    The 961 is possibly my favorite of all the older Ford tractors...just love the look of the row crop models, so I've been keeping my eye out for one on Craigslist for a year or so, and the range seems to be pretty broad. Is it gas or diesel? Did it run when it was parked, and will it turn over now? How straight is the sheet metal? Narrow or wide front end?

    I've seen a few that were running, and reasonably solid (faded/worn paint, but not a rust bucket), for $3500 or so.

    I checked one out several years ago. Asking $3600. I passed since it had problems with the 2-stage clutch.

    I was wrong-its a diesel. He said it does not turn over and so he thought he'd try a new battery first. Will have more info by day's end.

    The metal is in good shape. The paint is in good shape/no rust. Would you be interested in seeing it ? He is looking for a buyer.

    If it turns over, I'd take a look at it. My wife would probably kill me, but Willis is just up the road

    Oh yes, my family has lived on the same land for over 200 yrs. We know Belleville well....I'll see what a new battery costs and hope that is it.
