New Ford Tractor - Need Help with Model

1844 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Nouveau Redneck
I just purchased a Ford tractor from a friend. I need help identifying what model this thing is. He told me it was originally yellow and he painted it blue. The numbers I found on it don't all jive. the firs number must be the model (440226) The second number I assume is serial (C138327) The third number I don't know (7007) This thing also has a different transmission that I have never came across before. It has two shift levers. You can shift one from HIgh to Low and the other has 1st gear forward, 2nd gear forward, 1st gear reverse and 2nd gear reverse. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I attached a pic.

440226 looks like the model number. The model number starting with 440 means that it is a 1965 to 1968 4400, which is the utility chassis variant of the 3 cylinder 4000 series, which was made from 1965 to 1975, but they switched from using the number 4 to the letter D part way through 1968, so it can't be any later than that. That is the heavier fixed width front axle of the 4400 in your first picture. The first 2 means that it has a gas engine, and the second 2 means that it has transmission driven PTO (on-live PTO). The 6 at the end is incorrect, as the last character should be a letter which would designate which transmission it has, and your description sounds like a power reversing transmission, so that last character should be an F, not a 6, but there may have been another variant of the power reversing transmission that used the letter G, which is easier to confuse with a 6.

The serial number C138327 is a 1966 serial number, from near the middle of the year

That third number, 7007, is not a valid production code.

There should be another number on the left side of the transmission on the same flat spot, which would be the production code for the transmission itself. If you can find that, post it and we can tell you when the transmission was assembled, and the tractor was probably assembled a few months after that.

The more common manual reversing transmission was the 6x4 (code K), and the more common 4x4 transmission was a power reversing version (code F).
