The Fordson E27N Major was a minor upgrade of the Fordson N, which itself was very similar to the original Fordson F. Post-war shortages delayed the development of an entirely new tractor. It was known simply as the the Fordson Major until 1953, when the E1A "New Major" entered production. After that, it became common to use the E27N Major designation.
