Yes, 961 would be the model number. From what you have described, it sounds like the tranny in your tractor may have been swapped in from an earlier one. Or, maybe it was a 961 that was one of the last ones built before they changed over to making blue (4000) ones.
Is there any red paint showing? Is the tractor a row crop type? What does the grille look like? is there any -1 or -2 etc after the 961? -Will

The tractor was bought new by my friend's father-in-law who now has dementia but it doesn't appear it's ever been disassembled. There is nothing after the 961. I did notice red paint under the blue paint so it's possible it was a 01 series transition tractor. The hood has "4000" decal on the side and the front has the round emblem recess in the center although the emblem itself is gone. I thought the only thing that changed with the 1000 series was the hood didn't have the round recess. It's a wide front row-crop tractor with 5 speed manual tranny, hydraulics, three-point, and live PTO. With a serial number of 2461 could this be a 1957 '01 series painted blue with a 4000 decal?

Would you believe that Ford Tractor actually encouraged owners of older Red & Gray tractors to have them repainted Blue & Grey!

Ha, that's a real interesting ad, I didn't know Ford had a "special" on that! -Will
