Great looking Ford!   These are great tractors. We have a 861 Powermaster. Bought it from the neighbor, who bought it new in 1958. We use this tractor for mowing.

Travis, that was great!!  Thanks so much for posting that.  I put my daughter on my lap and let her watch it with me while I explained that this was the first tractor I was introduced to at my Grandmother's farm.  I explained that when I was only a few years older than her my Daddy let me drive that tractor, and that my Grandmother let me "buy" it for a penny-everything I had on me at the time.  I told her how even the fellow operating it looked like Dad, with the overalls and the hat.  What a wonderful video, seems like even today it would be hard to truly improve on those basics.

Glad you liked it!  I shared it with my dad who remembers the Jubilee that his grandfather purchased new.  Good stuff!

That is a cool video! My Dad grew up in an area where the Fords were heavily sold. But He always said their 3 point hitch was what sold them . And that They were over rated and used Massey Harris and Case Tractors when I was growing up.

I took him with me when I went to look at my 1500, and he aproved, he likes my little Ford.
