Yes, Kirk, I thought that exactly too. We'll have to wait and see but we now know s/n 9N-501 is bogus. The hood and fenders are pretty much the only original early 9N parts on it so maybe he will use them and part out the rest. As I said earlier, every early 9N I've seen at auctions in the past two years have all had incorrect parts on them our discussions here gave fair warning so if he didn't do his homework, that's his own fault. Many 'all original' tractors like that were restored by a place or a fella who didn't really know what a true 'all original' 9N should have. They should really be called refurbished. There are but maybe a dozen or so people in the world who know what an early '39 9N should have. And none of them work at these 'restoration' places.
