C. J. Perry & Son

8401 Ridge Rd

Gasport, NY

Wheel Horse and John Deere dealer combined from the late 60's to 1989.

Deere told the owner to stop selling Wheel Horse or loose the Deere franchise around 1988. They consequently stopped selling horses early 1989. (The franchise was picked up by another local Kubota dealer) Deere pulled the plug on the dealership franchise in the late 1990's and they subsequently closed. The building now houses foodstuff wholesaler and retailer.

Ok I would like to add to this list Rolle Bros. in Riverhead Long Island New York . I purchased a gt 1800 brand new in 1984 from them and at that time was amazed at the amount of wheel horses on hand there. About 8 years ago I looked up the last Rolle Brother in the phone book, called him and we met. He lived 25 minutes away. He told me that they where at one time the largest W.H. Dealer on the east coast. I have no reason to not believe this man. Any one out on Long Island that knows W.H.s can attest to this I am sure. He told me that they sold 5 420 LSE's. They retired and closed up about 1995 . I also remember they had a parts room that was huge , most of this was sold to the near by dealer Carl's Equipment also in Riverhead they are still in business. Thank you for reading my story of WH's in my part of the world !

Tegner Implement Sales at 30817 Euclid Ave, Willoughby, OH 44094

 

No phone number - it is out of service.  But, you can still get a hold of them by stopping by, leaving your needs and phone number on the door, and they will call you back. Nice guys.

I've only lived in Kentucky for ten years, so I don't know anything about the dealer where my tractor came from.  The address is an old empty gas station.

So I grew up in central PA and here's what I remember.  

 

Penn Woods in Pleasant Gap, PA - still in business, but no longer selling outdoor equipment.

McCoys in Roaring Spring, PA - still in business selling Kubotas.  

 

There was also a dealer in the Spring Mills, PA area, my grandfather bought a 520-8 there brand new.  I'll ask what the name of the dealer was and update.

I can't find much info on mine.. My B-100 Auto, Trailer and Deck came from "Kinville Sales & Service, Kinville N.H." I never could find any information on that one though.

Neil did you buy that?  I saw that pic on ebay a few weeks back along with some other random black & whites.  I almost bought it just to put in here!  Glad you posted it.  I'd love to find more of those kind of pictures, but they're probably only going to come from old dealerships themselves, or maybe from a newspaper clipping about a store opening or something... people generally didn't take this kind of picture back in the day.   As a side note... check out the snow tires on that nearest car!  Wonder if anyone still does "snow tires" anymore!?

 

Thanks for keeping this thread going.  I've updated the original post with the latest submissions, as well as several new (old) ones I've found ads for!

 

I'm going to add a quick vote.... do you want me to re-arrange these and have them displayed by state?

I hear of a guy in the South Bend area(home of Wheelhorse) by the name of Gene Levan who had a dealership and sold the bldg but kept all the parts and he has lots of parts and NOS as well as tractors you can pick parts from. I'm still trying to find him but was told he lives on US 23 not far from Ireland. Anybody got any ideas where he is?
