1950 Ford 8N (rebuilt) with implements (Virginia)

I took an opportunity in a new state and need to unload some things. I have a a 1950 Ford 8N with several implements. It was completely rebuilt and has 10 hours on it since. It comes with a post-hole digger, 5' rear blade, and a boom pole.

...oh, and it has the ARPS system which turns it into a tracked vehicle. Easy to pull on and off as needed. Best all-terrain vehicle I've owned

Located near Warrenton, Virginia.

8n

Portion of the sale goes directly to SOCNET.

Shit, I forgot. 4k for everything. The implements I bought this year and that's worth over a grand by itself. The ARPS system is worth about a grand, too. I just need to unload this and I'll be taking a loss.

I will ask around. I may take the blade. Is it a box blade or angle blade?

I may take a video of it going around in dense forest. With the boom pole and some chains, I've dragged massive logs out to be cut and split.

I really don't need it, but could use it.

Hope it finds a good home.

If I were still living in Kentucky I would be all over this deal.

Alas....

That's a killer tractor at a rock solid price...if I had a dollar for every hour I spent walking behind one of those, or sitting in that damn metal seat. Lord...

That's a truly wonderful deal.
I recently sold my 1974 JD140 with 3 point, implements & belly mower and really do miss it. The zero turn that I got in it's place just isn't the same beast.

I did have a dollar for every hour....that was what haying and farm help paid in the late 70's and early 80's in rural Vermont . At least for high school boys. Likely grown men earned a little more.

My ole man was a little tighter, my pay was a roof over my head and food on the table. Never seemed like the best of deals to me, but it was the best deal I got at the time.

I split wood for my father on that deal....pretty tough to refuse. School vacation began with him taking me to buy handles for the ax and maul. I could throw hay in my free time.
