Ford jubilee vs 8n. I have restored 2 jubilees for others and i just do not like a jubilee. The ford naa golden jubilee was released as part of the 50th anniversary of ford. The 1953 model production began in september 1952 had a special nose badge noting the anniversary.
The history of ford n series tractors. The 8n and 9n ford tractors are very hardy machines that are still popular choices despite being quite old. 1 the 9n was the first american made production model tractor to incorporate harry ferguson s three point hitch system a design still used on most modern tractors today.
Although you may not think that it is so the 9n is actually the older model built around 1939 while the 8n started production 8 years later in 1947. Potential new toy six ft finish and probably a six ft brushog but will be a little little in the front without wheel weights of some kind of weight on the front. 9n vs jubilee vs 600.
In general i am more fond of the 8n than the jubilee but in this case the condition of the both tractors is obviously the key to your decision. An 8n has a significantly better powerweight ratio than a jubilee which may be important if you are going to trailer it. The most noticeable differences between the 8n ford tractor and 2n and 9n other then the new two color paint job was the inclusion of a 4 speed transmission instead of a 3 speed in the 2n and 9n.
