1943 John Deere Model B "Styled" Tractor. In 1939
the Model B was redesigned by Henry Dreyfuss. Grills were added in
front of the radiator and the sheet metal became "styled".
Electric starting and lights became available as an option.
In 1941 the engine was changed again slightly, and the transmission
was modified to include six forward speeds. Maximum engine power
output was 24.6 h.p. at the draw-bar and 27.6 h.p. at the pully. About
140,000 of the "Early Styled" Model B tractors were built.
