My first Ford. My goal is to acquire one tractor of each of the farm equipment brands. Its been several years since I started this hobby and this is the first Ford I've seen for sale locally. That its an early 1966 120 is a bonus.I may have paid a bit much but finding this, I thought was opportunity. Gonna try to load a few pics. Attachments included are mower deck(magnesium?), snowthrower, and dozer blade. So far I've got Massey,Case, Cub Cadet, John Deere and now Ford covered.20150509_074540.jpg 20150509_074432.jpg 20150509_081634.jpg

Very nice specimen. If I am reading that serial right, that would have been the 30th one built with that model # (53091   1631?).

 

Checked the list I have been building here, and that shows as correct.

I put the mower deck on it, mowed some lawn today. Had to adjust the carb to get it to run without choke and the deck bearings are noisy. Other than that the tractor seems to run quite nice. All kinds of small misc items need some TLC but tractor seems solid and runs well.

Now when you say every brand that had a ag tractor, are you going after the Oliver/MM/Cockshutt clones also?

Well I won't hold my breath for those. If I found one locally here I'd sure love to buy it.I'm not sure if many of those even made up here to Canada. I figure I have most the common ones covered already except for Allis Chalmers. Some of the brands were all made by same company anyway but I would still love the different colors. Anyway we'll see how far I get.

I am trying for a full rainbow of colors, but the pickings are a little slim around here for Red ones.
