Up for auction is a Rare One of a Kind 1960 Ford Tractor Prototype Die Cast with it’s Original Shipping Box AND 28 Pages of Schematics plus Spec Sheets and 3 Page Ford Intra-Company Communications Letter from Ford’s Agricultural Research Coordinator in Ford Product Planning and Programming Office!! The Die Cast Metal Tractor measures 11″ long and 8″ tall. The shipping box is from Ford Tractor and Implement Division and addressed to Ed Murphy at Ford’s Sales Product Division in Birmingham Michigan. The 28 pages of schematics show the different potential agricultural applications that the “Hi-Clearance Material Handling” Tractor could be used for.
This is not a toy and it is not a dealer promo. It is a scale model that Ford used to develop the future tractor line. The copy that comes with the tractor is from C. B. Richey, Chief Research Engineer in the Research Engineering Dept and it is to G. K. McCutcheon, Ford Agricultural Research Coordinator and cc’d to W. J. VanPloeg.
What a great piece of antique Ford Tractor history and would be the envy of all of your collector friends when they see it showcased in your collection!
