I think i may have to return to the drawing board, after looking at the 61 manual, i think it must be a bit earlier, its got rear mud guards but no shift lever as from the 61 model, it looks more like the 60 model with mud guards and foot operated drive but no shift change.

Any comments gratefully received!

Looks like it has the shift lever judging by the photo, it is on the left side up to the left of the steering wheel if you are sitting on the tractor.

Just to answer previous question, flap on hood has been added as an extra.

No shift change under seat, just a cam type arrangement on rear sprocket, reading through manuals and looking at pictures, shift lever was introduced in61, by my deductions now it must be a late 60 model, battery box under steering wheel, but was fitted with mud guard and battery box arrangement either from factory or someone fitted them later.

What a pain the data plate is missing!
