It's a Ford basic tractor called Ford County. County was independt organisation who build that kind of Tractors for Leyland and IH too. I think one of the first County modification tractor was made -68 and it was to be based on -68 model Ford 5000. I think last County basic Ford was made in 1990. Then they shut down the factory and organisation. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

I think that county maybe did some modications early -60 as well but i'm not sure of that. So more information is welcome becuse i'm not a expert on this case.

This is a county 1474 short nose. Guess its built on TW25, very few were built. Been reading that short nose were made for the Irish market especially. I might be very wrong. Serge County is older than that. Most famous county might be Super 6.

The county 1474 short nose are based at ford 9700 and tw 20. They are sold in lots of countries and not only for the irish market. There was also a export version of the tractor without cab and that was the type 1464. The 1474 long nose is the one where only a few were made of.

county commercial cars,to give them their full title started business in the 1920's converting ford lorries thats where their name comes from then after ww2 they started converting fordson tractors by fitting them with tracks just like roadless did and in early sixties they started building 4wheel drive tractors,and to correct what has been said earlier in this thread county was an independent company from ford so they bought the ford skid units from ford and built these tractors,badged and sold as county's not ford county's which makes me cringe as ford had nothing to do with these tractors apart from supply skid units and sell them via the ford dealer network,so these tractors arent conversions or modified for ford they were built by county to be sold as county's.the only ford that county did convert for ford was the 8100&8200.
if it wasnt for ford catching onto the idea of building their own 4wheel drive tractors in the late 70's early 80's the likes of county,roadless,muir-hill might still be here
