According to John Deere, Elvis frequently enjoyed driving the tractor on his Mississippi ranch after he acquired it in 1966, and it was later used to maintain the grounds at his home in Graceland.
Displayed in its box against a photograph of Graceland, the tractor is equipped with a 46A front loader, an accessory rarely found on die-cast collectible models, says the manufacturer. It also features die-cast front and rear wheels and a movable three-point hitch, a detailed dash and pto levers, and a rear light. Elvis' signature is picked out in gold on the top of the bonnet, and every individual box has an Elvis Presley licensed product holographic sticker and a special collector's insert.
The original tractor is on display at Graceland after being restored at Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia. After Elvis sold his Mississippi property (the Circle G Ranch in DeSoto County), he moved it to Graceland, where it fell into disrepair until the estate contacted the manufacturer about restoring it.
