It has been gone a long time now, maybe close to ten years.  That place is abandoned, and all grown up in trees and brush around the house.  Rumor has it there is still a tractor or two in the shed but it is all enclosed so who knows.

Not sure how I missed this one but yes they did have a 1468 for a couple of years, traded it on a new 4440.

im looking for a specifi 8430 john deerewhich i bought brand new back in the fall of 1978 .Had it for 10 years before it was traded in. i always regetted trading that tractor and am trying to track it down . I was taken to the Rietzel Bros auction in the early winter months of 1988 I tried to find info from them but they had got rid of all there old records and couldn't help me. I was hoping some one might have seen it somewhere you would know it when you saw it the air intake was chromed by a freind of mine guarantied to never rust the last 4 digits in the vin number are 6716 hope someone has seen this tractor I would like to get it back and do a restoration on it. Anybody got any info please e mail me at poobler@hotmail.com thanks for reading this Find My John Deere request.    sincerly years gone by
