1952 Ford 8N

Apr 08, 2011

This tractor is featured for the month of April in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.

You probably haven’t seen a tricycle 8N like this in the Midwest, because they were designed for cotton and narrow-row vegetable growers by a firm in California. The history is a little foggy, but it’s believed several hundred of these tricycle kits were made for 8N and 9N tractors, and collector have them now. Tricycle’s main fabrications are the large casting from oil pan forward, the yoke to hold the single front wheel and the steering lever attached to the yoke. Also, note the taller rear tires—size 10 x 38” in the 1940s and ‘50s, replacing the smaller 28” rear tires on conventional Fords. Ford did produce its own tricycle modles in the mid-‘50s when it introduced the 7000 and 800 series.
