First of all its 67 yrs old it will have issues but yours sound normal and fixable. That said fixing and bringing the back is very fulfilling, cheaper then a head DR but like doctor it will take your money but you will get it all back when you get some seat time. I would fix rear grinding noise now. Buy a repair manual first. Sounds as if you have chloride in tires? They can be drained or moved filled,If you don't drain it. I get a good strong helper to roll it off don't do it yourself you can get hurt. Roll it to a safe place where kids wont be temped to roll it, treat it like a loaded gun.get it well supported. 2 things on the smoke it is blow by and all engines have it.It may be the cap fit or cap is saturated and needs cleaned.Clean it. Start it if it smokes you rings may be stuck. Go to Archives on this site type stuck rings. a member named "old" gives the best post, do what he says.Get a new oil gauge I like " Stewart Warner", dont trust old gauge. It sounds like it all can be fixed. Tractor price vary from area to area. I would offer $1200 He will say 14 or 15 as per your feeling he will take less,you are on your own after that on the price. LOL. The tin looks good, beat up tin mean abuse 95% of the time. It looks ok from here. Serial #s are tricky. Remove all dirt and grease with hand held brush, a lot of stampers at the Ford factory were board with their job I guess and a lot of the numbers are hard too read. Start of seial # is 9N. You may read it once its clean, if not able to read I can tell you how to get it,just post back.If It sounds and runs good and has good tin go for it. POST BACK PLEASE, Master Of the Obvious L.B,

Thanks for the input. Don't know if I'm going to go for this tractor or not yet. I've found the work I've done my 640 to be as rewarding as you refer to - especially when out using it!
As for the serial number - there isn't one to uncover. The metal has been chipped away/corroded/removed in some way. Whether or not it was intentional is unknown but one or two of the suspect edges are ridiculously straight.
