Fordcrazy001 - collection of Fordson, Ford, New Holland & Versatile - new photos

Recommended Posts

Hello I am Wil and am a big time fan of the Ford tractors and anything that had to do with the Ford concern. My collection expands quite a bit(. From the old Fordsons to the Ford and later on New Holland and also the by Ford acquired articulated manufacturer Versatile. I collect all scales.. from 1:12 up to 1:87.

i really wouldnt know how to get the whole collection in a few shots as i am not even able to display all items (lost count..ha ha!..)

but if you wish to have a rough view of it, you can check my collection website

www.fordcrazy001.com , in the "About" section you will find a couple of pictures of my collection as it is displayed. In the "collection" section each model is photographed and categorized

i would love to hear about what you think about it and naturally hear from other Ford enthusiasts and farm toy collectors...

on page 2 i have started with sharing photographs of my collection on a  "type" bases (Ford 40-series, 60-series, New Holland TM series, Fordson F etc.etc.etc.. when i have completed that task(it will take weeks), i will update the type-pictures regularly when new models have arrived.

thanks all. Great to see you too on here Denis, Murray and Udimore(i am pretty certain i bought a blue one from you a while ago on ebay.. ;) ).

to answer a few questions..

my favourite model is.. oh heck..make that ARE ;)

1. Ford 5000 Ernest Doe 1:16 UH

2. Ford Jubilee 1:12 Product Miniature

3. Fordson major 1:16 Chad Valley

4. Fordson major 1:20 Empire Made

It is hard to choose from so many great models but i have a preference for the larger scale detailed tractors.

What a wonderful site, looks like you have spent a lot of time - not only on the collection but putting the site together. Do you only collect originals, no conversions? I love the TJ series in 1/32. I'd love one of them (not triples) but they always seem a but steep for what you get really.  :-\

Welcome to FTF by the way.  :)

thanks Deere-est (great name btw.).

yeah, a lot of time was spent on that site. i am lucky enough to have a girlfriend who is good at webdesign which of course helped  ;)

The TJ-series are pretty good. but also expensive.. and getting more expensive by the day it seems. I got one in 1:!6 scale.. which is awesome.. (AND HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!)

I collect originals yes. i dont collect conversions as there would be no end to it anymore.. ;)

Also small series of atleast 250 are in my interest..

liking every minute on here with fellow collectors who share this great hobby of collecting farm models :D

thanks Barry, sorry to have introduced a couple unknown Ford's to you.. I hate it when that happens to me and i have even more on my wishlist :-\

They are all in great condition. How do you display them all , and are they mainly boxed items.

I have about 2 display cabinets. in one of them all the Fordsons are displayed, the other contains my New Holland combines. I also have some home made show cabinets that are way to full. Regretfully i am not able to show them all. The Versatile collection and all the trucks and banks etc. are currently in a closet as well as the huge 1:16 articulated tractors.

In the future i hope to refurbish a complete room for my collection so i can display all the models and memorabilia and brochures i have gathered. Luckily my girlfriend found it ok :D

and i do keep all the boxes. With rare models i try to keep them in the boxes, but mostly out of the boxes. about 85% of the models have boxes with them that i store separately cause it would take toooooooo much space.. ;)
