1956 John Deere 420W Tractor
In 1837, a midwestern blacksmith named John Deere, fashions a
polished steel plow to aid farmers to cut furrows into the sticky
midwestern soil. For almost the next 100 years, the John Deere
company will be a plow manufacturer. As farming expands and the
need for reliable mechanization brought on by larger size farms
showing promise of a more profitable business model, John Deere
Company purchases the Waterloo Boy tractor company, and as they say
the rest is history.
Serial number 82264 matches to a 1956 420W John Deere Tractor shown
in the photographs. Pristine Deere green covers this tractor from
top to bottom. Contrasting John Deere yellow, also pristine,
highlights the steel wheels, hood logo, and model surrounds. Tires
are like new and show no signs of wear. True to its W designation
front axle width can be adjusted, earning the designation of "row
cropper". Handsome clamshell fenders protect the operator, and an
original chrome JD logo is perched on the front grille area.
Footrests, and pedals, shifters, and levers, all show virtually no
sign of wear.
