The Fordson is a 1926 that I bought in 1935. Have used thistractor for many years in my farming operation. The best year Ifarmed 160 acres and shelled about 150,000 bu. of corn with thistractor and a 1927 John Deere Sheller No. 9 which is also in thepicture. I still have the tractor and it runs real good.
