It's interesting that the Navy labels it as an "Industrial". That's a standard general purpose ag chassis and front axle in the pictures, and it's got the exact same model number as my '73 general purpose chassis 4000 with a gas engine and SOS transmission, , D4024E, which definitely says that it's not an industrial, at least according to Ford. I wonder how the Navy came to classify it as an industrial? It doesn't even have a loader on it.
It looks like it's a 1970 model, made May 2, 1970, during the day shift.

The tires are worth around $800.00 to $1000.00 by themselves.


It's missing the cap for the air filter canister, but I can't tell from
the picture whether the air filter is actually in there and intact, so I hope that it hasn't been run without a good seal on the air filter, otherwise it has most likely sucked some dust in over the years and scored the cylinders. If it comes back with good numbers from a compression test then it should be ok.

As it sits, I would say that it would probably bring between $3500.00 and $5000.00 around here (southeast PA).

There is a black folgers coffee lid covering the hole for the air cleaner.i did not get to start it. When I was there the battery was weak and I did not have cables with me but I will check it out.

Take a closer look at the front axle and bolster... That's a straight, non-adjustable axle, under a 5000-style bolster. (like a 4400 or 4500, can't remember which offhand, but thinking 4500)

Definitely not a 4500 front axle. The 4500 front axle was a cast piece that angles back on each side as it goes out from the center. I thought that I had seen the adjusting bolts when I looked at it earlier, but looking at it closer, it does look like a 4400 front axle though. They were shaped similar to the the adjustable front axle on the general purpose 4000 (upside down U), and that one has the triangular shaped support hanging down below the bolster like the 4400 as well. Oh well, the model number says it's a general purpose, but the front axle's off of a 4400. The front end could have been changed at some point. Who can tell for sure what might have been changed from the original on a 40 + year old tractor.
