Between 1981 and 1991 the Ford Motor Company produced one of its most successful tractor ranges ever, the Series 10. Two dvds have now been produced showing this series.
In this dvd, Part One which looks at the era from 1981 to 1984, Stephen Richmond first sets the scene by looking at Ford tractor developments up to 1981 when the Series 10 was launched. The rest of the programme tells the story of the first Series 10 models as well as the later introduction of the flagship 8210 and other improvements in the early 1980s.
The dvd features both recently filmed footage and specially selected archive films produced by Ford themselves. The archive films show factory shots of Series 10 development machines. You will also see forage harvesting with the 7610 as well as a 7710 using a Ransomes push-pull plough.
Archive footage showing the launch of the Series 10 compact tractors is included as well as the restoration of an early Ford 6610 tractor from a rusty condition to as good as new.
