I see you have had a lot of good advice. However, I will add my two cents worth. I have a 52 8N, with a Doze Blade for the front.
I might suggest that when exploring the worth of a "N", sometimes looks/paint is not so important. I found that a strong, good running, tractor is much more important than a pretty one. To me the hydraulics, clutch, compression, and transmission is the MOST important items. Mine was in great mechanical shape, but certainly not very pretty. Ugly, actually. And, I have grown to love it's non-beauty.
Just some thoughts for you,
