Unless I've misread the information, the model number you provided decodes to the Light Industrial which were painted red and buff.
4**** - 172 ci gas, LP-gas or 172 ci diesel engine
*0*** - Industrial models produced prior to 1963
**30* - Utility-type tractor w/non-adjustable front axle (light industrial)
*0**5 - Select-O-Speed w/hydraulics and single-speed (540 rpm) PTO
"Near the end of 1960 Ford introduced the first of the Thousand series tractors as Industrial models. These tractors were painted red and "buff" and were basically modified "01" series models with a different seat, industrial tread rear tires, and a heavier fixed width front axle. The light industrial models were the 2030 and 4030 with the 4040 being the heavy industrial. It was basically the same as the earlier 1801 industrial tractors."
