sublime,I have a '54 too. My Father had 9n,I think,than traded it in for the '54,both was bought new. He like the '54 because it was a little bit bigger. I think the jubilee was only made in '53. All I know is he always said this one is a NAA. And I think the only difference between the 53' and '54 is the emblem on the hood. But only really guessing on that part.

thecfarm,

I'm pretty sure the one I use is a 54 Ford Jubilee at least that is what I was always told.

I know my Grandpa bought it new and it has always been in the family.
Doesn't get used much now and the Carb needs a good cleaning as it wont stay running very long at the moment.

next time I get a chance I'll ask my dad and find out for sure the information on the one we have.

Brought a couple logs in this evening with the arch. Found a couple dead red oaks. I had to back down and cut the log arch pretty sharp to get on the first one. Got kinda dark on the second log.
