Thatīs a GREAT CLASSIC TOY - Congratulation I also like the old tractors and we do have the brands Fendt and Porsche over here, which built pretty nice tractors in the past.

And also your parades in th USA are nice. I watched one pet parade in Saxonburg, a very nice small town near Pittsburgh - that wa really funny

I learned to "drive" on an old 9N just like that. It was my mom's grandfather's tractor.

Wow, that is sweet! I grew up driving one of those. In fact, we restored one my uncle owned about 35 years ago. The one my dad owned is still running strong and owned by my cousin. Every time I see one of those things, it takes me back.

My grandpa has the exact same tractor, and we redid it a few years back when I was in my teens. It has been on my families farm since I believe my great grandpa bought it, thing still runs like a champ to. Congrats on the buy.

I think that is the same tractor as my step dad has in Wyoming. Yours looks to be in a bit better shape. When I was just out there I took one photo of it and it is from the left rear. Not the best photo. I'll post a copy and see if you think it's the same tractor.

That's a great project. I'm sure it'll take a little time to get to it though.

When were you last home Dave?
