Here are two tractors that I just finished painting. First is my personal 1964 John Deere 110 3-Speed transmission that I've been working on for a while now. (It was a nut and bolt restoration) Then the John Deere 4020 is a tractor I just finished painting for a customer. I thought I would take some pictures of both of the tractors sitting next to each other. Enjoy! :thThumbsU

Wow! Those look amazing! Its interesting to see two different sizes of the same "styling" next to each other.... THIS is why Deere hired design consultants!
Thanks LTG. Now you know what my "project" has been for the last couple of weeks. HaHa. But I noticed that as well, The hoods and grills have very similar appearances, apparently those design consultants did their respected jobs well!

Very nice. The first thing that comes to mind is the expression "the apple did'nt fall far from the tree". There is something about 110's that I really like, metal seat included.

Are they both painted in the earlier "classic" green (vs.ag green)?

They were actually painted with the John Deere Ag/Ce Green paint, I think it's the light outside that makes the paint look less bright, I took a picture of the 4020 inside and it really looks perfectly shinny. I will try and upload that picture from my phone.

Thanks for all the good comments guys! Thought you might like these pictures.

Oh good, that's a relief. You almost had me thinking that maybe I should paint my '72 140 in Classic! I happen to like Classic Green as well.

No space here for big tractors anymore, but I have to say that your 110 (and 110s in general) strike me as being simple, straightforward, yet rugged little tractors. The more I see of them, the more I lke them.

I happened to see a round fender near me at a nursery that I passed recently. I might just have to stop by...

They are pretty simple to work on actually. This one was totally rebuilt, enigne transmission etc. If only I documented the make over. It looked pretty bad in the beginning I can assure you that. But yes they are pretty rugged tractors and have never let me down. Of course they hold a special place in my life because my Dad and I first rebuilt my John Deere 112 round fender for my first tractor. But I would of course recogmend that you stop and ask about that round fender at the nursery.

No need for you to have documented anything. Your pics, and your word document everything, as far as I am concerned. Your tractor certainly shows all of the time, and effort you've put into it!

I've done the same thing, dragged home a few rusted non-runners, and brought them back to life. My wife has even asked me why I did'nt take "before" pictures! And this is my wife!!:)

Nice too, is the common thread that all of our (various brand) tractors seem to tie us with those who have been known to us, in one way, or another.

Now I'm just trying to figure out, these tractors are of a "100" series, with the 110 having a 10HP engine, with 112s having a 12HP engine?

I think I'll have to stop by the nursery and say hello, as you've suggested.

The first year they came out (1963) the 110 Round Fender had a 7 hp Kohler. In '64, they bumped that to 8 hp. Stayed that way until the last year for Round Fenders (1967).

The 112 Round Fender is the same tractor as the 110, with a larger Tecumseh 10 hp. It was made only in 1966 and 1967.

In 1968, the 110 and 112 were completely redesigned into the "Square Fender" or "Pan Fender" version.
