If you go a bit newer you can still find complete NOS tractors.
From the late 60s till the mid 70s Ford donated a bunch of tractors to VoTechs, high schools and community colleges.
"For the advancement of thechnical education".
I've owned about 8 of these - either complete or major components.
Some have been ruined by many untrained hands.
Others I've owned had never been touched.
I have an nos 4000 that was a "school tractor".
And my 3000 is one - except it's actually a stealth 3600.
Here is a 3000 I owned. Typical of how they were donated.
I completed this one and sold it.
