Built in Dagenham, England
The Ford 5000 Diesel was the British-built Fordson Super Major with a different paint scheme. The 5000 Diesel was imported into the United States to provide a large diesel tractor to Ford dealers. The tractor had no relation, other than name, to the later Ford 5000 that followed it. The 5000 Diesel featured a blue and cream paint scheme, and new decals, although it retained the Super Major hood badge.
