John Deere Model A (1934-1952)
Most tractor historians credit John Deere with popularizing the tractor in North America, and for good reason.
The early John Deere row crop tractors were very popular with farmers, and still to this day you will see these popular classics chattering down old farm roads with their unmistakable 2-cylinder engine sound.
The John Deere model A featured a 24 horsepower engine (at the belt) and weighed in at 3,783lbs.
Original price for a model A was $2,400 in 1952 ($23,000 adjusted for inflation as of 2020).
