Click on the tractor ID/History button. You will learn all about your old ford tractors. Enjoy!
Welcome bundyal38! As sixbales mentioned, Smiths is a great place to learn about the differences between the old ford tractor models. Get some photos up when you get a chance.
Yet another welcome! I for one am looking forward to those photos!
Thanks guys,heres some pics.I had to take the sheet metal off to get to the gas tank.The gas line was loose on the bottom of the tank.
Heres a few more.
I'm thinking a 1963 4000 series with the 172 cu in gas engine. I'll try and do a little more research.
Thx Pogobill,Im leaning in that direction too but the serial # doesnt match up.This tractor is a bit taller than my other on also.
That's a 1955 Ford 900 series wide front tractor. The serial number fits a 1955. Note that's a 4 bottom plow behind it. That explains the wheel weights (and probably loaded tires too).
1=Ag or Industrial produced after 1963.
1= 4 speed with PTO or Hydraulics.
The 5 suffix=Wide Front Extended Wheelbase- Special Order on 4000 tractors.
1963 Serial number 11948 - 38930, this one is 25962 = 1963.
I saw the light!! You guys are pretty good! I must admit, looking at the grille from the backside reminded me of an early Ford 4000 grille, but I read the model code as 411C1 - 5. Couldn't translate that. Below is a picture of a Ford 4000 wide front
OK Al Bundy, bring on your next tractor.
The 5 suffix rarely is seen. Creates confusion when researching the serial number.
What you have will be worth some money in the collector market when all the sheet metal is installed and properly painted.
Welcome to the forum! Cheers!
