Pretty good point, we sold ford in the late 60's to mid 70's and as much as the thousand series was mostly well built, JD was prevalent on dairy farms here, so was IH for the reasons you mentioned, though again the thousand series was well respected, and some farms did have them, so did many smaller operations or landowners, I just saw a 2000 that came out of the woodwork, for sale, with our sticker on it, friend of mine bought a 1 owner we sold with our sticker on it, came from a similar small property owner.

The other side of it for Ford was industrial, we sold backhoes, 27 in one year to the local utility company, plus the LCG's for mowing, townships seemed to like those, I remember the town we live in bought, ( we were low bidder is more like it) a pair of backhoes, we painted them the towns orange color, and they had them for quite some time, well into the 90's. I know others had industrials and so on, but who else had the LCG models like Ford, and on the hills around here, they are or seem to be the safest tractor you could have. Ag did not sell all that well, though we did well on hay equipment, it too was not new holland, industrials were the breadwinner, and that started a lot of trouble with mother Ford because they wanted the sister dealer to sell those and us to starve, 27 + backhoes sold and they give you a hard time about it.
