After my dad passed away this year, I am deciding what to do with a few items left from his nearly 50 years of farming. I would like to restore & keep his Ford tractor. Before putting money in to it, I want to know how much to pay my siblings, what it might cost to restore, parts availability & for my wife's or kids' sake in the future, what it might be worth.
First & foremost, I want to determine the model & year:
The serial number on the left side of the transmission is NDA 4024 B (or 8) 1. It has a unique shifter with 5 forward speeds & one reverse, 4-cyl. gas, with grey hood, grill & fenders & red belly & axle. The cyclopes ornament is missing & no visible model number.
