That looks like an interesting project. I kind of like the looks of open hood model Fords better than the ones with full side panels.

Welcome. It looks like a 1973 Ford LGT165. Thats a really good score. Check out some restored ones at http://groups.yahoo....arden_Tractors/

I agree on the looks. I have a 73 Ford 2000 farm tractor that is the same style as my 72 LGT125. When I get to paint them next year I'll post a photo of them.

Nice, 3 point, weights, ag's and loader! :dancingbanana: Is that a PTO lurking under there to? Looks to be a very worthwhile project. Keep us up to date. :thumbs:

the old girl needs a lot of tlc. it has been sitting for a long time but it runs very good no smoke or strange knocks .
lots of leaks though but a good thing it has o-rings instead of machined valves on the loader

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE INFO yep i meant to yell that lol

That looks like a nice project tractor you have there. Glad it runs good. I love that loader & 3-point. Lucky dog!
