It was the Fergusson tractor that used Triumph components. (Fergusson also
built a 4 wheel drive F1 car)

Fordson (UK subsidiary of Ford I think) made a whole range of tractors
including various models of the 'Major' through the years.

A google search on 'Fordson' produced about 2,100 results, including
preservation societies and clubs.

Both Fergusson and Fordson tractors were very popular in NZ. Large numbers
of 'retired' ones are still parked in sheds and under trees. There are also
quite a few very old models still working order in beach holiday areas for
launching boats.
