Ford 8N

There are two times in history when the Ford Motor Company absolutely dominated the tractor industry.

The first period, starting in 1917, marked the run of the low-cost Fordson machine. Over that tractor’s 11-year production run, nearly 740,000 Fordsons were sold making it the most popular tractor ever built. So popular were these tractors that John Deere and IHC built and sold implements for use on Fordsons.


The second period of Ford domination came in 1939 with the introduction of the Ford-Ferguson 9N and its successors – the 8N, 2N and NAA. During the 15-year production run of the N-series Fords, over 840,000 of these tractor would be built and sold, marking it as one of the most popular tractor series of all time.

The 8N would become one of the most popular N-Series tractors built...and in that regard would become the second most popular tractor ever built.

Popular doesn't mean it is easy to find parts for 06/29/2014 @ 1:11pm but I did find what I was needing at http://www.Ford8N.com and my little N is happy again.
