  • Ford Wrench
  • A guy from the Red Square Wheel Horse forum sent me this. It was in with a bunch of tools, rusty and dirty, etc. He cleaned it up and since he knew I had some Ford tractors, he sent it to me.

  • The September 1952 Ford Tractor dealer parts book shows these tools and kits available for Ford N tractors:

  • Does it have a square tang on the end of the handle?

  • Yes, it has a square tang on the end, and the wrench is about 9 1/2 inches long.

  • That's an adjustable wrench that was found in owner tool kits for Ford cars. The square tang is used to remove the differential drain plug. The difference between it and the one that was found in N tractor kits is that the tractor version does not have the square tang on the end of the handle.

  • I can't tell you positively, but Ford often marked their tools used in production. They could have been used in an upholstery department. The scissors may have been stolen or thrown away. Ford even had eating utensils in their employee cafeterias marked "Ford".
    Looking at my son's 1942 Ford GPW (Jeep) all of the bolts had a script F on the head.

  • Thank you, Sir, for your input. During WW II, there was a family member that built army vehicles at Ford plant, so maybe.....

  • Please understand, I was not being accusatory. The volume of tools etc. was such that stuff easily got misplaced or accidently thrown away. Enjoy your treasure.
