8N Funk 1952 ?

Report to Moderator

I have the opportunity to buy a 52 Funk (in-line 6) that is in good to fair condition that runs good with fair paint for 3500 dollars. I have never priced one of these before and wonder if this is reasonable. It would seem like a nice thing to have around but wonder if it would be practical. I have 3 other tractors that are all new so it wouldn't be used a lot.

Check out the link below for a little more info on Funks. Before buying, make sure it has the original Funk parts, such as cast starter nose, radiator, governor mount and pulley, carburetor "cap", and hood adapter. These parts are hard or impossible to come by, and would give you reason to dicker on price if it is not completely original. Engine parts are the same as Ford cars and trucks of the late '40's and early '50's, so getting parts for it should not be a big issue.

I wouldn't go any higher on price, and would try to get him down to around $3000 if you can. I would think $3500 would be top price for an unrestored Funk, unless it is in excellent shape. Good Luck.

Early six cylinder Funks had channel iron frame supporting motor, then came cast iron oil pan with flat head six. The Overhead valve six in the Jubilee was the end of the line. IMHO the OHV Jub is the rarest.(of the sixes) The cast pan in an 8N sells for about that on Ebay, or less. Condition, and original pieces (governor, Sherman, Hupp, lights, bumper) make several hundred dollars difference.

The Funk is a cool thing to have if you're into Fords. I believe the 6 cyl version was advertised to have 90 hp compared to 23 hp for the stock 4 cyl engine. The 6 cyl Funk is not as rare as the V8 version.

As far as usefulness, I don't think it's a lot more useful than a stock 8N. The transmission and rear end were still engineered with a 23 hp engine in mind. I think the increased value of a Funk is mainly in the "collectibility" and "gee whiz" factor. Would I buy one for that price? Yeah, probably if I thought I could get away with it at home!

That is an OK price - not too many Funk's around, but they don't go for much more than an 8n. The Funk is like a regular 8n - just a little more power. Easy to get parts for everything but the motor and even the motor has parts available if you do a little searching. It is a great, collectible and useable tractor with the only major limitation being no live PTO or hydraulics. Not a big deal, but you have to get used to it.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
