    Nice to hear from you Jim... I believe it did, but then finding a 135 with those hours would be a hard task.

    There's an elderly farmer near me recently sadly passed away. He had a Roadless 90 or 95. I'm not sure which but it's based on a preforce ford with 6cyl and small front wheels. This tractor is in very original clean condition, and has a sta-dry weather cab fitted from new. I'm told it came to the farm new in 67/8 and has done little work.

    From what I've been told this tractor is for sale, and is going to be entered in a Cheffins auction somewhere, I'm sure it will be seen in the tractor comics in the forthcomming future.

    It will no doubt be worth less!... We have more than enough tractors here to use and look at without worrying about the TS, although with what I've had offered for it, it's better than cash in the bank.

    Inherited this old girl when my old chap passed away



    I can remember him bringing it home from an auction in about 1965, and he let me drive it from the house to the yard, and I thought I was the bees knees (I was only 12 then). Still runs well, but I don't really know what to do with it as I have nowhere suitable to store it, but it does have some sentimental value.

    Re: Ford and fordson tractors

    from what i can remember there was a 7600, 4100 w/ NH hay turner on it, 6600 and plough driving across the moors......and 7600 crossing a bridge?.....must be some more in there thats only 4.
    Wasn't there a drawing on the front (Diamond Jubilee or something like that)? 1929 > 1979 perhaps?

    You remember this too? One came up on eBay last week. Dam well forgot about it! It was on my watch list too, but it didn't email to remind me. I'll have to have a fiddle in my account.

    You remember and play AgriHazard?

    don't remember agrihazard but do remember Ford did a metrication book way back then......it was ford 5000 days......the pictures for the horse power cross reference had the 8600 & 9600 and I think a 2000 and 3000 together.
    I have an idea it was something offered through farmer and stockbreeder or such like

    Re: Ford and fordson tractors

    when you think about it really a 7600 with Ford cab is probably more collectible (rarer) than a 7000
