Your D17 would be a 1957 model, its first year for production. As Unimog states serial #'s for the D17 start at 1001.

I checked 3 books and the serial number starts
in 1957 at 1001. They were tested in Nebraska
and used serial numbers 1093 and 1128. The 1958
model year starts at #4300.

Hey Unimog-- I know that this is off the subject, but I'm interested in the unimog vehicle, and I am considering going out and buying one. Do you have any info about them? I have a hundred different questions! Thanks, Bryan

Well, my book agrees with your comments - 4300 is the first production tractor. I expect there were a number of pre-production D17 tractors before introduction and maybe that is what you have. I have a Moline with a number higher than the model numbers were supposed to go and it is a model that isn't in any books (ZTE). Others have explained that it is an experimental. I think the first D-14 was built in the 40's (though the books say 1957) - it would be something to find one of those! You may have a 1957 D-17!

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
