As far as Fordsons go, this one is very original. I do not see anything that would be a wrong year part for a '25/'26 Fordson. All I can see that is missing is the coil box lid (availible new), Coils (availible new), throttle linkage, and step across fender brackets (same as Model T running truck board). The fan looks to be an after market one with an internal governor, but missing the linkage. There is also some bracket above the timer that may have also been from some type of other aftermarket governor.
One thing to take a close look at is behind the coil box. Looking at the pictures I think I may see a crack in the block, its hard to tell. This was a very common area for the Fordson blocks to crack. These can be welded, but detracts from the price somewhat. It is a definite plus to have the complete manifold and vaporizor setup, although it is a Holley 295 that can be somewhat tricky to keep running good.
Being stuck does not scare me, many times it is just the valves that are stuck. But any old Fordson is a gamble, as one with poor bearings may cost more than it is worth to have it rebabbited.
As far as going with steel wheels, I love steel as it makes it look alot older. And they tend to stand out at shows today. I was at 2 small shows this year where my Fordson was the only tractor on steel. As for an investment, the John Deere D will always be worth more, but never as cool (at least in my baised opinion).
