Ford built the 8N series tractor from 1947 through 1952. It was a
workhorse and became the top-selling individual tractor of all time
in North America. The 8N had upgrades from the earlier 2N model
including an available 4-speed manual transmission and a 3-point
hitch that was equipped with an new upgrade called 'Position
Control' that allowed the user to set and keep the height of an
implement. It was also the first Ford tractor with the classic 'Red
Belly' paint scheme. This fully restored 1951 Ford 8N (showing 7.9
hrs.) has been in a local collection for years. The standard
powerplant for the 8N model was a 120ci 4-cylinder flathead with an
output of 27hp. This tractor is equipped with the Funk 6-Cylinder
Conversion Package. In 1948, the Glover Equipment Company started
converting Ford N-Series tractors to use Ford's 95 horsepower
industrial 6-cylinder flathead engine. Glover teamed up with the
Funk Aircraft Company and began manufacturing and selling the Funk
conversion kits for N-Series tractors. Most of the Funk conversion
kits were sold and installed at the dealer. It is estimated that
only about 5,000 8N tractors were fitted with this Funk conversion.
Backed by the constant-mesh helical gear 4-speed, the Ford-Funk
tractor was a more versatile machine. The hydraulics system of the
8N is also powerful and reliable. It consists of a piston pump
driven directly by the PTO shaft and a self-contained hydraulic
unit with ram cylinder and control linkage. Our restored Ford 8N
tractor is ready for your next parade/show, or it will go to work
for you. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
