1939 Ford-Ferguson 9N
Feb 25, 2010
Considered the father of the modern frame tractor, the 1939 Ford-Ferguson Model 9N was a compact utility row-crop machine with integral hydraulics operating a unique three-point implement attachment. Leading the industry, it provided draft sensing to supply both up and down pressure to the mounted implement. Rubber tires, electric starting, and PTO were standard. More than 78,000 were sold from 1939 to 1941. Ford tractor specialist Roger Forst of Prairie du Chien, Wis., restored this beauty, now rapidly approaching its 70th birthday.
This tractor was featured in the book “The Farm Tractor: 100 Years of North American Tractors,” which is available at bookstores and online booksellers and from www.voyageurpress.com.
