Here's a close up of the badge, it does indeed say Ferguson:

I think you may have found a 1956 Fergusson FE35 nicknamed 'Goldbelly' or 'Goldfish' made for the name change from Fergusson to Massey-Fergusson [Image: happy0159.gif]

Weren't there local assemblies all over the world? As CKD at least.
I'd be surprised if it was shipped from UK readily built (import duties, cost, like to have their own parts).

Tractors usually came just partly knocked down - maybe with just the wheels removed to make then more compact - with maybe only the battery supplied locally. Being a Commonwealth product for agricultural use I would be surprised if there was much duty. In NZ some of the accessopries were made locally under license. My TEA has locally made tractor jacks but they are only a simple to make part.

@nzcarnerd:
Excuse a non Commonwealth person, but what has the Commonwealth to do with it. I thought there were competitions between those countries as well (apart from the Commonwealth game...).
I know Ford cars had local assembly in Australia (for CKD?), and so did also British Leyland and GM (Holden still runs?).
I thought the CKD production had to do with import duties caused to boost local production, and I didn't know there were any exemptions for farming products.

If there wasn't much duty on products, why were there local assemblies in various places around the world at all. Shipping costs? Lack of resources at their main assembly plants?

In general CKD was often a means of reducing import duties by being able to claim a proportion of total car/vehicle value was local assembly. It could also allow flexibility for local adaptations for local conditions (eg bigger engines in many UK origin cars than offered from UK for Aus and ZA - 6-cylinder Cortinas, Marinas, BMC Farinas etc). The thing I find fascinating about CKD in eg Aus is how the tax regime (whatever it was) created strange alliances - eg Peugeot and Renault assembly in the same factory by collaboration, instead of the normal rivalry.

The Commonwealth agreements were an extra layer of reduced or in some cases nil import duty between members (which is why, for instance, Canada was the source of many US models for UK, Aus, NZ, ZA, HK etc). Commonwealth plus CKD in combination could therefore be much cheaper than external fully assembled imports.
