Industrial Designers Transform Tractor Industry

Birth of the industrial designer signals the rise of tractor design.

First offered in 1938 by Sears, Roebuck & Co., the beautiful Graham-Bradley Model 503 was built for Sears by Graham-Paige Motors Corp., Detroit. Styling was by designer Amos Northrup. Besides the exterior styling, the Model 503 featured electric starting, a 3-point hydraulic lift and a 4-speed belt pulley.
