Neighbor gave me a pile of tractor/implement brochures he found in his uncle"s house, including a set of the new 1000 series Ford brochures from 1965. Inside the 3000 brochure was a handwritten quote from the local dealer:

4000 diesel - $4733
4000 gas - $4185
3000 gas - $3524

Each tractor had a $55 and $151 option (not sure what option) plus $250 freight included in the price.

He didn"t end up buying a Ford back then but later traded in his MF"s for a new Ford 6600 and years later a new 3910-II.

I thought we had paid $3500 for our 3000 gas SOS in 1967 with a 2-bottom 101 plow, but that might have included a Super C as a trade-in.

In decent shape, they sell now for what (or more than) they did when new back then.

About 3 years ago, I found a nice 961 with all new tires and rims, new two stage clutch and everything working pretty good. It has what may be what is left of the original paint, which isn't too bad, and it still looks pretty good.

I paid $3500 for it and hauled it home. I think considering the condition that the price was OK. Don't know what it sold for new, but it was probably about the same, or maybe even less.

Those prices would be right in the ball park. The general rule at the time was a list of roughly $100/hp. Times sure have changed !!!

I ran those numbers through an inflation calculator, and they range from $26k to $35k today. A new 2wd Workmaster lists in the $17k to $24k range. Granted, no way near the tractor as the old Fords but I guess the price reflects that.
