Not too many left. People tend to collect what they remember from their youth, and the "F" & "N" Fordsons were obsolete (but STILL being made) by the mid 1930's. If you had a farm that used one as its primary tractor, you'd probably be pushing 90+ years by now, and cranking that tractor is a young man's game. I have no real-world farming experience with a Fordson, but I do appreciate its historical significance. It is the direct ancestor to all my later Ford tractors.

I have a 1923 Fordson, but when it comes time to take a tractor to a show it usually gets left behind unless they are the featured tractor. Its just too slow, hard to maneuver (and start in public) and those cleats and skid rings will do a number on the showground grass and blacktop! When I do take it to an All Makes show, it is usually the only one there. Years ago, displaying a Fordson would draw a steady stream of old guys eager to check it out, sit on it, watch you start it, listen to the rear axle whine or tell you their Fordson horror stories. Those guys are mostly gone now.

It is true that those who have a Fordson seem to have at least a few in the fencerow. I have 2 extra junkers myself!

I have 1924 ? Has Fenders (oblong square tool box door) ,we just got it running. They are a tuff project ,not kidding. Dont see many here at shows any more. One if youre lucky. Use to see five or six at Ashtabula county antique engine show if Keith Romeg from Madison shows up. If you go to tristates antique engine show In Portland ind. you will see Duane Helman with one. He one of the best in Ohio ,or National IMO . Dont pass up the chance to talk to him in this area.
I have the same problem concrete driveway ,I use carpet runners to get across without scuffing , just a pain . Ive not found a solution other than me Miller has ribbing you have to put on . Thought about a traction belt , so expensive. I want to look nice . Gouser made of rubber.
As far as starting not enough experience with that ,I use a six volt battery so far ,starts pretty quick in cold weather. .started one kick in January when I primer mixer.
I will show mine , but I have to borrow truck and trailer . So not going to far ,
At a big shows your lucky to see one , National threshers reunion zero , half century of progress zero , pioneer antique ,zero
Good post topic

I don't have any F's. Never had the desire for one like I did for a Model T. I do have a
few N's and E27N's that I'm ready to sell. I remember them from my childhood, but I mostly bought them to have something different from the popular tractors at the show.

Are you buying? And from where? One neighbor asked about getting one for yard art. It seems a comfort to drive into a farm yard and see an old tractor resting alongside a shed that seems to express the history of the place.

When I used to bring my Fordsons to the show, I had the only pre-1952 models there. Lots of Fordson New Majors and Dextas and the grey and red Fords. But even those guys are passing on. The widows don't seem to want to sell them. Afraid to take the lower offers. My brother and I are in the middle of rehabilitating a 1953 model. The older ones just aren't happening with me anymore.

There are rubber-tired rims that were sold to interchange with the lugged wheels.
They were interchangeable all the way up to 1939. The front wheels from up to
1964 will slip right on the old Fordsons, I believe. Tires cost, though.
