  • Nice N tractor for sale Indiana
  • Here is a reasonably priced 8N tractor that looks good has been stored for a while and would make a nice one for someone to use or restore. No affiliate with the owner.

  • HiYa Larry-
    There are hundreds, maybe thousands of nice N's for sale out there. The problem these days is no one is interested. The interest in antique tractors and equipment in general has waned to the point everyone has what they want and some have decided to move on and get out of the field (pun intended)yet can't sell the machines they have for a fair, decent price. Look at our ADS section here alone. The vintage early 9N folks can't sell theirs now as nobody is interested. The MECUM auctions bring $30,000 because they have the national exposure and fellas don't do their homework and know what is original and what isn't. Every early 9Nexcept one that has sold for beaucoup bucks has been incorrect. Heck I saw one with a 12V convulsion on it. Guys want something to collect in their museums and jump at the first thing not knowing what to look for and them Mecum sellers don't know squat, they only list what the PO tells them to and some of those don't know. I know of a guy with a restored original early 9N who had to sell his at auction for $1200. Look at guys on Craigs List or fleabay trying to sell their nicely painted N's, most with incorrect parts, for $5k-$6k and can't understand why they get no bids. A nicely restored N is not going to bring the true value of the thing. It's just sad state, a reflection on the times, and the fact not many young people are interested in these antique. One can find a decent working Ford N machine for $12000 - $1800 these days.

  • Re: Nice N tractor for sale Indiana
  • That's interesting. .Thanks for the information. I just thought someone in Indiana might be looking for one to use or restore and that one looked like it would be a good candidate. I love my 3000 but am kind of missing my 8N I sold. Might just have to buy another when I retire to have a project. I really enjoy reading your forum here. Look at it daily.

  • Yes, and for the price of tractors today, you can get a better tractor like a 600/800 or even Thousand Series for the same or slightly more price.

    Why buy an 8N when you can get an 860 with more HP, live PTO/Live hydraulics, and power steering?
