I hadn't thought about that, maybe it is an earlier tractor with the plain grille like the NAA and the ones you mentioned. I guess that would make it a 900, maybe. The '63 grille has no round emblem and the '62 has both the round emblem and the eggcrate grille, so I guess those are out. Seeing a photo or 2 would really help. The dash panels are essentially the same, the 901 series having a fuel, temp, and oil gauge and the 900 has an ammeter in place of one of those, I think. Even then it could be a tractor made up of parts of others. -Will
Edit: Another thing you could look for are number/letter combinations cast into certain parts as date codes. They will be something like "9A2" and in this example the 9 would be for 1959. You will find these on the lift arms and on the rear axle housing and other places if the tractor isn't too dirty.
Also, the engine has a number cast into it on the lower right side which could start with 310, B9NN, or C0NN - this can help determine engine mfg date.
