Mark, I'm sure you know, regardless of color, tires are expensive.

Are we talking about a 4 cylinder 4000 or a 3 cylinder?

From what you said, I'm assuming we are talking about a 4 cylinder.

Are the rims power adjust, or just the bolt on type? The power

adjust rims are pretty much rare as hen's teeth to find a replacement.

If that tractor is truly a 4000, it should not have a round nose badge.

The 4000 just had a "scoop" up front.

That tranny casting number, 312259, would make it an early SOS
tranny which would again lead me to believe it may be an x01 series.

Can you double check those numbers? Should be two or three rows.

They should be on the flat just aft of the starter.
Battery acid may have worn them all off, or they may be full of paint.

They would be stamped in, not raised letters/numbers.

Also, is it a utility version or the row-crop version? That affects pricing.

I bought a 4000 RC SOS last year. Works great, new rear tires,
good PA rims, dual remote hydraulics and the long drop drawbar.
I paid $1500. Picture below. I'm in Ionia County Michigan.

There is a utility version for sale about 15 miles from me.

It is "restored". New paint, new tires, etc.

They are asking $4500. It's still there.

Hi, Royse, and thanks for your response. I drove through Ionia County two days ago en route to/from a get-together at my sister's in Laingsburg.

The very first thing I checked when I looked at the tractor was the number of cylinders (there are four). Then I forgot to include it in my description. Duh! :-)

This one is a wide front.

The top of the grille does look different than the one in your photo, so maybe it isn't a 4000 after all. The hood has Ford 4000 decals on it, but a closer look revealed painted-over select-o-speed decals. Maybe whoever painted the hood slapped on the 4000 decals just for fun.

I did find two rows of numbers stamped into the flat behind the starter. My neighbor and I went to work with paint remover, sandpaper, and (of course) spit. We think these are the numbers:


They were very hard to read, so any of the eights could be a six or a three. And the nine could be a zero. But anyway, that's our best guess.

The rear rims are not adjustable.

Any ideas?

Thanks again --

Mark W. in MI
