I think Cat just got a special delivery from his cousin in Colorado.  :poke:

 

All I know is what I read on the Gravely serial # chart.   I assume that covers all sizes of tractors in the 400 series.  Only difference is what size engine was installed at the factory.  Rest of the tractors were all the same.  There was no hydrostat option back then - at least on Gravelys.

The chart says # 3849 was first one built in '70 and 7522 was the last one built in '70.  The 432 was built from '68 through '73. [roughly]

That would make yours right in the middle of production, but an early '70 model.
