Hi, Folks.
A look into the past of a Cat dealership that may no longer exist.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Thanks for posting, unfortunately the building and the dealership no longer exist. Have seen the Foley tractor dealership logo surviving on a few tractors though. I will try to learn more, Mike.

Wasn't Foley over on Rt. 22 in New Jersey, if I recall. I believe they are still in business, but in a new location not far away, I think. I remember going down there from our farm in NW Jersey to get parts for our old, old D6 used to build and maintain our trench silo.

My ex 66 pull grader had Foley decals underneath. Made me wonder how on earth it ended up in California. JM

Deas link ends with Colfax Washington. Does that mean anything?

There are currently 11 Foley dealerships in KS and 4 in MO. Some of the KS dealerships have been there well over 50 years.
I am sure the dealerships were probably there in the 40's as that was the beginning of a huge dam building spree in KS beginning with Kanopolis lake near Salina KS.
