Here's your beautifully photographed one-stop source for everything you ever wanted to know about the immensely popular classic Ford tractors.

First manufactured in 1917, Ford tractors (initially sold under the Fordson name, a contraction of Henry Ford & Son) were, thanks to mass production, the first affordable and reliable machines that allowed small farmers to replace draft animals. Though manufacture was exclusive to Great Britain by the 1930s, Ford tractors returned stateside with a roar in 1939 with the 9N, which incorporated the hitch system of Irish engineer and inventor Harry Ferguson.

In this comprehensive addition to Motorbooks’ Complete Book Series, tractor historian Robert Pripps provides a detailed and complete account of Ford tractors, from the earliest Fordsons to the Ford-Fergusons, the Ford N Series, and the Ford "World" tractors manufactured into the 1970s. Amply illustrated, the book also offers extensive information on the numerous options and accessories, implements and variations that came out of Dearborn, Sherman Bros., and the great Funk Bros. hot rod conversions that could make each of these popular machines utterly unique. In between, the book traces year-to-year model changes within each series.

With content from Pripps’ best-selling The Big Book of Ford Tractors and The Illustrated Ford and Fordson Tractor Buyer’s Guide, The Complete Book of Ford Tractors is supplemented with new text, data-packed specification boxes, and a largely new selection of incredible color photography and period advertising.

The only book offering comprehensive coverage of the breadth of collectible Ford tractors, The Complete Book of Ford Tractors is a must-have volume for every tractor enthusiast's library. Also available from the Complete Books series: The COmplete Book of Classic John Deere Tractors and The Complete Book of Farmall Tractors.
