Late 50's Ford Plant Tour Brochure
This is a very rare (I've never seen it, nor knew it existed) brochure that was only given to special Ford tractor dealers and distributors, when they were given VIP tours through the Ford tractor plant. It was published in the late 50's ('58 or '59). It was donated by John Gustafson (aka Gaspump), who worked for Ford during that period and was at the plant when these tours were given. John told me when he emailed me the scanned pages, "The booklet is from the later 50's and I worked for Ford Tractor in '59 and we only could take selected Dealers and Distributors thru at that time so the tour booklets were had by only a few!"
Thank you, John. This is a very interesting look at the plant layout and will show the path the Hundred Series tractors were sent along as they were assembled, painted, tested and shipped out on rail cars.
