Beach Tractor by BusterBrownBB Beach Tractor by BusterBrownBB
Used to take a boat to the waterline and pick it up again, this old tractor looks cool in it's new blue paint.

Either A Fordson EA1 New Major 1953-1957 Or Power Major 1957-1959... :sherlock:

You Would Think A Tractor Is A Tractor, But I Was Surprised At The Sheer Number Of Factory Options Available Even Back Then!!!! :eyepopping:

Yes - my father worked for Ford Tractor division in the late 50's - I think he was head of the design team. We moved down from the farm in Aberdeen to Southend so that he could take that job.
Lots of complicated equations about have the gear ratios being right to drive the Power Take Off without having to drive at 50mph across the fields.

Yes - he was lent to the foreign office to go out to Iran to set up an Agricultural College in 61 and ford donated half a Fordson Major - litterally cut in half so that you could see all the parts - very impressive - at least to an 11 year old boy!

I defer to your expertise, to me a tractor is a tractor is a tractor. :)
From a distance, it looked like a toy, all painted up like this - but I liked it.

Looks a bit like an old machine... it's more nice that the one we see on our shores at least!!

Yes, I think it's an old 1950's machine, recently painted though.
