All 700's and all 900's were built with power steering regardless of narrow, wide, or single front end. 600's and 800's were power steering optional. A fully restored 700 just sold on Ebay I don't remember for sure but I think they got around $3800- maybe some else knows. The tractor is probably less valuable/popular than a 600 or 800 so it could be anywhere from 1500 to 3500 or so depending on condition and options. A 761 (5- speed with live PTO)would be a better tractor than a 740 (4 speed non live PTO) Diesels are worth more if running good and Selectospeeds are worth a little less and you need to be careful in buying one. They are great but can be very expensive to fix unless you are into them (I have 2 of them)

you say select-o-speeds are worth less.If you are planning on using it every day maybe so but to a collector they are worth more than a 4 or 5 speed.

I have a 740 and a 960, the 960 does not have power steering, it is an orig. tractor. I have a orig. brochure that shows power steering standard on 900 and optional on 700. Both tractors are orig. BURT.

Hmmm! maybe my memory isn't that perfect. Anyway the brochere that I have does show std powersteering on the 741,771,941,951,961. I also have an ad in the Summer 1956 Ford Farming Magazine that states Power Steering at no extra cost on Tricycle Tractors. I don't remember if you could delete the power steering on the 960. What year is yours? We bought a new 1957 960 and it had power steering , I do remember some owners having trouble keeping the seals from blowing on the cylinder and not liking power steering.

The brochure "Ford tractor accessories" is dated 1957 "Power steering is standard equipment on all new Row crop Ford 700 and 900 Series trctors, as an accessory for early model 700 and 900 series trctors not so equipped at time of purchase." Hope this helps. BURT.

Thanks for your help. I assume there were still less 700 built than the others though yes no. Foud a gasser with three pieces of equipment wide front 4 speed for 2500, but can probably get for 2000.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
