A Rare Beauty in the Snow: 1951 Ford 8N with Dearborn Snowplow
Jan 08, 2010
This tractor was featured for the month of January in the 2010 Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
When it’s snowing and blowing in his neck of the woods, owner Steve Parker can barely keep from smiling. The reason is obvious–this ’51 Ford 8N with a rare Dearborn snowplow is raring to go in the snow. It’s a hybrid of sorts, because the tractor came from Iowa, the V-plow from Minnesota, the mounted frame from Illinois, the Bombardier tracks from Wisconsin, and the steel cab from Ohio. The 1951 8N, considered a late version of this best-selling Ford model, featured the flat-head 4-cyl. engine, 119 cu. in. producing 26 PTO hp. It has Ford script fenders and a side-mount distributor.
