We will see if this works like I think it will.

Don sent me his dealer information and I entered it into google maps to put it into context. There are a few hiccups with it but
they will hopefully get ironed out. The attached link should take you to the map. There will be several check boxes on the left
side. You need to only check the first 3 -> "Case Dealer Map Data" "Wisconsin" & "Wyoming." The others below are duplicates and
will be removed at some point.

Thanks for sending your information my way Don.
We can work on the Canadian dealers at some point as well if you would like.

Your link didn't work for some reason. It's fun to poke the balloons to get a little information about that towns Case dealerships. My 300RN came from Adams, WI. The closest dealer was in Friendship. I wonder if they were still in business in 1956 when the 300 was built? I could order a build card, but I found that a lot of small dealers ordered their tractors from a larger dealer, then sold and serviced by the small dealership. I found this out when I got a build card for one of the 400's I owned. The build card stated that the tractor was shipped to Barneveld Implement. The original owner purchased the tractor from Klar Implement in Platteville, WI. Dad told me that the Case company wanted their dealers to carry a larger inventory than a lot of dealers could afford. They stayed in business by servicing the older implements they had sold before Case wanted them to carry the big inventory, and if a customer wanted a new tractor the smaller dealer would purchase one from a larger dealer that carried the bigger inventory. Sorry this got to be a long posting.

Cool map. At least one Virginia Dealer is missing. Swift Tractor in Oilville Virginia. Sold Case and New Holland in the 1970s at least. Not sure when they went out of business. Left for College in 1978, then to work for thee Navy. I know sometimes in the 1980's/90s they went out of business and everything went at auction.

So there's a chance my 300 was sold in Friendship. I'll have to take a closer look at the tractor to see if there is a shadow of a dealers sticker on it. Thanks for that bit of information.

Thanks to everyone for the work in this. If you seek corrections, I have one. Jos. Pohl & Sons Marine ILL. was in the small town of Marine, IL Madison county. That's in southern Illinois 25 or so miles east of St. Louis Mo. It was my families go to Case dealer, in what seems like a million years ago. Again, thanks to Don and everyone for doing this.

I don't remember the sellers name, but do remember where he lived. He was located on 10th Lane off of county M south east of Adams His place was the first place on the right when turning onto 10th Lane.

Was the sale just lately? Our local club raffled off a 300rn case last fall and the winner was a local man.The tractor had new back tires installed on back and seemed to run very well
Peterson was his last name

A hickup I noticed is a Minnesota listing on Grand Forks, ND.

Also the one I sent to Don R was Cando, ND dealer and they sold Chevrolet cars and trucks too if you want to add that.

A super job with this. Thanks a million.

Ron

I am sure there is more work to be done, but our Dealership and several others in our area are missing here on, and around the US Rt. 20 corridor of central NY.
Pretty neat, thanks

In the 60's the dealership in Marion Kansas was called Longhofers, I believe.

The tires weren't new, and it had car tires on the front. The previous owner bought the 300 because he wanted the loader off of it. He was going to put the loader on a Minneapolis Moline he bought from his grandfathers estate. I think his first name might have been Corey.
