Description of Ford Tractor

Year & Model of Tractor:  1953 Ford Golden Jubilee NAA

Significant Features:  3-point lift hitch, power take-off, 6 foot grader blade, slip scoop, original owner’s manual plus I&T Shop Service manual.  Both front and rear hitches.  Burns regular gas.  New battery in July 2013.  Rear tires look new.  Always garaged.

Historical facts from Hemmings Motor News:

  • In celebration of its 50th anniversary in 1953, Ford rolled out a new compact tractor to replace the N-series.  The 1953 NAA boasted 50th-year Golden Jubilee badging, an overhead-valve “Red Tiger” four-cylinder engine, a four-speed transmission, and streamlined styling.
  • The NAA’s Solid System hydraulics relies on an engine-driven hydraulic pump rather than the PTO-driven pump that was standard on the N-series tractors.
  • The NAA enjoys a strong following and a dependable return on investment.  The new and used parts availability for these tractors is excellent.
  • Expect to pay upwards of $5,000 for excellent examples, though typical used NAA tractors trade regularly in the $2,500 range.

The tractor starts easily (with correct technique) and runs great.  It has been used for moving a utility trailer, mowing, plowing snow and grading stone driveway.  Last used for plowing snow in February 2014.

Using only pictures, a dealer has appraised the tractor to be worth approximately $2,500 plus $150 for the grader blade and $50 for the slip scoop.  He is willing to sell it on consignment or buy it outright for $1,500.
