Leon Tucker celebrates his Ford 9N tractor’s 80th birthday

One farm is celebrating a very special birthday this year!

Angela sent us these photos of her grandpa, Leon Tucker, and his Ford 9N tractor. It was purchased by Leon’s father in Indiana in 1941.

Leon loves that his 9N is easy to start despite its age. It still runs well and has been a reliable tractor for him and his farm for raking hay and mowing. Leon plans to pass the tractor on to his son, who he hopes will be able to celebrate the 9N’s 100th birthday and continue to keep it in the family.
