I love my little Ford Tractors, I blame them on Covid, I was bored and had nothing to do, so I bought one, then I bought another, and another, and another and now I have 4 right now and parted one.
This one is "Mutt", my '44 Ford 2N, the most reliable mechanical basterization. It has a '49 8N engine block which has two huge cracks in it that were welded, it has terrible blow by and burns oil, but the SOB starts every time even when it's -20.
I actually bought it for parts for my '42, but got it home and got playing with it and realized the guy I got it off was an idiot and had the timing off, I timed it, freshened up the carb and put a set of points in it and I can't keep it down now.
I hung the loader on it this spring, it's a David Skyline Model P90 made by Midwest products. I love it, it's hands down my favorite tool to have around.

it currently has 272k, my goal is 500k and it's going to make it. I honestly can say I love this truck, I love how it drives, I love how it looks, I love the torque curve of the 360 Magnum, it's been the most reliable truck I've owned, every time anything has failed on it, I've still made it home.
Hard to beat from a truck I bought for $400.00
