Fordson was a brand name of tractors and trucks manufactured by Henry Ford & Son Inc, and later by Ford Motor Company from 1917 to 1964 in the US and after that in the UK. The tractors were first built in Detroit since 1920. Ford decided to reduce the price of the Fordson after sales had suffered from the depression of 1920-1921 and the competition of for example John Deere. Ford lowered the price from $625 to $395, which caused a real price war in the tractor industry, known as the ‘tractor wars’.
