A lot of you have probably seen this but here is a Ford promotional film for the 1953 Jubilee. A reminder of when our country was strong and we still made great stuff here.
Merry Christmas
Bill

Very cool! Noticed the hy-trol knob on the hydro pump. Don"t think mine has that. Broken off maybe? Also noticed the brake locking lever.(Also don"t have!)and the lever for the "live PTO" attachment. Also don"t have. Was that standard on the Jubilee?? Broke off maybe?

A very interesting film. Thanks so very much! What I really noticed was the installation of a remote valve. Don't think I have ever seen one quite like the one shown in the film. Are there any exactly like that one around?

never saw one of that style on a NAA like the one running that cylinder.

wish I could find one too.



pretty funny at the 4:40 mark or so

Looks like even Ford agrees with all of us, when

we tell people to pass on the N's and go for a NAA or later to get live hydraulic power.

"annoying gear shifting manipulations" LOL

Another thing I noticed... near the very beginning the narrator said something like "a symbol of 50 years of Ford interest in applying mechanized power to the problems of farm work."

Ford didn't start selling tractor until 1917, so they had only been "applying mechanized power to the problems of farm work" for about 36 years when the film was made.

Yes, but their cars and trucks were being used on the farms since the beginning of the model T.

Great film, I have a Jube and I love it. I was born in 53 so I have an emotional attachment to the tractor. It is completely original ( 6 volt pos grd) and it is my favorite tractor. It reminds me of a time in America when a guy who built was just as proud of a guy who bought. Thanks for posting.

That is a great video!

Three things I noticed.

1-the announcer called it the "Golden Jubillee Model"

2-pulling the plow you can tell then were trying to work it hard s there was lots of wheel spin.

3-they sure seemed to drive fast... ;)

I have watched it a couple times before. Video like that is a good place to see the proper paint scheme for things like starter, generator carb and others.

My dad was parts/service manager for a Farmall dealership in the early 1950's. One of the old guys that knew him then said that some of the local tractor dealers would invite farmers to a free barbecue supper every fall (when the tobacco was sold and the farmers had cash) and show 16mm films similar to this one after the meal promoting the latest and greatest models in their respective lines.
Bet they sold a lot of equipment that way.
Looking at the film got me in the mood and I got my 641 out this afternoon(65 degrees today) and rode around my farm. When I was getting ready to get on the road to the house, a local fellow came by on an early 70's gleaner with a soybean head on it.If someone would have gotten a picture of the 641 and the Gleaner, you would have sworn it was the early 70's. Long time ago...
