Just a side note: Ford was the only major manufacturer of farm tractors during the war. They produced 102,183 units for farm and military use. This was due to Ford having been granted the steel allowance to do so while other farm equipment manufacturers were not granted this broad allowance. Harry Ferguson was the person responsible for this as he lobbied Congress and the President(FDR) himself for the allowance and he emphasized Ford's mass production capability as well as the farmer's importance to the war effort to get it done. He was motivated by the need to keep his own company in business, but he did everyone a great service with his gift for salesmanship.
