Lenexa, Kansas – In a departure from his tradition of customizing cars, Overhaulin’ star Chip Foose will customize a 1970 John Deere Model 4020 tractor, which the company will award to the winner of its Big Buck contest.

The contest is open to residents of Canada and the United States. To enter to win the Foose tractor, or one of three John Deere Gators, complete a registration form at any John Deere dealership by June 30, 2010. No purchase or other obligation is required.

“Introduced in 1963, the six-cylinder John Deere 4020 was touted as the new generation of power,” said Barry Nelson, John Deere’s manager of media relations. “With more than 170,000 tractors manufactured until 1972, the 4020 was one of the most popular, widely used and versatile tractor models ever built by John Deere, and the obvious choice for Chip Foose to customize for this promotion. It’s a program that is certain to generate a great deal of excitement not only among farmers, ranchers, property owners and commercial buyers, but with tractor collectors and automotive enthusiasts as well.”
