Tractor Story – 1953 John Deere 40C

Hi Suzette,
Here is the original image of my husband Roger’s 1953 John Deere 40C. He restored it in 2010-11. This crawler came from California, and had been a “future project” of a good friend. I have included a photo of when he first started working on it. I don’t think I took earlier photos.


Thank you,
Beckey Sherer
