Fordson Tractor Club, 2160 Carrigan, Turlock, California 95380

The response to the Fordson Tractor Club has been rewarding. There are nearly 400 active (and inactive) members in the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, and the Netherlands.

Quite a bit of interest has been generated in the old Fordson tractor, and now news of the Club's services is traveling by word-of-mouth, and that's great!

Many members are helping (and have helped) to accumulate a wealth of information on the various Fordson models, especially the 'F' manufactured in the United States from 1917-1928. The Club is able to help the members procure parts, literature, publications, and memorabilia which is invaluable in helping to restore and exhibit.

To help in this, the Fordson Tractor Club members have compiled engine serial manufacturing lists, duplication of original colors, lists of replacement gears and bolts, schematics, pictures, Xeroxes of items like all-available carb-manifold 'setups' made for the Fordson, etc.

From this information, more and more Fordsons are now being displayed in shows, parades and exhibits which we feel now places the Fordson in its proper place in agricultural farm equipment history. No longer is the 'grand-daddy' of all modern tractors treated as a 'stepchild.'
