This tractor has special significance to owner Gerald Forsythe, as his father purchased it brand-new in 1948. The tractor worked on the Forsythe farm for many years before being immaculately restored and retired to live in Gerald’s extensive collection of red tractors on 28,000-acre farming operation in Marshall, Illinois. Forsythe owns a very successful energy conglomerate, and was part-owner of the Champ Car World Series as well as Forsythe Champion Racing.
