Christmas Eve saw the final wiring done on the 2N. I got her out of the shop and a few photos taken. Tomorrow I'll get to plow the snow off the driveway. But now I'll have to sell her in order to pay for the next project (a 1950 8N).

Happy New Year to you all!!!

Colin, MN

Beautiful job my friend. I sold a nice 861 with a full set of weights to fund another project about three years ago and wish i hadn't. About 15 degrees here this morning. Think i will get on the 8N and just ride around for a while as i love the sound of a new exhaust system when you are on a slight pull in third gear. HAPPY NEW YEAR also.

Thanks! I'm okay selling this one. I've got my first 8N out on the farm and I'll keep the next project - a 1950 8N that was purchased new by my neighbor's Dad - here in town to plow my driveway and do a little garden for my wife.

Hey Tim,

At the moment I have running a '49 8N (Eleanor) and this '47 2N. I also have a '50 8N and a '40 9N, neither of which run.

Have a great New Year, and stay warm!

I seriously thought about doing blue accents instead of black, but I had the black and not the blue ... so that was how that turned out.

We were in your neck of the woods yesterday late afternoon. Sometime I want to make it out to see you. We're only 75 miles from Aitkin. I saw that Roger Wright's has a beater of an N sitting in front of his shop.

How do you know Roger?
He must be getting pretty old by now.
That 8n would be a real good tractor as he always took excellent care of his stuff.
I actually drove that tractor.
Back in 1975 after I got out of the Navy I stopped in there to look at some old cars he had in his lot. He had a couple Nash Metropolotans and a couple early 60s Falcon Rancheros. We got to yacking and he hired me for a couple of days to help him pick up a bunch of scrap and load it on a truck. I drove the N and used a home made boom pole to pick stuff up.
I had forgotton all about that till now.
He was a real nice guy but we didn't get much done as we stood there BSing too much. Of course that was all his fault as no one has ever accused me of being a BSer. :)

I wish I knew him. He sounds like a great guy! We were just driving by and I'm always rubber necking Fords (this fact makes my wife happy) and I saw his sitting in front of his garage. There are a couple of nice ones over at Aitkin Implement as well.

Hi Colin , you did a nice job on the 2n . Selling will be regretted afterwards because I experienced such a thing around 1998 . And I still regret trading my 9n off on my 640 .But at the time , my wife knew how to do that ultimatum thing (you buy ,I will leave). She did the same thing to me in 1972 when my Dad offered me first chance of buying his mint 601 plus all the implements for $2,700.00 . I wish now I would've just did what I wanted to do & could've afforded at that time . She ended up leaving me anyhow in 2000 for the boys playland . No man should ever have to suffer withdrawal with only being allowed to own (1) tractor to play with .After I became a single man in 2001 , I then added a 1952 8n Funk conversion (which needed a full total rebuild)to my collection . If I had money available , I'd buy another Ford to my estate . God bless , Ken

Hey Ken, That's a bummer of a story. I too would give quite a bit to be able to have my Grandpa's tractors from the farm.

I kinda have to sell this one due to small pocket book and limited storage space, though my wife actually would be okay with me keeping it. I have a soft spot for projects and I went a little over-board last winter by purchasing 3 beater tractors, including this one. The market here in Central MN is strong enough that I thought I could justify buying them, keep one, but sell the rest and break even on parts + purchases. We'll see how that works out, but I sure had fun with the project and I brought back to life another N which is well worth it in my opinion.

Colin

Well Colin , you did a great job on that 2n . If i would"ve hung onto that 9n , I"d have 3 tractors . But my X was so dead set against me buying anything that she didn"t benefit from . I learned way too late that she was actually banking some cash in her name only .I had put full trust in her & never had any reason to doubt her . I never once looked in her purse or wanted too . I caught her a couple times going thru my wallet tho . I let her know that my wallet was off limits to her being that we was supposed to have faith & trust in each other . The way I learned of her putting cash in a personal acct was that she told me to get something out of her purse . If that wouldn"t have happened I would"ve never know about it . So , I have no faith or trust in a woman anymore . Several years ago , when I was healthy & stronger , I worked 3 different jobs each day . Then in the winter , I plowed snow full time if need-be . One year when we was doing our yearly taxes , she only had record of just under $20,000.00 income . In my own records I showed nearly $30,000.00 income . I never did learn where all that cash went too .So , that"s one reason I started buying tools & shop equipment . I figured I could at least show where my spending went to . I wish guys with a happy marriage the best , but marriage won"t happen here again . 33 yrs with a untrustworthy woman was a hard & heart wrenching experience for a guy to have to suffer from . Why don"t you use my email address "KCRISMAN@pa.rr.com" instead of using YTs system (more private) . God bless, Ken
