Outtakes from Issue #14 are here!
Issue #14 was mailed the first week of April and features the third and final part of Harry Ferguson’s Black Tractor. Part 3 focuses on Ferguson’s partnership with Henry Ford and the development of the Ford Ferguson N Series tractor. It concludes with photos from the Ferguson family photo album. Several rare photos are included in the final chapter.
This issue also features an in-depth look at the Massey Ferguson 4000 Series tractor. This article also includes several previously unpublished images from the engineers who designed and built these great tractors. Click here to view the complete set of concept drawings plus images of several prototypes that were never put into production.
We also visit a 3rd generation New York dairy farm that has always used Massey tractors and equipment. This issue concludes with a tour of the Heritage Hill Farm Museum. Meet Ontario residents, Jim and Joyce Rody and see how they have recreated the farming memories of their childhood.
Of course, there is a great group of letters from subscribers who share their interests and stories with the rest of the Legacy Quarterly readers.
In the July issue, we are going to feature a section on working tractors. Send us photos and a short story about how you keep your Massey or Ferguson tractor busy. See the ad here on the homepage for information on how to have your tractor and equipment included!

Outtakes from Issue #13 are here!
Issue #13 was mailed the first week of January, 2013. This issue features part II of our three-part series on Harry Ferguson and the Black Tractor by Steve Watts. The other features included look at the Massey-Harris Test Track by Gordon Barnett plus Bill Parrish examines the combine restoration of Len Holo. Rich Onesti shows off his Massey-Harris 333 LP tractor and tells the interesting story of how he found it.
The RFD letters to the editor starts with the re-discovery of the Massey Ferguson “Black Combine” that was featured in Issue #3 as well as 6 pages of letters from readers that you won’t want to miss.
Check out this short video of Bob Boullion’s Massey Ferguson 4840 that is featured as the centerfold of this issue. The day I shot the pictures, Bob was making this great old tractor earn its keep. After the photo shoot was finished it was such a nice day that Sue made a quick video. This tractor has a great sound!
There are still a few 2013 Legacy Quarterly wall calendars left. The desktop calendars are all gone. If you didn’t get around to ordering one, don’t be disappointed. When these are gone, there won’t be any until next year!
We hope that you enjoy Issue #13 as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
