The Ford Motor Company was founded by Henry Ford and his eleven partners in Detroit (USA) in 1903. Since the partners did not support the tractors production plan, Ford founded a joint-stock company for the production of tractors in Deaborn in 1915 with the name Henry ford and son Inc. The model Fordson F-Standard first came on the market in 1917. It was soon exported to the United Kingdom and then the rest of Europe. The exhibit was used in the shooting of the film Dark Blue World.
