John Blue Cultivating Tractor

Postby Urbish » Fri Jul 09, 2021 6:47 am

There have been multiple discussions on here regarding the CleBer Oggun, Tilmore, and Tuff Bilt rear engine tractors (similar layout to the Allis Chalmers G). Have any of you heard of a John Blue? One popped up for sale near me (at a serious collector-only price). Apparently only about 200 of them were ever built. They used an IH U60 engine.

I've seen a couple of them, one in Arkansas and the other in North Carolina.

One of those not far from me; about 20 miles to the North. I haven't seen tractor or owner in several years.
