Customized Ford 8N pedal tractor dazzles with detail.
Above: Gene Gregory with his customized Ford Model 8N. Custom features include a Comfort Cab, half-track, lowered profile, lights and grille.
Left: This beautifully appointed Ford Model 8N features a half-track with floating front track wheel and molded top secured to the sides.
Right: Note the Comfort Cab’s custom features: steering wheel spinner, gauges on the panel, gear shift knob and plastic covering the front windshield. The original Ertl pedal tractor was equipped with a plastic steering wheel and seat. Gene Gregory replaced each with steel versions. The rear opening is designed like that on the original. The curtain, fastened in the “up” position with straps and buckles, could be released in bad weather.
