Details

Starting with the early experiments that in 1917 led to the Model F at Dearborn, Stuart Gibbard's absorbing text is accompanied by a wealth of photographs, many rare and previously unseen.

His book follows the development of Ford tractors on through the Model N and the E27N to the widely successful Diesel Major and the Dexta.The author's meticulous research provides one of the most detailed accounts ever written about Fordson production in Britain. It covers both Cork and Dagenham, and makes full mention of the personalities involved. One of the outstanding aspects of the book is that many of the little-known prototypes are described and shown for the first time.A major section of the book is devoted to the American tractor line, re-established in 1939 with the 9N built in collaboration with Harry Ferguson.

The book concludes in 1964, just before the introduction of the 'worldwide' 6X range.

Winner of Tractor & Machinery magazine's award for the best new book of 1998.
