Apps now open for Titan's antique tractor restoration program
DES MOINES, IA — Titan International, Inc. (Titan) is now accepting applications for their annual antique tractor restoration program. National FFA and 4-H student members can register online to qualify for a set of Titan or Goodyear Farm Tire branded antique tractor tires.
Titan has awarded thousands of free tires to student-led tractor restoration projects since 1996. In 2019 students submitted their newly restored tractors to compete in various competitions and fairs around the country. Brayden Evans of the South Hamilton FFA chapter in Iowa is one of the students to benefit from the program and was able to restore his grandfather’s 1967 Farmall.
“This tractor had gone through a fire and the tires were completely fried,” said Evans. “Without the Titan tires the restoration would not have come together the way that it did. I think it’s an awesome program you all put on every year.”
“We are honored to support the many 4-H and FFA students dedicated to these restoration projects,” says Scott Sloan, ag product manager/global LSW for Titan. “Restoring an antique tractor requires a lot of time and meticulous work. It is rewarding to see their finished projects.”
Applications and new guidelines for the 2020 program can be found online at titan-intl.com/antique-tractor-restoration. Qualified projects will be accepted while allocated supplies last. Applications will be reviewed and accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
