The Ferguson Tractor

 

The tractor above is a 1951 Ferguson built in Detroit, Michigan. My wife’s parents purchased it new in 1951 or 1952. It was made several years before Ferguson sold his Detroit plant to Massey Harris. I restored it the year after I retired from my job. I replaced the tires, radiator, electrical wiring. and manifold. The four cylinder Continental engine purrs like a happy kitten. I still use the tractor to blade the drive way and pull stumps. It is as handy as a pocket in a shirt. I attached a Merry Christmas from the Sundown Trail Blog sign board, and drove the tractor in the local Christmas parade this year.
