All of this is very interestng stuff too me. Thanks so much for the info ET, ecclap, JDChris, and for initiating the post Richard. I don't own even a piece of a GP, but I still find the history and the details interesting. Too bad there isn't more info that has survived from branch houses, dealers, etc. Even so, I think it's very lucky that the amount of info that has survived, did.
The heat codes (yours Richard, 1-23-31) and case casting numbers (C300R, C1733R) are very telling as to when a tractor was likely first built. If you other guys haven't checked yours, you should do so.
So Chris, was yours originally one of the crossovers or no? Very cool history any way you look at it.
I think a nicely restored GPWT Overhead Steer is one of the coolest looking unstyled JD's there is. Looks like a GPWT ran into the axx end of a prototype model A : )
Would like to own one if I ever win the lottery.
