Great Little Workhorse
Probably the most famous tractor ever in Britain was the Little Grey Fergie, the result of a collaboration after the war between Harry Ferguson and The Standard Motor Company in Coventry.
In 1945 the factory was standing idle having been producing aircraft engines during the war and a year later the first TE20 rolled off the production line at Banner Lane. The Ferguson Hitch made this such a versatile machine and brought mechanised farming to even the smallest farm. After producing 48000 such machines the TEA20 was introduced and driven down the steps of Claridges by Harry Ferguson himself. There was a whole generations then who learnt to drive on this little machine and who have a soft spot in their memory for the famous little classic.
