The Ford 5000 tractor was a general purpose unit built at the Ford Tractor plant at Highland Park, Michigan, USA from 1965 to 1976. Many of these units were sold in South Africa.
Sandstone does not undertake many restorations outside of its own collection but recently a Ford 5000 arrived at Sandstone from a local tractor enthusiast and collector for a restoration. The unit was in very poor condition and required a lot of work from our staff in the Sandstone Modern Workshop. Click here to view the full story and photo gallery.
