I have some questions: If a guy dropped the 5 speed from a x51 or x61 in place of an x71 or x81 how would even a purist know it was done? Casting codes? A guy might even get close on those too if he was lucky. How about dropping the tin from a Jube onto an X00? Is the tractor no longer original? If a guy added PS to his 641 could anyone tell it wasn't put there at the factory? Is the tractor still 'original'? Would that change be indicative of poor maintenance? I say that generally people buy Fords for their utility. Not for originality. And not their collectability. And aside from a few purists here who Really know these tractors and would love to find a very nice 'original' unit, most people would actually pay more for a clean nice running unit no matter what the tin or tranny or casting codes said to the purists.
