The John Deere Model D was a popular tractor with farmers. The D had the longest run of any model of John Deere tractor, the styled and unstyled versions ran from March 1, 1923, until July 3, 1953. In 1939 the popularity of rubber tires was such that the decision to switch the Model D to rubber as standard equipment was made and steel wheels were now an option. The last 92 Model D's were assembled in the roadway beside the plant, and thus are nicknamed "Streeters." Our 1939 John Deere Model D Tractor is beautifully handmade out of tin. It features many intricate details such as rolling wheels, seat, axles, shaft, frame, steering wheel, chimney, radiator, and more. Proudly display this model anywhere you like and it will surely make a conversational piece. A must-have for the collector and enthusiast!
The John Deere Model D tractor was introduced in 1923 and became the first tractor built, marketed, and named John Deere. It replaced the Waterloo Boy in the company's product line. In the mid-1920s, a farmer could obtain a Model D for about a thousand dollars. Deere and Company donated both this Model D tractor and also a Waterloo Boy tractor to the Smithsonian Institution in 1966. The serial number of the Smithsonian's Model D is 30940; it weighs over two tons. The Model D competed with McCormick-Deering, Hart-Parr, Rumely, and other tractors.
