Hi guys my dad just bought a 1972 111 John deere but it didn't have a hood assembly on it and I was wondering if there is somewhere to purchase something like this. We are located in northen Indiana but a web site would work to. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Try this place. They have a lot for the early Deere's

Also a lot of used stuff comes up on ebay for these early tractors. Might be worth a shot.

BTW are you sure on the model? did not know they had that model in that year. Could it be a 110?

The hood is still available from Deere (depending on your serial number) for $340. I can tell you more if the serial number is below 157491, or between 157491 and 190000, or above 190000.

Opps, those numbers are for the 111 available in the 1980s. Thjere is no model 111 from 1972, there was a 110, a 112, a 120?, 140.

It must be the 112 he thought it was the 111 but he did say it could be the 112 he has a 110 and this one has more h.p. than it does. I'll check and see if he can get the serial number off it. thanks

The good news is that you can more easily find a hood for a 112, and since they are fiberglass, they can be repaired with patience. But they are not available new from Deere. However, I believe you can get new decals.

I found an add in our photo ads for a place dealing in all this stuff. So I called him expecting to be jerked around (my history with people in the photo ads) and to my surprise he has side panels grill and hood for $170 + tax and its within an hour of our place. Looks like were going to go shopping on black Friday after all. I don't mind this kind of shopping.

Sounds like a very good price for all those parts. I hope you enjoy your Black Friday" shopping and that it is productive.

a good way to tell a 111 from a 110 or 112 is the hood opens with the grill unlike the 110 and 112 the hood opens up with out the grill moving
