Did the 8N tractors come with a front bumper or was that an add-on? I am just trying to learn a bit of history with my old tractor. This was a work tractor that my Dad purchased from someone when I was probably around 12 years old maybe. I don't really remember how the tractor was when Dad acquired it; or how many previous owners it may have had. I know there are some photos around showing the tractor; I think one with Dad driving the tractor, so I am going to see if my sister has them.
Anyway, here is a photo of the front bumper on the tractor; when I look at other photos of 8N the bumpers seem to be different. I am not interesting in restoring the tractor to showroom; it will remain a work tractor. Even if parts on the tractor are not correct for the year; they are correct to the tractor I have as far as the history of the tractor. Parts would wear out and be replaced with what was available that would work.
