Vintage day for Fordson

THE biggest-ever display of Fordson vintage tractors is being planned by New Holland and members of the National Vintage Tractor & Engine Club.

The event – Fordson 500 – will celebrate the contribution of the tractor to agriculture and emphasise the links between the marque and todays New Holland tractor models. The company hopes to attract enough Fordsons to the Newark Agricultural Showground on Jun 29/30 next year to win a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Fordson tractors built between 1917 and 1966 qualify for the event and New Holland says enthusiasts in the UK and overseas are already planning to be there. Details from the NVTEC Fordson 500 office at 2a Hawton Lane, Balderton, Newark, Notts NG24 3DL. &#42
