I brought an old Ford and the id plate is missing. Tried looking up the 3 stamp numbers behind the starter but no luck. Top number is 6B24B. Middle number is 35022G. Bottom number is C135848. I attached pics to help, I hope. Hope to refurbish and use it for light work. Can anyone help with year and model?

Howdy 23aRacher, welcome to the tractor forum. Below is my translation of your tractor's numbers.

Manufacture date code 6B24B - February 24th, 1966. Day shift.

Model 35022G - Ford 3000 series (Ford 3500), Industrial chassis, Gasoline engine, PTO transmission driven 540 rpm, 4X4 speed manual reversing transmission.

S/N C135848 - Made in USA. Serial number is consistent with early 1966 manufacture

Thank you so much Big T! This thing has been driving me nuts! Now I can start fixing it.

The model # of your tractor is a 3500.

I looked very closely at your photos and wonder if you cleaned the numbers completely? It looked as if one of the numbers you copied could have been wrong and another might have had an additional number. You might consider a can of carb cleaner, a welders wire brush and a clean rag. Then reread all of your numbers? John
