Product Description

Synopsis

In 1964 Ford replaced its separate British and American tractor lines with the new 6X range, a "worldwide" family of tractors designed for manufacture in Basildon, Antwerp and the USA. It marked the beginning of an exciting new period in the history of Ford tractors. The next 30 years saw a host of new models and features as the line expanded and evolved towards the machines of the late 1990s with their computer-age technology. It was also a time during which Ford's agricultural business grew into an organization of global proportions, taking over both the New Holland and Versatile equipment companies. In 1994, Fiat acquired Ford's agricultural machinery interests and merged them with Fiatagri to form a new company under the New Holland name. In the late 1990s, New Holland is the leading manufacturer in Europe and many of the World's markets. In this book, the companion to the first part, the author gives an account of all the main Ford and New Holland models as well as the company changes and the personalities involved. It provides a comprehensive resource on this period of tractor history.

Great Synopsis of a Complex Story 18 Jan. 2013
By UncleMike55 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read both parts of the fantastic engineering effort that brought about the design of the beloved Ford tractors. Though some may disagree, the Ford design was arguably among the most versatile there ever was, or ever will be for that matter. Stuart Gibbard had the unenviable task of sorting through what must have been literally hundreds of documents, interviews, photo's, and journals to piece together a story that could have taken an encylopedia to write. Condensed into a well written text strewn with many photographs and some good (though not complete) technical information, the Ford Tractor Story is well worth reading for any Ford tractor fan, or owner.
Nice book 29 Dec. 2014
