Alastair Sloane writes: I grew up on a farm where my dad used an ex-army Bren gun carrier as a tractor. It was just after World War II and there wasn’t enough money around for a new Massey Ferguson or Fordson Major. They came later. The Bren carrier humped cream cans a few hundred meters from the cowshed to the ‘cream stand’, where the local dairy company truck would pick them up. It towed old railway lines joined together by heavy-gauge chains to crush scrub. It towed discs and harrows to prepare ground for pasture. I still recall the start-up rumble of the Bren carrier’s flathead V8. This video below deals with the development of Ford’s early line of V8 engines. The photo above shows Ford of Canada president Wallace R. Campbell stamping the first V8 produced in Windsor, Ontario. Campbell was Ford Canada president from 1929 to 1946.
