Hi
there is one north of me in Manitoba Canada :) Not sure if it belongs to Roger Haines that used to run the Roadless spares business in England years ago. or Graham Caitlin who moved here from Linconshire a few years ago. I know it's one of them that has it. saw it at a local show when it was a special ford year :) .

A Fordson is for life not just for Christmas !.

Hi all, I know of a roadless dexta, on a farm quite near to me. They still use a normal dexta and major for all their farming work! Their roadless dexta is locked in a barn most of the time, I had the privelege of driving it round the yard briefly a few months ago. Its totally original, never been worked on other than servicing, its only done just over 2000 hours!
Next time i am up there, I promise to take a picture of it :D
Oh yay, look, another seized bolt! Lets get a hammer.....and some kano.....and some cider!
