The standard tractors were the stripped down models of the Power King and Jim Dandy. For thos who didn't feel they needed all the frills, they would buy the standard model which had hand brakes, rope start and no lights or sheet metal over the drive train. Standard models did come with hoods, at least in the sixties.
The deluxe model offered foot brakes, electric start, lights, sheet metal over the drive train and a padded seat.
From what I understand, there were other options like hydraulics that you could get on either version but were not part of any "package".
These packages were no longer offered when the long hoods came out. Options yes, option packages no.
Here is a catalog cut showing the difference in the standard and deluxe models.
