Selling the Gary L. Miller John Deere tractor collection.
Due to future plans of retirement, I have decided to sell my John Deere tractors, antiques & farm primitives. Art Smith Auctioneers will handle the Live Auction for me. I have enjoyed collecting and restoring these tractors over the years and now it’s time to move on to new adventures. I have had all the tractors professionally restored and stored in my pole barn.
I invite you to attend my Thursday afternoon Auction and thank you in advance for your consideration.
Very best regards, Gary L. Miller
NOTE: A very nice collection of 2 cyl. John Deere tractors!!! Tractors have been professionally restored with new tires, paint and seats! Gary took great pride in his tractors and it shows!!! Most of antiques smalls and farm primitives are from past generations of Gary’s family.
