J J Thomas 95-100

A lovely turned out tractor, as so many are, no doubt this has cost her owner a few thousand £'s.
Seen at the Kelsall show in Cheshire.

Previous title: Roadless Ninety Five-100

Andrew this is not a Roadless, it is a much more rare tractor. It is a "J J Thomas 95-100" built around a Ford 6600 back end and a Ford 2700 series industrial engine.

Thank you Paul, I had a feeling I'd be wrong on this one.
Maybe the Ed can correct the title please.

Looks like the Mark 3 version with the Dutch Clepa cab.

Matthias I think you are rite about the cab I just could not remember who made it when I posted the other comment the first Thomas tractors were built using second hand Ford 5000 select o speed back ends fitted with a new gearbox/crownwheel & pinion and new Ford 2700 6 cyl engine also Roadless supplied the engine mounting kit

Hi Paul, I have the information from Stuart Gibbard's book about Roadless tractors. It's very good and hold's a lot of infos about Ford and other conversions.

John (JJT) built these tractors from his premises at Ironstone Works near Wroxton St Mary, Banbury, Oxfordshire. I dealt with John in the 70's and the last I heard about him was that he was living in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. He moved to Banbury from South Wales.

Yes its definitely a 95/100. Originally when I worked for them at Bloxham just outside of Banbury in the early 70s they were a Ford 5000 with a lorry 6 cyl engine convertion, mainly for export. I"m now 58 and this site as bought some memories back!
