Did the Ford 120 only have round headlights in the first year? Most of them I see have square headlights, According to the model and serial number it was built in 1966.

Thanks for the welcome and thanks for serving!!! I was a Cannon Cocker in the Army. I am in the middle of restoring the 120, It also has a loader on it. Well at the moment its off so I can paint everything. Just wanted to make sure It wasnt some other model with a 120 hood on it! is there any other differences in the 66 as far as paint colors or schemes.

:welcometogttalk: & :wewantpics: Please.  I haven't seen a loader on that style before !  Is it a factory one or was it just modified to fit at a later date?

I've never seen the loader on this model either. I was under the impression that they didn't have one until the later model fords came out. With that being said I don't think it is factory, It could be homemade I havent seen an id tag anywhere yet, but I haven't looked it over too close yet. It came from an old ford dealership, that closed in the 70s,  they had an auction maybe 5-6 years ago. Pretty neat, had model T tire imprints in the concrete of the shop floor. Now its gone and something new in its spot. Anyway Its kinda rough but It definatly belongs in my collection of tractors. The loader really makes it cooler. I didn't get pictures before I took it all apart, Ill take some and then Ill take some as I paint and go back together. The loader is red and trip bucket which is neat. The welds look really good but have flaws here and there which makes me think its homemade whoever built it did an excelent job though. Thanks for the info guys.

Yes. Round headlights. I have an early 66 120 with round headlights. The other thing different is the big starter button in stead of a start position on the key. I'll try to post picture of mine. Because of the starter button the wiring diagram is somewhat different also. I think the color scheme is correct on mine. 20150720_202738.jpg 20150509_144950.jpg

No not original paint. I bought it this way except I've repainted the wheels and otherwise touched up the paint here and there.
