Fordson Major E1A celebrates milestone at Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show.

THE Fordson Major E1A, produced from 1952 – 1958, will be celebrating its 70th anniversary at the Newark Vintage Tractor & Heritage Show this November.
Fordson fan Malcolm Booth plans to take six or seven Majors from the E1A range to the show, including a Fordson Major Mark II 1957-58, two Power Majors from 1959, three blue/orange Super Majors from 1962/63 and a 1964 blue grey Super Major.
“There is a picture of me sitting on a Fordson Major when I was about two,” says Malcolm. “Dad always had a smallholding and I’ve been collecting and working on them since the late 1970s. I had my first one in 1983 – a 1957 Mark II.
“My own son Thomas started restoring his first tractor at seven years old,” he adds. “It had come in for scrap. He spent all his holidays, nights and weekends scraping and cleaning it. I didn’t have the heart to scrap it and he restored it over the next seven years.”
Malcolm lives in Nettleham, Lincolnshire and acquires vintage tractors as a hobby.
He expects to take six to 10 Fordson tractors to this year’s show - full details of which can be found on our events page here
