Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. reports that a John Deere tractor regularly used by Elvis on his Mississippi ranch and at his home at Graceland has been fully restored and is on public display at the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum at Graceland in Memphis.

The restoration is a cooperative effort between Elvis Presley Enterprises and Deere & Co. Students at Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia, Miss., restored the tractor with guidance from Deere.

Elvis acquired his John Deere 4010 tractor with the purchase of a Mississippi ranch in 1966. It later was used at Graceland, which replaced the tractor recently with a new model and decided to prepare the old tractor for display.

In celebration of this new exhibit, a special edition, die-cast version of the tractor will go on sale in November at authorized John Deere dealers nationwide.
