“This tractor was purchased new by my grandfather in 1955 and was used on the family farm. My uncle did an overhaul on it when he was in high school but it was later replaced by newer equipment and parked in the barn. After sitting in the barn for 30 years I pulled it out and completed a full restoration on this John Deere 50 during my senior year of high school. I competed in the tractor restoration contest through FFA at the major ag mechanic shows in Texas and managed to place quite well.”

1942 John Deere B
Original, one family owned tractor. Tractor was purchased by my Grandfather in 1942, just after the start of the war. Grandfather, father and uncle farmed with it in New Haven Michigan until the mid 1960’s then parked in a barn. Grandfather died in 1972, and my uncle moved it to another barn in 1992. It was rough, but all there. In 2008 my two young sons and I retrieved it and restored it as a family project. Four generations of family have loved this tractor.

“Enjoying a winter evening with a Farmall M and John Deere A.”
I always hate to pass up the opportunity for a great sunset photo, and I just happened to have the 1951 G out of the shed on the evening I took this picture. The light was just perfect for only a couple of minutes, and shortly after I snapped this picture, all of the beautiful highlights in the clouds, as well as the rainbow were gone. I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to not only take this picture, but also to share it with all of my great fellow Steiner customers in your 2017 calendar!
