Wish I could say I was the owner! I would love one, but these miniatures bring more than the original full size engines  :o

The original owner worked at the John Deere factory in Waterloo, IA and sold it as a pile of parts to the current owner in 1988. The builder also had three 6hp John Deere E’s ($$$$$) for awhile, still has one.

Here’s some of the full sized E’s on display in 6, 3 & 1-1/2HP. I heard the owner has $9k into the first big one  :o
