I have posted some pictures of a 1919 Fordson tractor that I own and I need to figure out the value. It is under the "Tractor Talk" as I was having trouble with posting.

If anyone has feedback, that would be great.

If you think it is not a 1919, what year is it? Everything we"ve researched has said it is.

Nice Fordson! It is either a 1935, 1936, or early 1937 English built Fordson model N. These were built in Dagenham, England and inported to the USA up until the 9N ford tractor came out in 1939. English fordsons are realativly some what rare here in the USA as not near as many were imported compared to the earlier American built model F. The coolest thing about this tractor is the Fairway (golf corse) wheels! These wheels were made by Whitehead & Kales to convert the fordson for use in mowing golf corses. As for value, the wheels could be worth around $300-$500 if not rusted thru. The rest of the tractor I would say is worth $500-$800 depending on the condition of the fenders, engine condition, and if the manifold carburator are intact and in good shape. Sadly a tractor like this is not worth the sum of its parts. As a whole I would say it is worth $600-$900 from what I can see. As some what of a comparison, I was at a sale this past weekend where a totally restored 1923 fordson was bid up to $1700, but did not sell. Numerous fordson collectors were there, but were not interested in this tractor at more than that amount. Hope this helps.

Thank you! My husband found the serial number on it and that is how we got the year. The Fordson registry told him it was built in October of 1919. He said the serial number (as much as we could make out) was the same in multiple places. Is it possible that we're not right? Did you see the other posting I put under the regular tractor forum? It has more photos than this one. Any additional feedback is welcomed.

The tractor began to be painted blue and orange for 1933, but very few built during the first year move to England. The leaned-back steering wheel with air intake on the steering column also started in England and ended in 1937. New gas tanks can be bought for $400-$500. F&H rubber-tired wheels were available. Serial number should be about 779154 to 820000. If you have a 1919 number, it is a rebuilt factory spare engine from approximately 1952-1956. I don't know of any place the serial number is stamped except on the engine. Note, that with a worm gear drive you cannot pull the tractor to start it. You'll probably strip some gears. They never had self-starters on the Ag tractors. The magneto would be a German Bosch, but a flat base Fairbanks Morse will fit. It's auction value is in the $1000 range and you would mostly be bidding against scrap buyers because of high scrap prices. I say that with the knowledge that most gas tanks are bad, most magnetos don't work and the engines are not likely to be very good. They had a pretty short service life, and were considered pretty much a throwaway tractor by the farmers that owned them. There were so many better tractors on the market by 1939, including the 9N Ford. Collector's value is an individual thing, being different, being a Ford admirer, regardless, like a Model T. More admired in England for the wartime duty they performed. It will take probably $3000 to fix it up.

Just glad to help out. I looked at the other pictures, and I can guarantee this is not a 1919 Fordson. All features point to between 1935 and early 1937. Could be as early as 1933/1934, but very few of these are in the states. If I was a betting man I would narrow it down to late 1936, as the majority of English fordsons I've come across in the states are late 1936 models. It seems very complete and correct for a 1936, just missing the gas tank. Plese don't let the scrap man have it, it may not be worth alot, but they are still a great tractor. Some clear identifying features of an English model N are extended steering, seat and clutch behind axle, ribbed radiator casting, Fordson name on side of Radiator, water pump, large water washer, and a built in mag drive. Just to make sure your husband is looking at the correct number for a serial number, it is located just above and behind the first exhaust port. This is the only place on the tractor the serial # is stamped. If you are finding the same number in multiple places, that is not a serial number. One final comment, if the number is a small number (like a 1919) check for a 'R' before it. In the late 40's thru early 50's replacement engines were numbered this way. Also I know a few fordson collectors in Ohio that may be interested in this tractor. Hope this helps.Steve

Hi Steve - we haven't heard from the first person we called offering the tractor, so its fair game. Can you provide me the info on the people who could be interested? We're thinking $1,200 OBO.

Thanks!
