In Reply to: Aluminum fenders/hood from our 9N tractors? posted by Michael J. Murphy on January 04, 2015 at 16:12:30:
Early 9N tractors up to about s/n 700/800 had aluminum hoods, doglegs, and a horizontal bar front grill -ALL very collectable nowadays for us early 9N restorers. Fenders were never made of aluminum though, but did have double ribs. The tractor was all painted Ford 9N dark Grey but like Rock said, restorers nowadays polish them shiny aluminum. Got the early small generator and voltage regulator too? Four spoke steering wheel? Stash them away and replace with steel as suggested if you are going to use the tractor other than show. BTW you poste don the IMPLEMENTS forum -no big mistake just might get seen more on the regular N-BOARD forum.
