1956 John Deere 520
May 21, 2012
Fastline tractor of the month Texas edition.
This 1956 John Deere 520 is owned by Tommy Journeay, Angleton, TX. It was restored by Bryan Brown, Bay City, Texas.
The John Deere 520 was purchased new in 1956 by the late A.L. Frizzell of Rosharon, Texas and was used exclusively for row crop farming, mainly corn and cotton. His grandson, Tommy Journeay of Angleton, Texas, inherited the tractor and used it in his farm operation in Brazoria County, Texas. Bryan Brown, Frizzell’s great-grandson, restored the tractor in 2011. The tractor is now used for shows and parades and has become part of the family’s antique tractor collection.
