You didn't miss anything, Caleb. That 2N is suspect; the auction guy didn't even list the serial number on block for one. The generator isn't for a FORD 2N tractor for another. Also, those rear wheels are not the steel wheels for a warhorse. They are the Tip-Toe aftermarket wheels that were sold and you added them to work with the existing wheels. There is a guy in The N-NEWS AD section with a 1942 2N with the steel wheels. You'd have to deal with him to get more info and get the s/n and pictures to determine if they are the correct steelies. Here is how his AD reads:
"1942 9N Ford tractor, serial number 9N-90753, All steel wheels, built during WWII. It runs. $2500. Ed 903-987-4414 (TX)"
His s/n confirms it is a 1942 9N and would fit the warhorse criteria if so. He may have other warhorse parts and didn't list them or just doesn't know. I have no connection to him, just spotted browsing thru the ADS. No pictures. Could kill two birds though with a '42 9N and the steel wheels. He's in TEXAS so you'd have to factor in hauling too. Good luck.
