  • Serial number information.

  • I just purchased a Ford tractor and I need help in determining what the serial number means. There are the numbers 631 and below that there is a diamond and the numbers 42480 followed by another diamond. It is evidently a 600 series but that is all I can figure out.
    Any information you can provide will be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Walden Powell

  • Re: Serial number information.
  • As stated your tractor is a 601 series not a 600 series. It is a 1958. built in the 3rd week of Aug 1958.
    Your tractor did not come with a pto which could have been added at the dealer or later as mine was on my 631. Larger tires/rims and tool box were also add but never put a proofmeter on.
    I would suggest you get a full set of manuals for your tractor. It will help you understand the operation and capabilities of your tractor. Good luck with your new tractor.
