An insight into the development, engineering, production and uses of Fords first all-new tractor.
The Fordson Major tractor was produced in large numbers at Ford´s UK Dagenham factory from 1951 until 1964, and was exported across the world, including to the USA (where it was called the Ford 5000 diesel). Produced with petrol, diesel and kerosene-burning engines, the E1A was the subject of continuous development during its life and was a huge success. Many examples of the E1A can still be found at work on farms today, 50 years after the first models entered production.
This extensively illustrated book provides a unique insight into this classic tractor.
