According to Elvis.com, the John Deere 4010 tractor was restored by students at Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia, Mississippi, with guidance from John Deere. The 4010 tractor owned by Elvis was one of four models in John Deere’s “New Generation of Power” – a four- and six-cylinder tractor line that the company introduced in 1961 and that helped John Deere become the world’s leading manufacturer of agriculture equipment.

The Elvis Presley Automobile Museum is located at the national historic landmark Elvis Presley’s Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee.

A special-edition, die-cast version of the tractor will go on sale in November at authorized John Deere dealers nationwide, on ShopElvis.com and at Graceland. This special model will include a 46A loader, an accessory rarely found on die-cast collectibles.
