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 - The Fordson F Ignition System - by Anthony West. A fellow restorer contacted me earlier this year asking for some help and advice on a model F that he was restoring. He had over a period of months spent a fair amount of his hard earned cash on replacement parts for the old "trembler" ignition. Sadly though all his efforts seemed to be a waste of time and money as he still couldn''t get the temperamental old thing to run correctly!! If i said that this was a little frustrating for him that would be "conservative" in fact the problem had reduce ... [Read Article]
