Yep -I think that is one a several implements that never made it to production. In the 2nd photo, the 8N has a Danuser rear blade (with tire) and note the school is Birmingham High School which wasn't too far away from the Dearborn Motors Corporation world headquarters located on the corner of Coolidge highway and Maple roads. By the mid-sixties the towns had all grew in population and thus new schools were built. Birminghgam had three public high schools when I was growing up -Seaholm, Lahser, and Groves. We played the parochial school, Birmingham Brother Rice in sports because we were in the Catholic League. There was also Birmingham Country Day which was an exclusive school for the rich kids, the most famous being Robin Williams as his dad worked for Ford as an executive.
