1940 in Dagenham

Fordson Model 'N' rowcrop agricultural tractor, three wheeled on pneumatic tyres, by the Ford Motor Company, Dagenham, Essex, 1940, Engine: Serial No. 861915, 4-cylinder side valve petrol/tractor vaporising oil. Fitted with mechanical implement lift by ........., operated by left hand rear axle; and optional belt pulley.

Three-wheeled agricultural tractor on pneumatic tyres, made by the Ford Motor Company, Dagenham, Essex. The Fordson Model N was a development of Ford?s earlier Model F tractor. It was manufactured in Cork, Republic of Ireland, between 1929 and 1932, and then in Dagenham until 1945. This period saw Ford's share of the American tractor market decline to as little as 5%, due to the cost of importing the machines from across the Atlantic and the development of technically more advanced tractors by their American competitors. This three-wheeled version was reasonably successful on the British market, but very few sold in the United States.
