I actually bought this old tractor over the phone from a guy up in Michigan. I was looking for a JD GP and had a 1954 JD Model 50 I wanted to trade. So I asked him if he would consider a trade, and he said yes. So we met up in the middle of Illinois along Hwy 80 at a Walmart store. We checked out each others tractor and decided it was a good deal for both of us. We switched tractors and went on our merry way. One week later I had this old GP showing at the Iowa State Fair. That’s where these pictures were taken.
