  • Great looking class of March 2018.

    My observation, the 1944 and 1945 mentioned as 9N's. Serial number on engine would start with 9N but are actually 2N tractors. Early on when I started restoring tractors, I made the same mistake.
    9N 1939-1941
    2N 1942-1947
    8N 1948-1952

  • What you see with the registry entry post is what I have copied and pasted from the entries that were sent to me. When I put them into the actual tractor registry, I correct them. I don't have time to edit them twice. I usually spend some time helping people figure out what year they actually have. About 50% of the entries I get have the wrong model years associated with them.

  • And thank you for all of your efforts. It is difficult to properly ID "old" stuff. I would not recognize any of my early childhood friends today. LOL Joking aside, when buying older stuff it is interesting some of the claims that sellers make about age and condition, options, details, etc. I'm sure that I may be guilty of ignorance somewhere along the way. Buyer beware...and do research.

  • Yep, a common minor error. The 9N was produced up thru 1942 too. In February, 1942, all production at Ford was stopped due to the US War Board directive. There were about 10,000 or so units built up til then. The 2N model wasn't built/released until late 1942, about October/November. Also, the FORD script wasn't added to the fenders until 1950. All 9N's and 2N's had the "9N" prefix in the serial number -there is no such thing as a '2N' prefixed serial number. It's always cool to see these restored machines.
