Ford Tractor

The Ford brand was first used on tractors in 1939 with the introduction of the 9N, although the Fordson brand had already been in use for 20 years. Ford reentered the tractor market in 1939 with the Ford N-series tractors. The Ford N8, introduced in 1947, became the most popular tractor of all time in North America. Production of the N line of models ended in 1952. In 1953 this series was replaced by the Ford NAA tractors.

After 1964, all tractors made by the Ford companies worldwide carried the Ford brand. In 1986, Ford expanded its tractor business when it purchased the Sperry-New Holland skid-steer loader and hay baler, hay tools and implement company from Sperry Corporation and formed Ford-New Holland which bought out Versatile tractors in 1988. In 1991 Ford sold its tractor division to Fiat with the agreement that they must stop using the Ford name by 2000. In 1999, Fiat removed all Ford identification from their blue tractors and renamed them "New Holland" tractors.
