This John Deere model GM, serial number 13024, is considered first day of production. Built February 25, 1942 and was shipped to Spring Valley, MN., on February 27, 1942. It was found ten miles from there in a salvage yard and subsequently restored. These particular tractors went from an unstyled "G" to a styled "G" during WWII, in December of 1941. Because of the cost of development, tooling and manufacturing, a modest price increase was not possible due to government regulations. So, the model "G" became the "G- Modernized", or the "GM", with the designation only on the seat post. The GM began with serial number 13000 on the plates. The GM was built from February 1942until March, 1947, with the last serial number GM 22112. In March of 1947, the model GM was dropped and it went back to a straight G. Information furnished by owner Wilbur Schwartzel, of Sparta, WI.
