Vehicle Description

1950 Ford 8N Tractor

The Ford N-series tractors were a line of farm tractors produced by Ford between 1939 and 1952, spanning the 9N, 2N, and 8N models. The 9N was the first American-made production-model tractor to incorporate Harry Ferguson's three-point hitch system, a design still used on most modern tractors today. It was released in October 1939. The 2N, introduced in 1942, was the 9N with some improved details. The 8N, which debuted in July 1947, was a largely new machine featuring more power and an improved transmission. By some measures the 8N became the most popular farm tractor of all time in North America. Over 530,000 units of 8N were sold worldwide; the Fordson Model F had sold over 650,000 units worldwide, but in North American sales the 8N surpassed it in popular acclaim and units sold.

For consignment, a fully restored and as just as fine as they come, and cosmetically nearly perfect '50 Ford 8N. At first glance it looks the part of a fully restored and ready to work or show farm implement but closer inspection reveals it's got the heart of a muscle car...maybe even a wild Mustang?

Exterior
Bathed in correct Medium Gray and Vermillion Red with not a hint of rust, all panels have been fashioned to fit perfectly and with the cowl-less engine bay, reveals the engine and gives the owner the ability to do some wrenching even with the upward pointing header tubes. A front spread wheel setup gives much better stability than a row crop tractor, but caution must be taken as not to crush any precious plants, not that you're going to be doing any farming with this beast. Gray painted wheels are wrapped in newer 4.00-19 tractor front tires, and with the lack of front suspension slow speeds are encouraged but near impossible thanks to the V8. As we move back, the farmers seat area has all the controls within arms reach including a centrally mounted steering wheel and gauge cluster complete with a tachometer and supporting gauges all by SunPro meter. On the floor is the shifter and to the left and right of the seat are various levers for controls, meanwhile brake control pedals are on the floor as well. Large curved fenders protect the driver from the rear Vee treaded 13.6x28 tires along with more large gray painted wheels and a an industrial style flood light adorns the rear of the left fender along with the hitch, PTO output and 3 point attachment assembly.

Drivetrain
Long gone is the 134ci format 4-cylinder making 32hp and in its place is a 302ci Ford V8. This engine is fed the proper amount of air and fossils via a 2bbl carburetor and zoomie style headers pointing at the sky are on for the exhale. The transmission is a 4 gear forward and 1 reverse type. The factory rear axle is still turning the rear tires.

Drive-Ability
A twist of the key and the Ford V8 roared to life. It took some time to get accustomed to the controls but once mastered driving was a breeze. This tractor was made more for exhibitions rather than pulling or farming but with the unlimited power afforded by the V8 one must be very careful as to maintain control and remain in the driver's seat.

A wonderfully restored to museum quality piece and a finer example would be hard to find. A homologation from the beginnings of when Ford was making its own tractors, when competition was fierce, and loyalty among farmers was even greater but with a later model Ford powerplant to impress the best of them and even lay down some rubber if the mood strikes you!
