If you search the archives you should be able to find a number of cabs that people have made for the N series tractors. I my self do not know of any factory type cabs made other then the heat houser types

There was a factory Dearborn cab, and I'd actually like to know a bit more about them myself! The one I have was supposedly bought new with my 1951 8N. It only has a serial number of around 2100, so I don't think there were many of them made.
It is really not much more than a neat rounded roof, a bit of tubing, and some pretty thin sheet metal legs that attach to the fenders and back of the hood. I THINK they probably came with canvas curtains or tarps that snapped onto the frame, but I'm not sure how the windows fit into it all. I've seen some pics of tractors that look like they have the same roof (minus the legs?) and with what I'm presuming to be home-made metal doors and glass windows.
Over-all, I'm really glad I have mine. It looks really cool, but probably wasn't the most practical thing in the world. In 1951 I'm guessing practical trumped "cool", so hence the low production run.

Here's a pic of my Dearborn cab. I believe it was designated model 23-1. You can see the previous owner got creative with his paint scheme, but the cab was obviously originally grey. I actually like the red, and will probably repaint it that way again someday. The dark red really absorbs the sunlight though and the radiant heat pretty much counter-acts any shade it gives. Like I said earlier... It's not a practical thing.

They come up on ebay once in a while.I have seen a couple listed in the classified ads a couple of years ago.

I got mine up in NH. but it needs a little work.I would consider selling it.

Email me if you are interested in it.

Hopefully he will chime in and fill you in on the details.

That's the second hard-top I've seen like
that, so now I have to believe those are also
original Dearborn doors/windows. Sure hope the
owner does chime in and can maybe provide the
model number!
