Can anyone tell me what I have here. I have done some research and know a little about the ford tractors. But can't figure out what model this is.I have found some models that look like this one, but  It has a Kohler k341 16hp engine, And the models I thought it was don't come with anything bigger than a 14hp engine.I have been a ford man all my life and have been wanting a ford tractor. My grandfather offered me an 8n but that is a little too large to use on my 2 acre lot. I purchased this from a farmer that used it to move equipment around. It has has several repairs with what looks like what ever was laying in the barn at the time it needed the repair.The tractor does run and seems to be restorable. What is the restored value of something like this. I am just curious if I am better off restoring this one, or selling it and buying one already restored. Thanks for any advise.

Do you have any of the engine #'s handy? Model, spec, serial? That can tell us if the engine has been changed into the tractor!

Might be 1 that no one has ever heard of or it could be an older Repowered 100,120 or 140.

 

It is Hydro or gear drive? looks like a hydro but I cant really tell by looking at the belt cover that far away.

Welcome!  You generally can buy a restored GT for less than the cost of doing it yourself. But restoring one yourself can be a lot of fun. My thought is, I will put more money than its worth so I can have it the way I want. Still way cheaper than new and may last longer. I find enjoyment in driving a 43 year old JD.

The serial number is a 71127 the engine is a k341t.

Hmmmmmm? Serial is very short, doesn't show in the Kohler Manual. The K341t says it should be retractable start.

 

I found the serial number on the tractor. It is a 53083  160

Check this out. The tractor serial should be 4 digits. That is a very early 1967 as the serial for the 53083 Hydro's started with 1601. But, it should be a 10 HP.

Can anyone tell me what I have here.

I have been a ford man all my life and have been wanting a ford tractor. My grandfather offered me an 8n but that is a little too large to use on my 2 acre lot. 

It has has several repairs with what looks like what ever was laying in the barn at the time it needed the repair. The tractor does run and seems to be restorable. What is the restored value of something like this. I am just curious if I am better off restoring this one, or selling it and buying one already restored.

What you have there is a platform for a good working tractor.  The 1960s Fords were made by Jacobsen and referred to by horsepower.  If yours was originally a 10hp it would be called a Ford 100, 12hp a Ford 120, etc.

 

Looks like you are missing the usual small parts, pto handle, deck cover, grill, engine screen from what is shown.  Other small parts can be hard to find, battery cover, starter belt cover, hub caps, etc.

 

I would ask the farmer if he has any of the missing pieces including the plow, you have a plow guide bolted to the axle hanger. 

 

The implements were nice and easy to change, looks like you have the aluminum deck and the dozer blade has adjustable angle from the seat.  Also had a sleeve hitch, tiller, and 1 and 2 stage blower but bearings may be hard to find.  Some have mounted loaders.

 

As for restored value it would not be worth it imo.  With the engine change, missing pieces and maybe holes drilled it has more value as a working tractor imo.  With your 16hp motor would be good for spinning things like mower, tiller, blower

 

Normally these tractors go in the 200-400 range running original.  Sometimes on ebay as high as 800 but those are show quality restored with most of the original small parts.  One went for 1200 with a sickle bar all restored but mostly these old Fords just get run into the ground and repowered like yours or parted out.  good simple work tractors cheap to run easy to fix

Thanks for all the info.I was afraid it would cost more to restore it that it would be worth.  I guessed restoration cost would be $1500-$2000. I own a mustang shop, so we could do most of the work, but I charge myself like I was a regular customer.
