John Deere Model D Tractor – $185,000
The first on our list of “10 Prices For Vintage Farm Tractors You Need To See” is the John Deere Model D Tractor coming in about $185,000. This 1923 tractor by John Deere marked the year where everything changed for the company. For starters, the two cylinder side-by-side motor was completely new and was designed to work with the new chain drive system developed by the company. Of course, the track itself known for its spoked flywheel, affectionately becoming known as a Spoker D. In 1926 a two cylinder transmission would be introduced, but 1923 was a definite hallmark year for John Deere.
If you own one of these tractors you are very familiar with the distinct ladder style radiator and fabricated front axle which set the tractors apart and made them unique. The reason for the design change was simple. The plains in the western and central portions of United States were starting to become the major hubs of production for both the country and the world. That meant better and bigger tractors with more power would be required to turn the soil of those rich, fertile fields. Lucky for us, John Deere responded with their Spoker D and the rest is history.
