D1424C is the model number. It is a 4000 series with a gas engine, independent PTO and 8 speed transmission. Models that start with D10 are the general purpose Ag chassis, and D11 is the Low Center of Gravity (LCG) chassis (4110 model), and D20 is the row crop chassis (4200 model). I'm not sure exactly what chassis variant D14 is, as I don't have anything that documents that one, but it might be the 4000SU (Special Utility model), which is basically the general purpose ag chassis with the lighter duty front axle from the 3000 series. post some pictures and we should be able to tell more.
C262042 is the serial number, and that's a 1970 serial number. 0b12b from the engine is the production code for the engine, which means that the engine was assembled on February 12, 1970 by the day shift. The tractor itself was probably assembled 1 to 3 months later. There should be a similar number on the sticker under the hood for the tractor production code. If not, look on the flat spot on the transmission bell housing that faces up. It is above the 2 large bolt holes just toward the rear of the tractor from the starter. The model number and serial number should be stamped into that flat spot, along with the tractor production code. If you can get that we can tell you exactly when your tractor came off the assembly line.

Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked
