The second version of the Corgi Fordson Major. This one has the headlights in the grille and has parallel wheel steering. The previous version had a rigid front axle. The rear lift arms are different too and the chimney comes through the bonnet rather than outside as on the earlier version.

This one takes the later plough without the top link. The Great Book of Corgi gets this model very wrong, it is referred to as the old 55 model with an added driver. It is actually a completely new model of a different tractor, a new model of Fordson Major, newly modelled and a new casting. It is a very good model and a nicely engineered toy. Go to the 1974 page and compare it to the Massey MF50B which is a lump. This is engineered art.

CONTROLLED STEERING AND LIFTING MECHANISM WITH AUTOMATIC COUPLING

This tractor was added into the Corgi range in 1964 and remained in production until 1971 which meant it was in the shops alongside its replacement - the Ford 5000 - for four years, and deleted only one year earlier that the Ford 5000. Development was not always sequential. There are no listed variations to this Corgi, other than red or orange wheels, and values are good.
