Model year 1929 made in 1928. If yours is a 1928 what is my SN 300298? Mine would be the 48th one made as they started at 50. The first and fourth minus 3 makes them both 29's. Will you argue that yours is older than mine?

Maybe the two numbers after the first number don't mean a thing . You said they started at 50 , you must mean 250. If that is right mine would be newer as mine is 252 the second one made. Are we wild guessing? If the second two number were in order of made mine would be number 18.

You need to get your Full Steam Ahead book out. Read pages 149 to 159. It tells the entire story of the development of the L. The back of the book shows all the production numbers by years. For your information the first and fourth digits minus 3 is the production year, and the balance of the number is the tractor production number. Yours is tractor #1852. Mine is #298. FYI mine is a C, and I read somewhere that the first 250 were L's and C production started at #250. It is very possible that 1929 model tractors were made in 1928. Much like Ford Mo CO used to start making the new year cars on Sept first of the previous year. My guess is that it is much earlier than that now to try to get the new models out before the other guys.

They sure made a lots of L and C cases in 1928 and called them 1929. I know for sure my Grandpa bought my L in the fall of 1928.

Not at all. I was also told they put the ser.#"s on after the run. Maybe they made 50 or more in the first run in 1928. . I don"t know that. I do know mine was one of the first two sold in our county in Aug. or Sept. of 1928. For the guy who wanted to know about running in a circle . Just throw a chain over the steering wheel and jump off.. The cab my dad made out of a old car , run it that way for about 6 years.
