It seems that there are more Ford owners than Jake owners?
I recently became the owner of a Jacobsen GT16 and so far, all the used parts I've found have been blue. I see and hear about far more Ford models than Jake models, does anyone have any production numbers on various models and under what badge they were sold?

I don't know what the production numbers are but I am pretty sure there were more Jacobsen built Fords sold then Jacobsen garden tractors.

I have no idea where those numbers could be found.

I would think more Jakes were built, as the Chief's were around long before they started making them for Ford.

Fords likely outsold Jakes just because of name recognition.

Once Jacobsen started building them for Ford, the Fords probably outsold the Jakes. But I think Jacobsen was around for some time before they hooked up with Ford.
