As I recall, that was not a Henry ford product. Just someone trying to capitalize off his name. Lawsuits followed. But the company folded before they concluded. The reason Henry"s tractors were called Fordsons was because someone beat him to the name "Ford" and he couldn"t use it for tractors.

Hello Joe , You are ABSOLUTELY WRONG about the use of FORDSON for the tractors . FORDSON was for HENRY FORD and SON . While Henry Ford still had share holders in his company in the early days of FOMOCO they did what to have any thing to do with Tractors , so Henry started another company to build tractors HENRY FORD and SON and built the FORDSON TRACTORS . Better read the story of Henry Ford again you missed that part . Thanks Tony

Wrong...yes but absolutely wrong might be a little strong. There actually was a company formed in Nebraska called Ford Tractor circa 1915 with the intention of gaining Henry Ford's permission to use his name. Ford did not approve and they folded a short while later. This was right around the same time Ford created Fordson due to FOMOCO's lack of interest in tractors. This info from Pripps and Moreland's Ford Tractors: N-Series, Fordson, Ford and Ferguson, 1914-1954.
