John Deere Model AWH
RUSTY ACRES RANCH
1938 Model Year
Thia Tractor is one of the 27 unstyled AWH's built.
I bought it in the late 1991 from a collector who lost interest.
It was partially disassembled by the previous owner. I have had
it under covered storage since that time. On May 27, 2008, Matt
and I pulled it into the shop to start it's restoration.

Above two photos when we pulled it into the shop on
May 27, 2008. This is what it looked like before we started. All
of the parts that are not on the tractor were removed by the previous
owner and are on the shelf with, hopefully, not too much missing.
It did have 9.5-40 tires on it when I bought it. I had previously
removed them to use on my BWH-40 tractor. The 9.5-40's are too
small for an AWH, anyway, and I have a set of nice 12.4-40 tires
that I will install on this tractor.
