1947 Ford 8N Serial # 949

Restoration completion

The original plan was to have this tractor finished in the spring of '98, but sometimes things just don't go according to plan. It took exactly one year after we brought it home to get it all finished. It was a lot of hard work, but the end result made it all worthwhile.

Ready for the shows

Looking good and running good, we were finished just in time to
make the '98 shows at Georgetown, Ohio, and Portland, Indiana.

In the summer of 2000 this tractor was sold and was delivered to it's new
home and owner for light duty work on a farm in Minnesota.
