I don’t know about Witherspoon. Chances are you’re looking for power steering, wide front axle, and live pto. MF 240 - 250 come to mind, along with JD 1050 or 1070. I don’t think 8N Ford would be what you’re looking for.

A Ford 2000 or similar model is pretty common and easy to find. It's a good reliable unit and comes in both a gas and diesel version.

I've been looking for something like that for years. About the only thing from Ford that I wouldn't mind having
