Serial numbers of all 2000/3000/4000 Ford tractors made from 1965-1975 could start with an "A", a "B" or a "C", depending on which factory it was assembled at. A serial number that starts with an "A" means that it was assembled at the plant in Antwerp, Belgium. A serial number that starts with a "B" means that it was assembled at the plant in Basildon England (UK). A serial number that starts with a "C" means that it was assembled at the plant in Michigan in the USA.

The Europeans had the flat top fenders.

5C09E doesn't look like a valid model number or a valid production code.
B803440 does look to be a valid format for a Basildon England serial number, but it's a pretty high number, probably not a 1965-1975 5000 serial number.

C235 looks ot be a European date code, as they used a different order than here in the US. It looks liek March 23rd of some year that ends in a 5,but since we don't have a valid model number and that serial numebr looks so high, I wouldn't even want to venture a decade.

The guys in England must have thought Michigan was in Canada, thus the "C".

That's funny, but doesn't make sense when you think about it. It was the guys in Michigan that put the "C" stamps on the serial number, not the guys in England.
