In 1953, Ford made every postwar farmer's dream come true with the ultimate tractor--an American original, straight from our nation's heartland--updated with all of the technical improvements of a new and optimistic era. Now, in cooperation with Ford Motor Company, Franklin Mint Precision Models captures the nostalgia with a 1:12 scale model of the 1953 Ford Jubilee Tractor.

Every detail of the original is carefully recreated, from the fully-detailed engine compartment, to the steering and road wheels that actually turn, to the operable brakes and clutch pedals. Crafted of more than 150 individual parts and carefully painted red and gray, the tractor even bears the medallion inscribed 'Golden Jubilee Model 1903-1953,' which Ford used that year in celebration of its own 50th anniversary.

The 1953 Ford Jubilee Tractor is available exclusively from The Franklin Mint for a retail price of $135. For customer information, phone 1-800-THE-MINT or visit the Franklin Mint Store near you.
