    They came out in 1961 but that,s all I have on it but guessing I,d think it,s about a 1963 or possibly a 64 or could be a year later than that but that gives you an idea but guys on here have a book with all SNs & when they were built so I,m sure someone will come back with the exact year it was made.You have a good machine there but in my area here they were not as popular as the D6 or D8 as they were a kind of in between tractor for size too big for smaller jobs & not big enough for big jobs but that didn,t take anything away from it.This is what I observed here in my area as working for the dealer I saw this on sales and service. There was lots of coal strippings and road construction so the bigger D8s & 9s were used and the D6s on smaller construction and grading work.

    Best I can tell you is your tractor is a 1968 model--48A10214 thru 12094 is a 1968 model--1969 is12095 thru 13718 is 1969 . Have a few Parts for one if
    you need them . Yours is proably a 180HP model ,better than the 160HP.
    A lot of parts from a D7F from the motor back will work on yours.

    Al Engines, I guess they didn,t make as many as I guessed so I guess I,ll have to get one of those books with all the SN years made. My book is a Cat dealer SNID book but only lists the start up date of production so I guess my experience on lower sales was all over the country than just here in my area for the D7s.
