Tell us about yourself a bit.
Is this your first tractor?
Maybe you have a dozen tractors already?
What will you use it for?
I ask this because I've been on this board a good while and have seen a lot of fellows buy an N as their very first tractor and spend a whole Pile of money restoring it.
Then, as they learn more about tractors in general they begin to understand that the Ford Ns, handy, fun and useful as they are, lack desirable features that models just a few years newer will have.
Things like live hydraulics, live or independent PTO, power steering, differential lock, loader capable, more gears, more power, more reliability, remote hydraulic capability, etc, etc are all very desirable on a tractor and can easily be had for much less than you'll spend restoring an N.
Go to it. Have some fun.
But never forget that the market is flooded with nicely restored N Fords that the seller realized too late that those tractors just aren't modern enough to do the things he thought it could do.
