    Closing in on a 1941 LA John Deere

    I've been trying to locate, locally if possible, a LA JD. There are not many of them for sale in the south. I've found several in the northern states. But a Craigslist want ad gave me a connection for one only 75 miles away. A LA JD was the first tractor my dad ever owned and the first tractor I ever drove. Dad let a slick talker talk him out of it in the late 60's and I remember crying as it rolled down the driveway. Dad has told me that he regretted selling it before it got out of the driveway. I have searched all over for Dad's original tractor but have not been able to find a link to it anywhere. Dad is 80 now and I'm trying to buy one while he still has health to enjoy it.

    According to the owner, JD records show this tractor was produced the day after Pearl Harbor. Going to make a visit one day next week.

    Wayne:

    You will make your Dad's day. Yours too, when you see how happy it makes him. I'm sure your Dad remembers exactly where he was and what he was doing on the day the LA was built.

    Are you going to check on the L&G tractor in the background?

    Yeah, I wish I could get it recorded somehow, he's going to be very surprised. And yes, he remembers Pearl Harbor very vividly.

    As far as the L&G tractor, while I'm there I may make it a package deal offer.

    Little John

    I went and looked at the LA today and bought the tractor. Will be moving it home on Friday. Dad was very excited about it when i called and told him I made the deal. Here's a few shots of it..
