I am looking into purchasing a Farmall tractor and
am trying to determine if this is a Regular or an
F-20, or perhaps something different all together.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

That is a 38 or 39 F20. Only the last ones had two brake pedals.

The tag giving the model and serial number should be under the gas tank on one of the supports

Thanks for the super fast reply! I don't have possesion of the tractor yet, was wondering before I bought it. But the two brake pedals I guess is a giveaway! I was hoping it would have been a Regular, but the F-20 was not much different was it?

You do know the F in this case stands for "Fire ant", don't you?

A Regular will have an open steering gear on top of the bolster.

Brake pedals, split-rim wheels and enclosed steering could have been added. The serial number on the left rail is the best indicator. Compare that number to the chart to the left on this page.
Post more pictures. It still might be a Regular.

It appears to be a late model F-20. Name plate should be on rear of tool box. serial numbers should be on that plate and also stamped on one of the frame rails, and on the side of the engine. F-20's and Regulars are very simular. most parts will even interchange. A regular has open steering gears, 3 spead transmission, and a different manifold carburater set up (down draft exhaust and no hole in the hood). alot of regulars and F-20's are found today bearing each others parts. for example a regular may be found with alot of f-20 parts on it.

Thanks for all the great replies! I will have to research the tag if I am successful in getting it.

Fire Ant?

I love this site, my 2 cents ( from a very small piggybank),I believe the regular will have a matching serial number stamped in the frame rail just below the engine number. A number here means a pretty certain bet it began life as a Regular. The F series did not have numbered frames and nobody ever changes out the rails.
just my 2 cents, maybe the gurus will confirm

Actually the F20 and F30 DID have the serial number stamped on the frames as well. While the Regular had the serial number stamped on the left frame rail just in front of the radiator, the F20 and F30 had it stamped on the left frame rail just behind the clutch housing. While the Regular did not use a serial number prefix on the frame, the F20 used an FA prefix and the F30 used FB.

Based on what I have learned about Farmall Regulars and F20 tractors from my husband, other YT folks, books and manuals (only over the last two years though)...

It looks like our F20.
Would be fun to get it running… and would look especially cool if kept rusty – but If you have to paint it, then you have to paint it.

Looks to be in original condition to me… the factory cast iron wheel hubs point to an F-20 (though wheels can/could be switched over time.

Look at the bottom side of the rear axle housing...
[b]If it DOES HAVE bolt holes there for mounting a PTO standardizer
(a.k.a PTO extension) - then it is an F20. The Regular did not have those holes as they were produced with short PTO systems... though that extension could be added as an after-market item. But on Regulars, they had to be mounted using a triangular bracket between the PTO mounting-frame and the rear-end of the tractor...actually utilizing the bolts for the rear-end cover.

Look at the tool box (this is where serial tags were affixed on Regulars AND F20’s). Even if the tag is missing… it will still provide a clue: Regular tags were attached using only 2 rivets – F20 tags were attached using 4 rivets. So a Regular should only have two holes in the tool box – while and F20 will have 4 holes.

Carburetor on a Regular is brass… and looks like a large brass snail.

An EARLY Regular CAN have an upright exhaust - some early experimental models were made that way… later Regulars exhausted out the bottom and have the cast iron “potato muffler”.

Just recalling a post many years back from down south (and the pics look down south) where guys were running into ants when pulling old tractors out of fence rows. Up here it is hornets.
