Default Ford combines

Does anyone here have - or know someone who has - a Ford 642 combine or similar (maybe a 640/630/620 or 632/622)? I work for a European farm machinery magazine (www.profi.co.uk) and would like to feature one of these ina magazine article. If anyone has any photos or would be prepared to take some, please leave a message here or contact me at mrickatson@profi.co.uk If anyone can help, I'll send some goodies in return - a free sub to the magazine, or some of our farm machinery DVDS perhaps.
Many thanks
Martin

Alex, I think I have seen the same combine. It sets on the north side of the highway and has a cab...does that sound right?

There is farmer north of Hill City Kansas that has around 8 blue ford combines, some running, some for parts. They all have cabs as well and some look a little different than the others but I do not know the model numbers. We could probably find out if you are serious.

i think i can shed a little light on the Ford Combine info here.

Ford 642 = Claas Dominator 85
Ford 640 = Claas Mercerator
Ford 630 = Claas Senator
Ford 622 = Claas Consul
Ford 620 = Claas Consul (smaller engine and grain tank)
Ford 611 is the only ford combine that was painted red, and was built by oliver for ford before the contract with claas.

the Ford 642 and the 622 were the last models on the ford combine line. the 611 was the first, 620, 630 and 640 were the next models up from the 611.

I am too far away to get any photos but maybe fordboy can sometime. The owner is a neighbor of some of the guys that I have cut for in the past. The combines are all north of Morland, KS. 1 or 2 are in a field and the guy I saw using them lives north of there. I saw him running at least 2 of them and there was at least 4 more in the yard. I do not know if the 2 in the field are owned by the same owner but I think that they are. I could probably call one of the guys and find out the fellows name and go from there if some of you guys want to take a look or get pictures.
