Very rare original gold demonstrator. Most were 871,881,971,or 981. But they could be ordered anyway the dealer wanted, so very few were 601 series or 701. I bought it with the full (although unreasonable ) intentions of restoring back to original. I acquired the tractor from the gentleman that used it when he was a kid and later bought the estate were the tractor had lived its whole life. This tractor was originally purchased from Auburn tractor which was on center street in Auburn Maine. The sheet metal is in great shape (although painted the wrong gold color) and tractor runs and drives. As you can see in the photo it still has much of the original gold on the chassis. The transmission was warranted by ford and sent back for the overhaul in 1960 and has been stamped with those numbers on the side of the housing. Make a reasonable offer, I would love to see someone restore it.
