Part two of Tracks, Tyres & Skid Units takes the story of Ford tractor conversions forward from 1964 to 1994. As with part one, we take each Ford tractor model and look at what conversions were based on that particular model.
Four wheel drive conversions really steal the show in this programme as the new Ford 1000 Series 6X range arrives and numerous different conversions appear based on it and subsequent ranges, from companies such as County, Doe, Muir-Hill, Northrop and Roadless.
The culmination is the big County 1884 which marks the last days of the conversion specialists, but the story does not end there as the Moffett MFT was based on the Ford 40 Series from 1991 and the rubber tracked Caterpillar Challenger 35, 45 and 55 machines were based on the Ford 70 Series that first appeared in 1994.
A special feature also looks at some of the smaller conversions such as drainage machines, tricycle conversions and other uses to which Ford skid units were put.
