$750 f. o. b. Dearborn, Mich.
Henry Ford & Son at Dearborn,
Michigan, closed their factory some
time ago in order to make changes
which would allow them to increase
their production up to a point where
they could more nearly supply the de
mand for Fordson Tractors which has
been coming to them from all parts of
the world for the past year.
The plant up to the present time has
been ixm on a war basis proposition
and at no time was it able to turn out
the enormous quantity of machines de
manded, and in order to put in the most
up-to-date methods of manufacturing
and assembling, it was necessary to
stop production for a short time.
During the shut-down, modern ways
of transporting material, and quicker
and more efficient methods of assem
bling have been effected, and for the
past two weeks the factory has run at
a small capacity in order to test out
the different assembling rows and to
make sure everything is operating
smoothly and according to schedule.
It is now hoped that with the in
creased capacity and the present line
up at the Fordson factory at Dearborn
which has grown to a wonderful size in
one year’s time and where they have
manufactured during the last year
more than fifty thousand tractors, that
dealers throughout the country will be
more nearly able to supply the demand.
The new price of $750.00 that has
just been announced by Henry Ford &
Son is made possible by the re-arrsnge
ment at the factory which allows them
to get into a great deal larger produc
tion daily. That the Fordson Tractor
has proven a success, far beyond the
fondest expectations of even the build
ers, is shown by the fact that practic
ally 80 per cent of all the tractors sold
the past year to farmers are Fordson
Tractors. Its light weight and econom
ical operation no doubt has played no
small part in the wonderful popularity
the little Fordson enjoys. Shipments
of tractors have already begun from
the factory and very soon dealers in all
localities will again be able to fill or
The Fordson Tractor is sold by the
T. & T. Motor Company of Edgerton.
