Default Supercharged flathead V8 8n tractor video

V8 tractor starts at about the 1:58 mark.
I thought I might do this to my 8n someday, but I sold it when I needed the room for my '41 coupe.

I enjoyed it, also. I have a antique, 11 tractor collection, 6 of them Fords.

There are a couple of Funk tractors, in my area. A 226 and 223 OHV, version.

I have seen that tractor at some car shows over the years. Always draws a crowd.

Guy got crazy with the chrome acorn nuts. Put a blade on the front and you can clear some driveways in style in the winter. Neat!

I got a hold of the guy that owns it. So here you go. He says it's for sale, too, $8000. Over priced if you ask me but, to each his own.

If anyone's interested, contact me, I'll give you the phone #.

Here is a link to the 8n turbine powered tractor that was donated to the Early Ford V8 Foundation Museum in Auburn, In. recently.
