models (front axle driven by dual side cardan shafts, driven
off the rear halfaxles) they were 99% equal to Ford.
In the early years, County also assembled some bigger
standard tractors for Ford motor co, i think 8000 models.
Those were built under Ford name, the equal wheeled tractors
were sold under County name.

is sold under the Benz name, but with structural
modifications, they need homologation and can no longer be
sold under the name of the manufacturer but will be sold
under name, and responsibility of the modifier.

motors in the early years. But Countys history goes far
back. County started with adding a third axle to Ford
trucks, starting to sell these six wheel trucks in 1929.
They also built a two man tank in 1943. County started
building full track crawler tractors in 1948 based on
Fordson E27N Major, and the first wheel tractor was out in
the marked round 1955, this tractor was based on the crawler
version, with steering by brakes, like the crawler
