Silver King Featured At 5th Annual


| May/June 1987


1728 13th St. Monroe, Wisconsin 53566

It was a special weekend- September 5, 6, and 7, 1986- when the 5th annual Pecatonica Valley Antique Days were held at the Lafayette County Fairgrounds in Darlington, Wisconsin. Club members had decided that the Silver King tractor would be the first tractor featured at their show.  

A Ply mouth tractor, the forerunner of the Silver King, and thirteen Silver Kings were displayed in the midst of banners and a nice collection of literature pertaining to Silver Kings. As no two tractors were identical, the display gave everyone who viewed it a good insight into the capabilities and changes made in a tractor that was fairly uncommon in this southern Wisconsin farming region.

Other attractions of the show included a large display of tractors, vintage farm machinery, antique toys, household items and of course, gas engines. What would a show be without them?

Excellent weather, antique displays and demonstrations using machine or horse power along with good old hospitality in a pleasant setting along a gently flowing river made this show another success for everyone involved.
