British Tractors 1945-1965

By Stuart Gibbard

From Allis-Chalmers to Vickers, Stuart Gibbard has prepared an A-Z of the tractors made in Britain during the two decades of insatiable demand and great technical development 1945-65. He deals not only with the products of British manufacturers such as Ferguson, David Brown and Nuffield, but also with the American makers which established plants in Britain to overcome post-war import restrictions. Among the famous names here are International Harvester, Massey-Harris and Minneapolis-Moline. A unique feature of this book is that the 400 images are all from manufacturers' sales brochures and publicity material. These give the flavour of the times and highlight the features that the manufacturers were most keen to promote.
