There were at least 12 sets of the original 9N Tractor Blueprints and all pertinent Engineering Information related made and used during the Ford-Ferguson lawsuit. The Henry Ford Museum had them all and back in the late 80's the curator and crew there decided that much of the archived artifacts, tractor items included, were obsolete and so they held an auction. If indeed you have one of these sets, I don't know what to tell you about value. I'd certainly love to own a set myself, but depending on price, may be out of my league. Back in 2006, I met Don Barkley and Harold Brock at the F/FCA show in Penfield, Illinois, and one day the three of us sat down and looked at Dons' set of 9N Blueprints. Mr. Brock was in awe as he hadn't seen them since 1948. I was in awe as well. Perhaps you can contact Don at Just8ns and ask him. He is now retired, the business is owned by his son Derek now, but Don still shows up at the shop a few days during the week. Put me on your list of potential buyers though. I am most interested in the machinery, suppliers, and detailed part drawings.
