I have some questions:
If a guy dropped the 5 speed from a x51 or x61 in place of an x71 or x81 how would even a purist know it was done? Casting codes?
A guy might even get close on those too if he was lucky.
How about dropping the tin from a Jube onto an X00?
Is the tractor no longer original?
If a guy added PS to his 641 could anyone tell it wasn't put there at the factory?
Is the tractor still 'original'?
Would that change be indicative of poor maintenance?
I say that generally people buy Fords for their utility. Not for originality. And not their collectability.
And aside from a few purists here who Really know these tractors and would love to find a very nice 'original' unit, most people would actually pay more for a clean nice running unit no matter what the tin or tranny or casting codes said to the purists.

Hello Jerry , I was not trying to make a big deal here BUT the question was of VALUE between original and non-original tractors . As for your questions 1)yes casting numbers and dates & if it was not painted does the original paint match ? AND why was it done ? Abuse or Neglect? 2)NAA sheet metal with no change will only fit a 600 don't forget 800 dash is different, yes it can still be original just not to the original tractor, AND why was it changed ?Abuse or Neglect?3)power strg would be an upgrade & yes if the dowels were not installed in the trans. case, and by serial number if the tractor is an early one .4) no not poor maintenance. As I said Jerry the question was VALUE not why guys buy tractors, most of my tractors are Industrials(no collector value) BUT I still look for a correct tractor because more than likely it is a better tractor and from all the years of doing Equipment Maintenance for my customers the better they are taken care of the more ORIGINAL they stay plain and simple . Thanks Tony
