The 2N and 9N used a large center 6 lug wheel and the 8N used a 8 lug wheel.

Man, I should know this because one of my first 'real' jobs was being a parts guy at a Ford/New Holland tractor dealership. We sold tons of antique tractor parts.

I can't think of any obvious differences, but in '50 I believe they added an inner rear wheel seal to stop the leakage issues the earlier N series tractors had. I'm sure that's not the answer you're looking for, though.

Maybe '50 was the year they started putting the Ford script on the fenders?

I'm going to kick myself when you tell us the answer.

Yes sir Joe, 50 was the first year for the "Ford" script on the rear fenders. The other difference was teh 47-49 engines used a front mount distributor like the 2N and 9N, the 50-52 used a side mount distributor. Your floor Joe

Thanks, Kelly. As I suspected, I AM kicking myself right now. I've asked hundreds of people if their tractor has a front or side distributor.

Next question:

What car is this? (year, make and model)


Note: Some logos have been photoshopped out.

Joe that would be a Ford speedo and steering wheel, most likely full size car,so I'm going LTD, and guessing around 1970. The ignition and speedo look just like my F100 vintage 1970. So 1970 ford LTD? Unless yopu are asking about the car infront on the ford and that appears to be a 56 Chevy , possibly a 55 I can't really see it well enough due to it being fuzzy..

Haha, I didn't notice that. You must have a much better computer monitor than I have. In front of this car is a V-front trailer clad with diamond plate. The reflection in the diamond plate is a '54 Lincoln Capri.

Yes it is a 1968 Ford full-size. Not an LTD, but a Galaxie 500....close enough for me.

My 68 Galaxie fastback.


Kelly, the floor is yours...
