The thousands of items that bear farm tractor company logos—from Minneapolis-Moline match-books to John Deere dinner plates—take center stage in this richly illustrated celebration of farm tractor collectibles.
Whatever brand you fancy, you'll find it inside the pages of Farm Tractor Collectibles. The various sections detail the collectibles particular to the giants of the industry—Allis-Chalmers, Case, Caterpillar, Ford, International Harvester, John Deere, Minneapolis-Moline, Massey, and Oliver—and include a mini-history of each brand. The final chapter features collectibles of the "orphan" manufacturers, covering the pieces tied to the hundreds of tractor builders that no longer exist.
More than 250 stunning color and black and white photographs depict favorites, including scale models, pedal tractors, literature, watch lobs, tools, and much more.
Written by farm tractor collectible experts, each chapter offers a blend of great information and beautiful photography. With a foreword by noted humorist Roger Welsch and a brief price and value guide, Farm Tractor Collectibles provides an unprecedented overview of the mem-oribilia farm tractor fanatics crave.
