Ford 600 Series
Ford 600 Parts

Ford 671

A Brief History

The Ford 600 Series tractors began production in 1954, and continued until 1957. Quite similar to the Ford NAA (Golden Jubilee) in design, it used the same 132 cubic inch Red Tiger engine with 31 horsepower. Several different models were made in the 600 Series, and these numbers were used to denote whether they used a particular transmission, hydraulic system, or PTO. The result was five different model numbers: 620, 630, 640, 650 and 660.These break down as follows:

  • Model 620: Four-speed transmission, no PTO or three-point hitch
  • Model 630: Four-speed transmission without PTO
  • Model 640: Four-speed transmission with PTO and with three-point hitch
  • Model 650: Five-speed transmission, non-live PTO with three-point hitch
  • Model 660: Five-speed transmission, live PTO and three-point hitch

All of these tractor carry the "Ford 600" series badge on the radiator.Considered a two-plow utility tractor, this one proved to be very popular with the farmer. Note: the picture shown above is actually of a Ford 671 model. Very similar in appearance, these were built after 1958 and had the Select-O-Speed transmission. A picture of a standard Ford 600 Series tractor (built prior to 1958) was not available at press time!

The Ford 600 Series Today

Although many of these tractors were made, they are very collectible due to their smaller size and favorable design. Many are still in use today on small and large farms alike due to their power and functionality. Parts are readily available. The standard 3-point hitch means that it can be used with today's modern implements (keeping in mind that the implements must fall within the horsepower range of the tractor).
