Ok an update. I just talked to a good friend of mine that is the brother of the previous owner. He actually picked the tractor up and hauled it from miles city montanna back here to Ohio. Apparently the tractor was in mizzoula montanna from there a friend picked it up in mizzoula and hauled it to miles city, met my good friend who hauled it home for his brother, from whome I purchased it from. My revised question is: how did this thing wind up in mizzoula montanna from being bought by Deere & Webber.? Now what can you add?

Guess I should have clarified something early on, if you didn't already know. Deere & Webber is/was the Minneapolis branch house. The "branch" and the "final destination" are one and the same in this case.
Now............the tractor may have been any of the things already mentioned previously (yard tractor, demonstrator, etc.), owned by the branch for some time, and later sold as used to a dealer in their territory (which Missoula MT is). It may have also just been another tractor in the branch inventory, sold in short order to a dealer anywhere in their territory.
It may also have been sold close to Minneapolis, and later made it's way to Montana by second, third, etc. owners.
Almost anything is possible on how it got to Missoula. To me the key interest would be..............was it once owned and used by the branch, Deere & Webber, for some period of time, and why.
Keep us posted on what you find out, if anything. Maybe repost if some time goes by. I would see if T-C will give you any assistance in checking Archives for any further info. Maybe see if there is anything left of the branch in Minneapolis. Probably would be called a depot or distribution warehouse now. See if you can track it backward anymore, and of course check the tractor over closely for any clues.
This kind of stuff is all very interesting to me.
Don't be let down if it just turns out to be a plain old AW with no particular history. After all it's still a JD and an AW at that : )
