Oops! Here’s the information on last month’s cover
photo. Richard Cummings, 2287 W. Auburn Rd., Rochester Hills, MI
48309, bought the one-of-a-kind tractor from the Henry Ford Museum
in 1982. The museum’s accession sheet describes it as a Fordson
tractor, V8 engine, painted gray and marked ‘Ford’ on the
radiator. There are two small rubber tired front wheels placed
close together. There are fenders over rear wheels which have
rubber tires with cleats. A metal tool box is on the inside beside
the left rear wheel. A perforated gray metal seat is on an iron
bar.

They remark, ‘This is the only one of its kind, an
experimental tractor assembled from standard Ford truck and
passenger car parts. It was used for many years on the Ford
farm.’ The museum lists 1937 as the year of assembly.
