As already mentioned it had little to do with cars or trucks. It varied year to year but was usually late in the year when farmers had time to attend. The Tractor Division was dependent on parts from the Rouge and other plants so it also had to do with availability of components for all FMC plants. Accounting and marketing had a lot to say about those events too. As I have said before Ford Tractor was the misfit little sister of the car people, they mostly believed that Ford should not be in the tractor business. The car folks eventually won out over tractors primarily by squeezing their budget.
