I know I haven't seen anything. Maybe because Jacobsen made them for Ford?

I will have to look around. I saw one on Amazon that was on Garden Tractors in general. but not specific to Ford.

That would be cool as I love to read about old US history of manufacturing.

< if this is the case you need to read ' The Future of the Automobile" MIT press and "The Machine that Changed the world" also from MIT press. Setting is mid 80's but the manufacturing history and lessons are remarkable...from all aspects...the first book is heavy on math and statistics, so if you're not 'technically' inclined, just read the latter...

Several years ago, the Bible in Massey Harris collecting was a pocket book called the Massey Data Book. Mine is very worn and they're out of print now, but they sold a bunch of them.

May be a worthy endeavor for someone to tackle in their free time.
