This is my family’s 1935 John Deere B.
My grandfather, Vaclav Hejl, purchased this 1935 John Deere B used in 1947. It was the first tractor my grandfather ever owned. My dad, Francis, was 8 years old in 1947, and this John Deere B is the tractor he learned to drive over 75 years ago. My dad and I worked on this tractor together the Summer and Fall of 2021, and she’s running like a champ again.
