The Straight Story is undoubtedly right up there at the top of my favorite movies. It's not all about the '66 110, but life and circumstances of how some people deal with them.
Richard Farnsworth and Sissy Spacek did a great job in the movie. Very believable true story without too much Hollywood enhancement. I'm betting you will watch it more than once if you can find a copy.

I just watched the 2-minute trailer and it appears that he started out driving not a 110, but something red, in the end he was on the 110.

That is hilarious! Was the movie funded by Deere marketing perhaps?

That was one of the funniest parts! I think the red one was a Roof brand.

After reading the wiki article, I figured out the 3 units (assuming it wasn't NOS) that he could've gotten from Texas Equipment Company, either a GT262, 325, GT325, or whoever typed the wiki page mistyped 17hp.
Yes that's the type of stuff I research. :LOL:

Depends on if it was given to him in ‘94 or ‘95/later
