I was wondering how many of these there were made? I bought this thing locally from original owner. It has 1012 hrs. on it and seems to be Ok so far. It set around alot w/fluid in tires so I need some new rims, a repaint, etc. Think it will cost about $4500 for a good repaint including the parts I need. Just wondering if it will be worth it in the end? Kind of a neat tractor though. 618er

Is it a farmall row crop or a utility? There are 4 row crop gas hydros in my neighborhood alone. Not too rare. The utilities would be less common. I think there was a Red Power article on this awhile back that listed production numbers.
