From the manufacturer:

Harry Ferguson was born in Ireland in 1884.  He was fond of automobiles and airplanes, and became the first Irishman to fly in 1909.  He later founded a company selling cars and tractors.  In 1916 he invented the Ferguson System, a 3-point linkage designed to attach plows to tractors that is the norm nowadays.  He patented an improved version in 1936.  He then started building tractors, first on his own, then from 1939 in partnership with Henry Ford. 

Over 300,000 Ford-Ferguns were sold through 1947.  The TE-20, nicknamed Little Gray Fergie, was launched in 1946 and built in Coventry by the Standard Motor Co. (which had owned Triumph since 1945).  More than 500,000 units, both gas and diesel, were built through 1956.  

Coventry-built TE-20s were imported into France from 1946, and were successful enough to justify a joint venture between Standard and Hotchkiss in 1953.  TE-20s would be assembled in the Saint-Denis factory, mostly from imported British parts.  The share of French-built parts increased until reaching 100% in 1957, when the TE-20 became the FF-30.

The FF-30 was a TE-20 with minor differences (seat shape, battery location, red-painted engine and chasiss) and was produced until 1958.  Some 50,000 tractors were built in Saint-Denis.

Includes 128 pieces. Will be 11cm long and 7cm wide when assembled.
