I will admit that my favorite brand is IH but I am definitely not colorblind and love to have variety in my collection. Even though I love to give my diehard John Deere friends a hard time there has always been a Deere I have dreamed about and I finally found it!
Just got home my new to me 1969 first year white engine John Deere 110 Patio Red tractor. It has the original mower deck and even has factory hydraulic lift. Needless to say I'm pretty sure its a RARE tractor. It needs a full restoration and will get it but I couldn't let it go figuring I would never see another. John Deere made the Patio's from 1969 to 1971 and my understanding is that 1969 is the only year they painted it entirely white before starting to paint the engine black to keep the tractors looking nice and make production easier. It has the Kohler 181. Can't wait to get started on the resto.
