This 4000 is unique in Britain. Brought over by USAF for use on airfield. Was disposed of 30+ years ago in auction, and has been sitting in a shed until this year.
The engine was totally seized and took a month to free up. Fuel system contained white powder residue. Possibly caused by it being run on aviation gasoline which burns hotter than regular gas. The gas engine tractors were not built in Ford factory in Britain, nor were any imported here.
The Select-o-Speed has been totally rebuilt, the specification and parts used in the USA built tractors is different to that built in British built tractors.
The original colour was yellow, and had been over painted in the brown thick paint by the USAF. Note the light brown-orange paint is undercoat applied by the current owner who is restoring it for his collection.
What colour were these industrial 4000's painted? He has seen US brochures showing yellow castings with blue fenders & hood. Suggestions please.
