100th Anniversary of the Fordson Tractor

Fair Lane, Home of Clara & Henry Ford

Published on May 5, 2017

In 1917, Henry Ford and his son Edsel designed and launched the Model F tractor. Hailed as the “Model T of the Soil,” the Fordson Model F was the first lightweight, affordable tractor the world had seen. The labor and food shortage of World War I came to an end because of the Fordson tractor. It became the foundation on which American and European agriculture flourished in a changing world. To celebrate its 100th Anniversary, we are opening a new exhibit in the historic Garage at Henry’s Fair Lane estate. Admission is free! Check out www.henryfordestate.org for more information!
