What is the preferred source to find out the approximate date of manufacture of a John Deere 70? My serial number is 7032476, and the tank says it was made in 1955, but I would like to know how late in 1955. Thanks.

I don't think the date on the tank has anything to do with the date of the tractor. I believe it came from an outside supplier just like the generator did.

Yes, it has the name of the supplier on the tank, so the tank was made in '55, but it didn't get installed in a new tractor chassis until early the following year. I appreciate the input! Hugh

The book I have shows serial numbers 7031300-7043757 to be 1956 model year. I don't have any info that show build dates but you can see where it falls in line with the rest of '56

Thank you very much, my father bought it new, but he passed away twenty years ago and I forgot to ask him when he bought it. It's nice to know that it is from the final year of production. Hugh.
