56 Ford 600

I have a Ford 600 that has 631 stamped as the model number. According to the serial number references, it is a 1956 model.

I have not been able to locate any information about a Ford 631 model.

It does have a three point hitch and PTO which runs contrary to the information about Ford tractors that I have found on the web.

Does anybody know what this 631 model is?

Thanks,
Terry

I checked both those web sites and find nothing about a model 631. They talk about models 640, 641, etc.

There is something odd about that 631 number.

But, Thanks for the info!

Thanks

Ernie:

Thanks for the post. I didn't find that 631 page before.

Now, what puzzles me is that Tractordata says the 631 has no PTO and the tractor we have has a PTO!

Any ideas??

Thanks again for your help!

Terry

The info contradicts itself in a couple places, I found. Maybe the variant breakdown is wrong. One place in the description did say that a 631 did have a pto and 3PH contradicting the variant description. Also interesting, I saw that they have the 631 first production as 1957. Is yours is a '56 model or is 1956 the production date?

Serial number

The serial number is 70273.

The old tractors web site list that number as a 1955 model.

Tractordata.com list the serial numbers for the 631 model and it would be a 1959 model based on their data.

I don't really know.

Thanks,

Terry
