Got it for free on the side of the road yesterday. Looks to be a 1966. About and hour of cleaning the contacts, new spark plug, new oil, draining old gas, filter clean and some WD40 on the belts...

Fired it up and just cut with it.

Great find! That's what's nice about the older tractors. Doesn't take much to get running usually.

Another fun part of this? Service and sales directory listing countries that dont even exist anymore and one listing a the service person as someone who I know from my home town, or rather his father.

I was going to sell it but decided to keep it.

Shooting for July 1st next year for my 110 to be completed, plan is to start on this thereafter.

So Ford just slapped the logo on the side?
That has happened quite a lot - Simplicity, Roper, Jacobsen, built a lot of tractors for other companies including Allis Chalmers, Montgomery Ward, Sears, Homelite, and yes, Ford.

Either way it’s a solid machine.
