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.

This very complete original restored tractor is powered by a 2-cylinder Johnny Popper" 113 comes engine that that produces 28hp. 2- 4.25" x 4" bore and stroke pistons, have a compression ratio of 7:1 and reach a maximum rated RPM of 1,850. This power plant is liquid cooled, and an oil bath air cleaning system is noted. A 6-volt electrical system is standard with this model. Dual touch-o-matic hydraulics power a full 3-point hitch A 4-speed forward and 1-speed reverse transmission offers a full range of power and speed options. Front and rear PTO hookup shafts are present on this model.

Rubber gaskets, hoses, and bushings are all like new, as is the whole presentation of this 62+ year old piece of farm machine history. The gentleman farmer will cry out to you when you lay eyes on this absolutely beautiful tractor example.
