The meeting of two legends brought excitement to the opening of the 2010 Commodity Classic trade show in Anaheim, Calif., Thursday afternoon. World-famous automotive designer Chip Foose and John Deere unveiled a one-of-a-kind John Deere 4020 tractor that was redesigned in hot rod style.
Foose gave the tractor a complete cosmetic redesign, says David Jones, Deere creative marketing team lead in an exclusive showing to AgWeb on Thursday morning. The mechanics of the engine were fully restored, but it is the same basic engine that was on the tractor originally built in 1970.
The tractor will be on display at selected John Deere dealerships until June during more than 60 Drive Green Tractor Experience events. Following the cross country tour that ends on June 30, 2010, the tractor will be awarded to one winner. You can sign up to win the tractor at any local John Deere dealership in the United States.
