Hi. Just got a Ford T1000. Looking to confirm some info on these. From what I can find these were Fords first garden tractors. Mine is serial number 53056-1608, which I think would make it the 8th one built. Engine # k241s 21251 which I think is the original engine. What Jacobson model would this be the same as? I also came with tbe mower deck ford plow and some kind of cultivator. I did have it running last night for a short time What roughly may it be worth. Thanks for any info you can give me. The last picture is my daughter on my main mower a LGT 16D diesel.
