Yes they are and Steve is very meticulous with his work doing true complete rebuilds of every system. He strives for complete originality and to me, puts the value of these tractors priceless. Considering his are almost 100% original restorations, and that every early 9N that has sold at auctions in the past 10 years have all had at least one or two inaccuracies, yet were sold as being 'all original' anyway. I was at a MECUM auction a few years ago locally with a whole estate of 'restorations' and 3 9Ns were there, one even had a 12V conversion on it! Here are a few pictures of Steve's early (1948)built in 1947, in progress. Note Steve even built his own dolly to support the tractor.
