ROPS for Jubilee Ford

I am looking for a ROPS for a 1953 Ford Tractor. New or used, I would take either. I do not seem to find a company that makes them. Or I would buy a used one if in good condition. I would appreciate any help.....Soyroy

Re: ROPS for Jubilee Ford

If wanting a real ROPS then buy a different, newer tractor.  If just wanting a canopy or FOPS you might find something.  That tractor's rear axle doesn't have the structural capability to mount a ROPS; it wouldn't pass a ROPS test and could fail in an actual roll over.  No manufacturer is going to expose themselves to such a liability.  Possibly could design a system that "wraps around" the transmission/differential case that would handle the structural loads/ but it would be a real eyesore and pretty much one-of-a-kind; probably you would be the only buyer.   If not operating on any significant slope, just forget-about-it.  Otherwise buy a newer tractor that was designed to accommodate an actual ROPS.

Have you tried the salvage yards? Might find a will fit

Re: ROPS for Jubilee Ford

I got a ROPS for my Oliver from Saginaw County Tractor.  They don't advertise for Ford, but who knows?  The price is right.

Also, try Yesterday's Tractors .  Go to the Ford section and search on jubilee rops.  There are some hints, altough I didn't see a specific hit right offf the bat.  But, some leads.
