History

1949 JD Model B

SN 249997

 

This tractor entered the John Deere Warehouse May 27, 1949 and was shipped May 31, 1949 to the Omaha, Nebraska branch with a final destination of Eustis, Nebraska. The tractor was configured as a row crop with a gasoline engine. [1]

 

Rollie Brown of Gothenburg, Nebraska, an expert restorer and collector had restored the tractor giving it a complete overhaul and paint job. I purchased the tractor at auction March 24, 2007, where Rollie sold many restored John Deere tractors. The tractor is in show room condition.
