Eighty years of Ford tractor history, shown in chronological order, are featured in this new series of DVD programmes. Using original colour and black & white promotional and information films professionally made by the Ford Motor Company over a number of decades, this series brings the story of the Ford tractor back to life!
Starting with the original Model F of 1917, through the Standard models of the 1930s and early 40s. Included is a fascinating film "Harness Your Horsepower" from the early 1940s, demonstrating how to maintain the Model N. The Major and New Major machines from the late 40s and 50s are seen working on sugar beet harvesting, bog drainage, and post hole digging. Some feature wrap-around tracks and there's even one being tested with Roadless half-tracks, along with some ingenious inventions such as the robot tractor and the rabbit catcher!
