If you look in the "manuals" section of the website, you will find sales literature for the Funk V-8 conversion. Funk marketed conversion kits from about 1948-1952. Their six cylinder conversion kits were popular, with about 5,000 kits sold. The V-8 kits were not as popular, with only a few hundred sold.
In more recent years, entreprenurs have made and marketed conversion kits to install a wide variety of motors in the Ford 9N/2N/8N family of tractors. I have even seen pictures of a tractor with a turbine engine.
As others have told you, Ford never marketed a V-8 tractor on their own.
