There is a ton of differences between the Ts and that one. The battery is not located between the legs, the running boards vs rests, the transmission is different -Jacobson vs peerless. There are more, the 100 is still a nice tractor and it's easier to get parts.

Thanks to you all!! Until this month all I ever knew was it is a Ford not a Jacobsen. an agricultural tractor restorer in Wales said he thought it was a T1000 so I took it on from there,searched Ford Jacobsen and found you good people.
Would still like to know where to find the serial number, in case I get enthusiastic and drag it out for a look.

An update for those interested. Yesterday I met up with Tony in Chard, Somerset, England to view the Ford 100. It fired up very nicely and despite the surface rust it was solid and straight and virtually all complete. It come with a mowing deck, rotovator, front plough and a plough. We spent some time talking about its history and what's what with the attachments. A deal was struck and I will be collecting the GT in a few weeks time.

Here are some up to date photos of the Ford Jacobsen built 100. It was hard to take some decent shots due to lack of space and clutter. I will take some better photos when I collect it.

Looks like it has wheel weights or hub caps on the rear wheels. I edited the post so the pics would open. Nice score!

Sounds like its going to a good home.
Does it have a slot hitch or a sleeve hitch?

It got a sleeve hitch. I wonder how many of these were imported over to the UK as Fords? I will try and get the numbers once it's in my hands.

Cheers

The Jacobson tractors had a slot hitch available. I was wondering mainly because of the slot hitch plow in the one pic.
It may have been slot at one time and the plow has just managed to stay with it.

To be honest I am only going on what Josh Deaven mentioned in his observations with regards to the sleeve hitch. I will find out more on collection. Cheers.

This afternoon I picked up the Ford 100 and drove it onto the back of the Pickup for the first time in 7 years. It will need a new battery as the current one is knackered. Tomorrow I want to unload it and give it a damn good wash and if I have time to drain/ flush the old oil and refil with fresh oil. Ideally I need to service it with air filter, plug, new fuel line, petrol additive to clean the fuel system and a good grease up. Here are some photos of it on collection. I will be collecting the tiller and front bulldozer plow in a couple of weekends time.
