    Your tractor appears to be a '62 to '64 model with a 4 cylinder engine. The newer 3 cylinder 4000s starting in '65 had different sheet metal. You can see parts manuals here: https://webparts.pvassociates.net/cnh/webparts/main.php. More information on the base model 4000 is here: TractorData.com Ford 4000 tractor information. Your tractor is the Low Center of Gravity (LCG) variant, which was used by a lot of highway departments back in the day. HTH.

    That tractor is 1964 or earlier as it precedes the line introduced in September, 1964 which featured 3-cylinder engines. Given its age and the fact that it has a Select-O-Speed trans I'd think twice or thrice as it could be an expensive restore. Being gas, the carburetor float restricts sideslopes to 17 degrees.

    Well it seems we have made a deal and the old Ford will have a new owner. Glad to see it hopefully put to use or parted out. Thanks everyone for all the data and assistance! This is a great forum because of all the helpful folks!

    good luck to the new owner.. as it was a sos machine.. and had sat.. \

    ps.. if it won't start and you have to drag it up on a trailer, make sure you throw the traction disconnect so the rear wheels will roll.. otherwise, the trans is locked if the engine ain't running...
