Ford & Fordson Tractor Collection: Fordson Dexta is one of the latest additions to the ever-growing Kelsey Publishing bookazine range.
This new bookazine from Kelsey Publishing – the first in the Ford & Fordson Tractor Collection series – spotlights the wonderful and influential Fordson Dexta. This little machine is one of the most desirable, affordable and popular vintage tractors from the late 1950s and early ‘60s. The Dexta’s appealing combination of straightforward design, reliable engineering and classic, visual appeal, mean that it’s become a firm favourite with enthusiasts around the world.
This tractor really does have the potential to be all things to all owners. It makes an ideal first tractor for anyone new to the hobby; a machine that’s easy to live with, straightforward to maintain or restore and a doddle to drive. But it remains practical, too. If you need some characterful muscle for ploughing your smallholding, or topping the paddock, then a Dexta will cope with that sort of work in its sleep.
The compact size and relatively low weight make this Fordson easy to store and trailer around. So, owning a smart original – or completely restored example – that’s reserved for the show ring, the occasional road run or some friendly competition ploughing, is another ownership option. What’s more, the Dexta benefits from a superb support network, with established parts supply companies and restoration specialists out there just waiting to meet all your Dexta-related needs.
This bookazine, put together by Ford & Fordson Tractors magazine editor, Chris Graham, celebrates all aspects of the wonderful Dexta, and its 100, all-colour, perfect-bound pages are packed with information about buying, owning, running and restoring these iconic machines. It truly is a must-read publication for any Fordson Dexta enthusiast and, priced at just £8.99, would make an ideal Christmas present. Alternatively, you can subscribe to the Ford & Fordson Tractor Collection series, so that each successive edition is delivered to your door as it’s published.
