Dr. Dave's Tractor Restoration and Parts
Welcome to Dr. Dave's Restoration Page. Over the years I have collected and restored several John Deere 40, 420, and 430 Series Tractors. It can take a year (taking advantage of time outside normal working hours) to disassemble, repair/rebuild, and paint a tractor to my satisfaction. The following are before/after pictures of several restorations.
John Deere 430 S Standard
John Deere 430 Standard Tractor; as found in Mebane, North Carolina.
John Deere 430 W Row Crop Utility
John Deere 430W painted Industrial Yellow from the factory. Found in North Carolina.
John Deere 430 U Utility
John Deere 435 Diesel
John Deere 435 Diesel with Power Steering, Float Ride Seat, and Remote Hydraulics.
1955 John Deere 40V / Special
Not John Deere, but 2016-2017's project was tractor like. . . a 1970s Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. Do not let the picture fool you. . . everything was removed to a bare frame and rebuilt.
