1941 John Deere B with Patriotic Lineage
Sep 26, 2011
Tractor cover of the month, Fastline Texas edition.
Owned and restored by John D. Flippen, Axtell, Texas.
John is just the third owner of the tractor. The first owner bought it in 1941, fought in World War II and died in combat. His dad sold it to its second owner, who in turn sold it when his son didn’t return home from combat. John bought it in 2006, still in its original condition with the owner’s manual. He restored it with the help of friends and family. He hopes his children will carry on the passion of restoring old tractors and passing along their stories.
