    Rick,

    My apologies for thread drift, but you are the Ford guru. I was watching a show from the UK on the RFD channel. It featured 30 minutes+ of Fords/Fordsons plowing a field. (I couldn't help myself, I watched the whole show).

    One of the featured tractors was called the "County" model, a 4WD model with the same-sized front and rear tires with I'm guessing 100 HP+.

    Was there an equivalent model in the US?

    Several models of Ford-based County conversions are found peppered around North America. My boss owns an 1164.

    I saw a County tractor while on vacation in Cooperstown, NY a couple of weeks ago.

    Hello Rick,

    So should i stay away from the England tractors? Are they less valuable or more problematic. I want a 4610 SU II but trying to figure out which ones to look for. Also, is there more emission equipment on the England tractors or 90 models and up? Can't remember when some of the laws changed.

    Thanks,

    Re-read this part of my previous post:

    "There's nothing special or particularly noteworthy about having a post 1964-British built Ford. If you have a post-1988 3 or 4 cylinder Ford utility tractor with blue paint, it is most likely a British built tractor."

    Federal emissions requirements for 3 cylinder Ford sized tractors kicked in on Jan 1, 1998, long after 4610 production ceased. If you want a 4610 SU, you should be more concerned with price and condition than country of origin.
