The brakes on all of the smaller Fords were adequate. But not great by any means. If you want better brakes you will need to go to a bigger or newer tractor with the double reduction rear end and wet disc type brakes.
The tractor could have leaking axle seals which would allow oil to saturate the shoes and make them nearly useless.
If I remember correctly the 3600s had an improved outer bearing retainer so a guy can replace those seals at home without having to manufacture special tools to remove the bearings.
I looked at a 3600 with cab once that was for sale locally. Cab seemed like an awfully big saddle on a small horse but would have kept a guy cool, warm or dry as the weather dictated.
Don't know what to tell you about the AC. Never worked on one.
I can tell you that a 3600 is a Very good tractor and the gassers aren't so foul smelling and noisy as a diesel is.
New tires will cost you $1200 by the time you get them mounted and fluid pumped back in so consider that in your equation.
How many hours is on it and what is the asking price of the tractor?
Tell us that and we'll help you not make a bad deal if we can.

Don't know where you are, but that would be cheap here in WI. Condition of the tires may partially account for the lower price. It would be hard to go wrong at that price.

A 3600, unless it's really rough and been abused is worth that much easily. That's without the cab and any attachments.
