spent together working on old tractors. It will always be "Mike's tractor" I'm just taking care of it for him.
