  • FORD TRACTOR SIGHTING ON ADAM 12
  • Last evening I was watching an old ADAM-12 rerun and spotted a FORD TRACTOR in an episode. If you blink you'll miss it, and I couldn't tell if it was 8N or a later model. Definite Vermillion (Red) and Medium Grey but had a FEL and a (presumed) Dearborn/Danuser PHD on the rear, and 16" front wheels. It is Log 115, "Gang War", and stars Trini Lopez as a Catholic priest. He tries to stop an LA gang of Latinos/Mexicans from their gang war but somebody ends up dead.

  • A few weeks ago I watched the 1967 movie Heat of the Night set in Sparta MS. One scene had a TO-30 crossing a downtown intersection pulling a cotton wagon, then a much longer scene took place at the IH dealership with a couple of new (1967) FarmAll's and a shop with work going on with some tractors. A later scene showed a row of used tractors on the lot and included a Minneapolis Moline , but no Fords. Still a lot of fun to watch.

  • HiYa Steve, ol' buddy! Hope you are doing well. As mentioned below, "Green Acres" was sponsored by FoMoCo and had numerous episodes featuring FORD TRACTORS. Like This:

  • MORE FORDS & FERGUSONS IN THE MOVIES & TV
  • We had a list going a few years ago of Ford & Ferguson Tractors in TV and movies -here is one LINK. Also, the TV show "Green Acres" was sponsored by FoMoCo and often had Ford vehicles. Mr. Kimble drove an early Bronco and Oliver was always in a Ford sedan. There were a few episodes with a Ford 6000 as well.

  • The Hoyt-Clagwell tractor on Green Acres was a Fordson and Oliver Douglas drove a Lincoln convertible. I will have to try and check out Mr Haneys truck to see if is a Model T or A Ford.

  • The other night I was watching Combat on you-tube.They ran across an old, neglected, abandoned N in a barn in France(AKA So Cal).At the time(1944) it would have been less than 5 years old.One of the GI's was a farmer who still plowed with horses and was saving all his pay to buy a tractor when he got home. He didn't make it.It was season 5, episode 10.

  • I saw what looked like a 9N or 2N on a three stooges short last night. The boys made.a home in a yard with a fence for walls, and a tractor run right through the middle of it with a 2 share plow on the back. It then chased them around. I didnít get the title.

  • It was called ďG.I. Wanna Go HomeĒ made in 1946. Curly was sick and this was one of his last appearances.
