Ford is road-ready

| December 2006

In August, a friend and I attended the Northeast Indiana Steam & Gas show at LaGrange, Ind. As we walked down the rows of beautiful tractors, we saw a Ford 8N. I counted six spark plugs on the side of the engine and told my friend that it must be a Funk conversion. As we passed by, I looked back and there were six more spark plugs on the other side of the engine.

I went back and asked the creator, Jim Konger, what on earth kind of engine he'd put in the tractor. He told me the engine was a 1942 Lincoln Zephyr flat-head V-12. The tractor was truly a work of art!
