I have a 1963 John Deere 45 with a cab, with a 10ft platform and 2 row Corn Head model 210.

Combine last year with it, (just for fun).

You can get some parts for it, but most times I need to call a slavage yard for parts.

My neighbor has one and still uses it. No cab, 10ft platform and two row corn head. I can remember the corn going through the scour-kleen was loud enough to hurt your ears after a while. I think his was from the late 50's or early 60's.

I used one as a kid also, It was gramps and I remember it having variable speed. Also I remember the header height control was on the steering pedestal. His also had a cab, but I remember it was still very dusty as we usually left the windows open and the door wired open for air movement.

My dad's first self propel was a 45 that he bought when he started farming on his own in the fifties. It was a small but not the smallest machine that John Deere built. Two row corn head with a 10' grain platform. I'm pretty sure it had six cylinder engine with a three speeds forward. I was old enough to run it for a couple of years. Strictly low gear in good wheat. Ours had a cab but no A/C. I was sure glad when Dad got a 55. It didn't have air either but you could make a little better time. I think the 45s stayed in the line up until Deere came out with the 3300, 4400, etc. series.HJ
