LIFE BY THE LAKES: All in the family — Sibling Farmall tractors find home, new life in Phelps
PHELPS — Reunited ... and it feels so good.
That’s the case for two Farmall Super MTA tractors with consecutive serial numbers that were purchased 44 years apart ... by the same family, the Adamses of Phelps.
The story of these “sibling” tractors starts in 1969, when Alfred Adams bought the family’s original tractor — its serial number was 62798DS — at an auction. With him were his sons Marvin and Lee, who had the honor of driving the tractor home.

I saw this in the latest Red Power magazine too.

Without reading this article, I don't know if it mentions this but last summer these two tractors were reunited with the tractor that came off the assembly line right ahead of them. So, three consecutively numbered Super MTAs all together at the same tractor shows.
