Patience, Chris. The Ford Tractor hobby isn't what it used to be, values have declined in the past ten years or so, and interest by the younger generation just isn't there for the most part. To be fair, the entire antique/vintage tractor interest have declined, not just Ford. The older generations that have been carrying this tradition on is also declining as well. Old age prevents all of us from doing things we could do ten, twenty years ago. Health issues, lack of interest, and even death impacts the business. Look at some of the others who too have decided to part with their machines. I believe Harold Cooke, for one example, has had his entire collection of 9N's and 2N's, all or most restored, up for sale for some time and last I heard had not received a single offer. Also, it is important to know that many of the folks still in the antique tractor, cars and trucks too, are of an older generation and don't do the 'computer thing' thus have no access to sites like these. Their main sources of information are clubs and their newsletters, and the few tractor publications like "The N-News"; "The F/FCA Journal"; "Antique Power"; "Ferguson Furrows"; and some others. You might want to try taking out an ad in those too to get more exposure.
