Cover Tractor of the Month, Fastline Texas Edition
1952 Ford 8N
Owned and restored by Troy Ashcraft, Dublin, Texas.
This Ford tractor was purchased in September 1952 from the local Ford Tractor Dealership by Mr.and Mrs. Elder Tackett. It was used for shredding weeds, light plowing, pulling a grain drill, sowing various seeds and general farm work on their ranch. After the passing of Mr. Trackett, it was retired to the corner of the work shop area.
Knowing the family–and after some persuading–Mrs. Whitehouse (now) was willing to depart with “her” tractor with the condition it would find a good home and not to have to go to the field again. The 8N has been restored after a year of work and TLC to its original condition (maybe even better) with parts and paint of the original order and is now ready to go to the area’s various tractor shows.
