1958 John Deere 720

Cover tractor of the month Fastline Kansas edition.
Owned by Calvin Shou, Wamego, Kan.
This tractor was restored by Skeet Johnson, Calvin’s grandson. After suffering a stroke in 1991, Calvin lost some of his speech and most of the use of his right side. However, he was able to recover enough to continue farming. In 2000, Skeet took on the challenge of restoring the tractor for his grandfather and when he complete the restoration, he delivered it back to the farm. When Calvin saw the restored tractor he look at Skeet, and with his limited speech he said, “That’s Okay!”
