Interesting orchard fenders, were these a Ford factory option, 3rd party or shop built?

I would think aftermarket. I think that the owner is in a big blueberry section of the state so they may have been used for that. Looks like it's priced to sell.

According to the parts site, Ford did make orchard (& grove) fenders for the '63-'64 4000, and those do look a lot like the ones in the parts diagram, except that from the looks of them in the parts diagram, the Ford fenders didn't lean forward like those:

On second look, another difference is the Ford fenders look like the outer plate screws to the fender body, and the ones in that craigslist ad look welded in place.

I had a pair of identical fenders on a Ford 800 diesel tractor that I parted out three years ago. I advertised the fenders for sale for $100 each for 16 months with zero interest. Eventually I tossed them in the scrap dumpster.
