We went to the Canandaigua, NY Steam Show. The feature of the meet is the Ford/Fordson tractors. I've never seen so many Fordsons in one place. This show attracts thousands of people every year. Anyone that lives in this area, it is well worth going to today, as this is the last day of the show. This is the first set of pictures, with more to come.

Dan, thank You for posting the pics. I wanted to go to this show with the T doodlebug, but there are just so many I can get to without letting other work fall behind.

Post more if you have them.

Here is the first Fordson engine built by Hercules Motors in Canton Ohio. They built about 65,000 before the contract was ended. My Grandfather is on the right.

That gold select-o-speed was a dealer demonstrator. Once sold, the dealer would have re-painted it and been covered on the expense by Ford. Carl Davis (Eau Claire Michigan) had a 971 demonstrator that needed restored. He bought it off a guy as the transmission was bad. Carl was one of about 5 guys in the midwest that could repair one. He fixed the transmission and was hoping to restore the tractor during retirement. He told me once he checked the S/N after finding gold paint under the red and it was in fact one of the known demonstrators. Carl was a model T guy as well.

Dan, what was the Fordson with the side boom used for? Dave

David, I'm not sure what it was used for. With the industrial wheels it was probably used for some type of commercial loading.

Thanks Dan. It is certainly is unusual. Dave

Thanks for the Fordson feature of the NY antique tractor show Dan. I was on this Forum several months ago asking for a Fordson mentor as I'm now restoring my second Model F - a 1922 model. I was directed to another site and entered a rather long post only to receive no interest. Oh well....

George, Your welcome. I must have missed your post because I would have responded to it. I have four Fordsons myself
