Conversions of Ford tractors have held a fascination for enthusiasts for many years. This programme, the first of two parts, delves right into the story of the conversions, looking at those built from 1917 to 1964 in chronological order along with each Ford tractor model that they were based on. From the Model F to the New Performance range, we get to see how the various manufacturers such as Chaseside, Muir-Hill, Roadless, County and Doe developed their products along with the Ford machine itself. This results in a unique look at these various crawler and four wheel drive tractors as well as just some of the various industrial machines. Archive and contemporary film of working examples draws together the story and brings the whole subject into close focus like never before!
This programme features all the action from both the Northern and Southern Working Weekends held by the Blue Force Club in 2013. With Fordson, Ford and various conversions including Matbro, Northrop, Doe, Muir-Hill, Roadless and County, these were fantastic events that saw around 200 tractors put through their paces on ploughs and cultivation equipment in Lincolnshire and Wiltshire. With plenty of black smoke and lots of noise this is two hours of pure Ford Tractor Power!
