Model 40 V was a tractor built by Deere to fill a nitch market and most were sold mostly in the southern states. They had a higher ground clearance than most other tractors in the 40 line. The serial number plate on these tractors state "40-V" . This tractor was a one row tractor used in farming bushy crops like tomatoes.
It had the standard three point hitch. Lights, cigarette lighter, and front end weights were popular add-ons.
With only 329 units built, it's the second lowest produced 40. Production on the 40V began in October of 1954 for the 55 model year, with serial # 60001 and continued until October of 1955 ending with #60329.
