My tractor calendar for last month showed a photo of a 1944 Ford 2N with 4 wheel drive. I've never seen one with 4WD before, and I wondered if it was a factory option, or a custom made conversion. Can someone tell me about this tractor ? Thanks !

Surely not an elenco conversion. I don't even think it's a sherman napco conversion. With both of these conversions they weren't available for an N tractor. It would have been the later models. More like a homegrown, Maybe something off a ford bronco II or more likely a jeep axle.
Here's a nice 8n that Steve put together.

Cool write-up, thanks for that link Kirk. I imagine it would be fun to own one of these that also had the flathead 8 cylinder conversion :thumbsup:
