  • Ford Tractors in media
  • This may have been discussed before, but its something I've always wanted to post. My fascination with Ford tractors began at a very early age, so extensive that I looked for them everywhere I went, plus on television, magazines, books, and movies. The following is a listing of where I have noticed Ford Tractors on screen over the years starting with my earliest recollection. The Real McCoys, a Model 850 which was in many episodes. Green Acres...the venerable Fordson which was renamed "Hoyt-Claxton" in the show, plus the new Commander 6000 with a cab that was mistakingly delivered to Mr.Ziffel.It is interesting to note that in the opening sequence of the show,Mr Douglas drives up on a John Deere GP. I have always surmised that since FoMoCo furnished vehicles for the show, the Fordson replaced the JD. The detective show Cannon had an episode in which a late model 4000 can be seen grading a horse racetrack. A "Killer Bee" movie that begins with a man on a 640 trying to pull a stump with the Bees hanging out in a tree overhead. That didn't work out good for him. Walking Tall...Buford takes the family on a picnic driving a 640 PAINTED BLUE AND DECALED FORD 2000 !! A CRIME BUFORD!!...Of course the 8N in Son In Law. The A Cappella group Home Free has two videos with a 971D SOS, WooHoo ! The book "Iron Fist" the story of Carl Kiekhaffer, at the end of the last chapter, has a pic of Carl Bush Hogging with a a 801D. These are the ones that stick in my mind the most. How about you guys? I'm sure I've forgotten others. FWIW. SoS.

  • A recent cable show titled "Amish Mafia" frequently had a nice looking 9N in the background while the Amish guys were collaborating on things.

  • Film Flam Man had a chase scene where a wagonload of watermelons pulled by an 8N was hit.

  • 'The Flim Flam Man', that was on Saturday evening on TCM, I saw the 8N in the middle of the road, had stay bars on the back.
    there was a movie called 'The Young Widow' showing a closeup of Jane Russell driving either a 9N or 2N, the year of the movie was 1946 and all you could see really was a close up of her driving it so couldn't tell the year of it, I knew by looking at the battery cover.
