What the heck do "Styled" and "Unstyled" mean as far as the tractors? How did the terms come about?

Greg,

Styled refers to the sheet metal covering the steering shaft & column. Unstyled tractors look like they're missing.

Guess that shows my fondness for styled Deeres.

I voted styled, as what I've got is a 51B. The older unstyled with spoke wheels, depicted in your first picture, is what an antique tractor should look like. What could be a better tractor experience than going on a Sunday ride on a tractor like that. Of course, just standing beside a good running two cylinder John Deere and listening to it idle is music to my ears.

Unstyled for me they are the best looking tractors.

I like styled. Everything should have some style. Olivers had a lot of style, and so did Farmalls. It is what identifies each brand at a glance... unstyled is form following function at it's minimum, and they all look similar. But no one will mistake a Deere styled "M" for a Farmall "M", even if both were painted green or red.

I've always liked the styled versions. Add to the beautiful lines of a true americian work horse a bit of green and yellow paint along with the signature johnny popper sound and this old farm boy really gets excited.

I prefer unstyled. I guess because it symbolizes an older tractor.

And Joe, you can't mistake a Unstyled F-12 Farmall for an unstyled John Deere B either. Of course, I do remember you telling me that you were blind in one eye and couldn't see out of the other :furious: :furious:
