This is Dad’s tractor. It’s a 1948 Ferguson TE20 (that stands for Tractor England, 20 horsepower).

They were manufactured in Covington, England from 1946 to 1956. Dad’s tractor is one of 15,000 shipped to the US and Canada at the beginning of 1948.  The first US made TO20s (Tractor Overseas) rolled off the assembly line later that year.
 

 

He’s really excited about restoring it this summer. They’re known in England as the Little Grey Fergie. When Dad’s done, it will look like this:
