Quote There were many restored and original auto’s and steam machines on display but this one caught my eye. The 1941 Ford Fergunson 9-N airplane tug. This is the re-conversion that Ford made to the tractor, and were used in the pacific extensively, both on airfields and on the aircraft carriers (you see these in the background of most US war films, though the amount of Ford 9N, or Ford 9-N are few in number today). To give you an idea, these would have been the type on Wake Island (attacked at the same time as Pearl Harbor where 1,200+ civilian contractors were building a defense system. There were also 550 marines and a few wildcats). If this is a 1941, it was pre-attack, and not part of the mass production of these for the war effort from 1942-45.

All Ford 9Ns can be called Ford-Ferguson 9Ns.

Could this be called a Moto-Tug or is it pre-Moto-Tug?

it's likely authentic WW2 stock footage

dunno about the tug designation should be just Ford 9N with TUG conversion as extra info
