About this Episode

This tractor is the 100,000th tractor built at the Farmall Plant in Rock Island, Illinois. Cyrus McCormick drove this tractor off the assembly line on April 12, 1930. The tractor was painted silver to mark the occasion. This tractor was never meant to leave the factory, but somehow it ended up in a fence row about 20 miles from the Quad Cities where Ryan Peters purchased it. Ryan shares the story of this one of a kind tractor and his passion for Farmall tractors.
