Long also manufacturers the FarmTrac line. It is basically old Ford 3610/4610/4510 style tractors manufactured in Mexico. Somehow they got the manufacturing rights from Ford when Ford Motor Co. sold out to New Holland. However, I think Fiat has an interest in New Holland also so it would make even more sense if Fiat is involved in Long.

The FarmTrac 60 is a Ford 3910 and is manufactured in India. Got one. A great tractor but the metallergy on some parts is a bit suspect.

There are a few of them around here, some of the local townships bought them to mow ditches, a few on farms. They work reasonably well as low-hour utility tractors but anybody that starts putting a lot of hours on them soon wants rid of them.
