Chip Foose 4020 Unveiled by John Deere

Chuck Zimmerman

Last week John Deere unveiled a very unique promotional tractor designed by Chip Foose.

It’s a 1970 John Deere 4020. The tractor will be given away to one winner as part of the John Deere Big Buck Promotion. You may find rules to enter on the John Deere website.

Posing with the tractor is Rick Tolman, CEO of the National Corn Growers Association.

John Deere Chip Foose 4020I interviewed Chip right after the unveiling. He talks about how he got into automobile design and this project in particular. You can listen to that interview below.

You can find out more details about the project by reading the post about the unveiling on our Precision Pays website.

  1. I have always admired Chip’s creative work with cars and trucks, and his talent is unquestionable. However, as a life-long Deere collector, I was horribly disappointed in this project. Chip took a classic 4020 nad made it into a freakin lawn tractor/model. Sorry Chip, no more tractors please.

  3. I think it’s great that Deere went out on a limb and did something different. Great job Chip on making a great old tractor look like a completely different new, exciting, and unique machine. Why wouldn’t you try to bring new customers into Deere’s customer base? I’m looking forward to the Foose Gator next!
