Doe Triple D
The most unorthodox Fordson Major conversion of all time, this Doe Triple D created a powerful four-wheel drive tractor at a time when no other high powered tractors were commercially available here. Later Ford tractors were converted into Triple Ds, but the Fordson Major was the first to receive this bizarre, yet somehow blindingly obvious, conversion. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention.
