There was a factory Dearborn cab, and I'd actually like to know a bit more about them myself! The one I have was supposedly bought new with my 1951 8N. It only has a serial number of around 2100, so I don't think there were many of them made. It is really not much more than a neat rounded roof, a bit of tubing, and some pretty thin sheet metal legs that attach to the fenders and back of the hood. I THINK they probably came with canvas curtains or tarps that snapped onto the frame, but I'm not sure how the windows fit into it all. I've seen some pics of tractors that look like they have the same roof (minus the legs?) and with what I'm presuming to be home-made metal doors and glass windows. Over-all, I'm really glad I have mine. It looks really cool, but probably wasn't the most practical thing in the world. In 1951 I'm guessing practical trumped "cool", so hence the low production run.

Here's a pic of my Dearborn cab. I believe it was designated model 23-1. You can see the previous owner got creative with his paint scheme, but the cab was obviously originally grey. I actually like the red, and will probably repaint it that way again someday. The dark red really absorbs the sunlight though and the radiant heat pretty much counter-acts any shade it gives. Like I said earlier... It's not a practical thing.
