    Ford 6600 Serial Number Info

    Can anyone tell me anything from the serial codes on this build plate of my grandfathers Ford 6600. As far as i know it was built in England imported to Australia, not sure what year. Hour meter shows 4658. He was the original owner and said he bought it in the early 80s new at a discounted price.




    Just a little backstory if anyone's interested. My grandfather had the tractor for years on our family's cane farm and as a kid growing up I learned to drive and plough with it. Around 1992 it was demoted as the prime paddock tractor by a new (at the time) ford 6810 and the 6600 mainly carried out lighter duties there after. Around 1994 it was hitched on to a 5 ton cane tipper for cane harvesting and later became the spare tipper tractor if anything was to go wrong with the 2 JD 3350s. From the time I left high school till about age 24 I helped out on the farm driving the cane harvester and was lucky enough to spend heaps of time working with my grandfather before he retired. The picture below was taken around 2006 when my grandfather was hauling out on the 6600 beside me on the cane harvester. My grandfather at the time was 78 and I would have been 21.



    After I left the farm in 2009 my Uncle sold the 6600 to a rainforest reveg corperation near by. I was extremely disappointed to see the tractor go. In May this year my girlfriend and I bought a 5 acre block and Suddenly I required a tractor. I emailed a hand full of places here that had anything to do with Rainforest Reveg and after a while I found my Grandfathers tractor!. It had not been used for 6 months, sat it a shed and only rarely used in the years that the corporation had it. I bought it back for $2500. I plan to do a full restoration on it.

    Well done crankit. Being an MF man, I'm not clued on Ford matters, but I have a recollection there some specialist Ford forums which might be useful. ff might be able to confirm.

    The above number doesn't make much sense. You are looking for a four figure code. Year - 7 would be 1977. Month- A = January, M = December etc. Day- 1-31. Shift A=Midnight, B= Day, C= Afternoon shift.
