  • Ford 2000 industrial
  • Don't know much about the thousand series Ford tractors but the museum I volunteer at ( East Contra County Historical Museum, Brentwood, CA) is considering buying a 2000 Industrial with front end loader for help moving stuff around and working in the orchard we have. Haven't seen it yet but in the photos it appears to have a three point hitch, power steering, and rear wheel weights.
    We would be interested in anything special to this model to look out for, years made, or anything else you want to mention!
    Thank you, Loren

  • I assume you are talking about a 4 cylinder model.
    They are basically a 601 with a heavy non adjustable front axle.
    I can't remember for sure now but think they had the heavier rear axle housing like the 801s.
    Maybe I should say they were like an 801 but with the smaller 134 ci engune.
    Don't quote me on that though.
    Good, tough, long lived tractors. Generally had power steering to go along with the heavy front axle for loader work. My pal Kenny had one that he switched over from a gasser to diesel. It was a honey of a tractor with Sherman combo.
    I posted a photo of it in the thread below where they were talking about the correct Buff color. The very early ones might have come from the factory Red and Buff. Most were Blue/Buff.

  • Yes, the 4 cylinder model. I remember the post about the colors, this one is all "buff", it must have been repainted but still has the red panel on the hood with " Ford 2000 Industrial" on it.
    Thank you.

  • Loren, if you go to a site called "tractordata" you can search there for the model and see all the specifications. Dave
