All,

This may have been asked before but what was the last year that Case produced "straight" hooded tractors? As best I can tell it was around '80-'81.

Thanks!

Tim

In my opinion, it all depends on how you define the word "year".

Do you mean, the actual year in which a tractor went down the assembly line OR the model year of the tractor? Those are two different things.

Essentially, I don't disagree with Boomer because tractors for the model year 1983 were certainly built in 1983 as well as in the latter part of 1982. If you go by the model year, then my answer would be that the 1983's were the final year of the straight hood design and 1984 was the beginning of the bulged hood and that was also the year of the Black Frame models.

Please qualify the term straight to me (a little naive)
Straight = not gay or bent.

A better description of the hood differences is skinny or fat. The earlier 200/400 hoods are squared off with the sides running basically straight down from the top of the hood whereas the newer ones have formed sides that bulge like love handles and that's what makes them so much sexier! :sidelaugh:
