Cutaway of Fordson Tractor, 1926

Summary

The Ford Motor Company used cutaways to educate customers about internal combustion, power generation, and transmission. Antonio Stabile, a Ford distributor in Rosario, Argentina, instructed his service department manager, Bernardo Pagliani, to make this cutaway of a 1926 Fordson tractor to display in his showroom and at exhibitions. Model changes made the cutaway obsolete and Mr. Stabile shipped it to Ford in late 1931.
