Does anyone know how many 1600 Series were built in 1963?

I am interested in the 1600 series tractors, and just getting started gathering information on this model tractor. I know they were built from 1962-64, but just wondering approximately how many were built. Thanks for any info you have.

Not sure about the number. We have a lot of 1850's, 1800's, 1750's in the area. Maybe two to as many as four 1650's in the area as well, but far as I know, I have the only 1600D.

According to Brian Rukes book, the serial number range ran from 124420 to 147568. He has production history for 1963 as follows:
Model 1600, series A ......serial # from 127044 to 137709
Model 1600, series B .....serial # from 137710 to 140262
He lists total production numbers as being unknown.
Well, this isn't a lot but it will give you a little something.

1600 Production

You also need to remember a few were built in 1962 and in 1964 production of the 1650 tractors also began in the early fall. Also in 1963 a lot of sales were made because many farmers held off buying a tractor untill they were in production.
