By producing his first tractor in 1917 the automobile builder Henry Ford had made his own dream from childhood come true. With the Fordson-Tractor (derived from the producer's name "Henry Ford & Son") he had created a vehicle that constributed greatly to facilitating hard field work. The constructional features of the motor closely resembled those of the T model. The carburettor was convertible which permitted to start with gasoline and drive with petroleum. About 250,000 units of this type were built in Germany, England and America. More than 200,000 license models of the Fordson-Tractor were built in Russia up to 1940.
