Ford 6000 Commander
Ford 6000 Commander plowing bean stuble fall 2003 in
northern Indiana. It has a Selecto-Speed transmission. It
was Ford's first try at a power shift. 10 forward and 2
reverse speeds.
Re: Ford 6000 Commander
another pic. Is only using a three bottom fully mounted. Was
supposed to be a rated 5 plow tractor. Ford's first big
tractor. This one is a 6 cylinder engine. It is a gas
burner. They had a diesel and propane version. Built
approximate in 1962. First ones were red and white before
the recall. Then all were blue and white when Ford
consolidated it's world operations.

Hi JD 70...

WOW, it is a cute looking Ford... Was it only made for the
states, because i have never seen ore heard of it here in
Denmark ore seen it in brochures? Did they only made this
model ore some other also?

Re: Ford 6000 Commander
Hi Bjarne, Might check out this web site. It shows a red
6000 Commander. It was pre recall.
I am not sure if they were availible other than the states.
As far as I know it was the only ford to look like that.
I always thought they were a nice looking tractor.
Select-o-Speeds were fun to drive. Could be a little jerky
between 5th and 6th speed. Some people jerk-o-matics or
slip-o-matics. I always like them though.
