Yes indeed. June 29, 1939 was the day the new Ford with Ferguson System 9N Tractor was unveiled to the world at Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, in Dearborn, Michigan. 2019 will be the 80th birthday of the 9N. That's quite a milestone considering there are many 1939 9Ns still in operation. Two years ago I began to contact various organizations as well as early 9N owners about a special Ford Tractor only show to commemorate this event. I had contacted the Henry Ford/Greenfield Village and various tractor clubs, local and out of state. My attempts proved futile as nobody expressed any interest. Likewise, only two or three early 9N owners expressed any interest in attending. Most tractor clubs plan event a few years in advance so dates and featured tractors are already penciled in, but I fail to see how this special day slipped by them. I haven't totally given up yet, but the date is less than a year away now.
