    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

    Ed:

    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!

    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,
