I've got to agree with Fordfarmer... if it's a 67 it is most certainly a Commander. The Commander was the polished turd version of the 6000 that fixed some of it's problems. I think by 68 or so they'd abandoned it anyway.
To be chairitable... the 6000 is probably the worst mess of a tractor that Ford ever afixed their name to.
If you're taking it on trade you're really dealing in pretty small dollars. I bought a 66 5000 last spring for 2K and it's a hell of a lot better tractor than the 6000 ever dreamed of being... and that's getting to be more or less typical pricing on models of that vintage around here that need some love.

RodInNS, I agree with the 6000 being a mess. Dad had an early 60's red 6000. Because of the SOS, in the shop all the time, Ford gave us a newer blue 6000. We had to use are old tires.

For that reason, I'm afraid to buy one. The mechanics had a hard time with them back in the day. What about today, how many people are left to fix them?

That's right... '67 was the last year of production. I -think- the 6000 was '61 to '64 and the Commander was '65 through '67.
