Nuffield Tractor Story - Volume Two : Nuffield and Leyland 1963-1982In Volume One of the Nuffield Tractor Story, Tony Clare took the account up to 1967, the era of the powerful 10/60 model. In Volume 2 he continues with the development of the Mini tractor. Tony shows the final development of the Nuffield mid-range tractors, the 4/65 and the 3/45, and their further evolution into the first of the re-badged Leyland Tractors, the 384 and the 344 models. With detailed research and many photographs the author goes on to cover the roller-coaster ride that awaited this key part of the British tractor industry. He deals with the later difficulties of the British Motor Corporation and the government-initiated merger with Leyland Vehicles. Further development of the tractor range was to continue with the introduction of the ‘98’ series engines, safety cabs, the ‘Synchro’ gearbox and the ‘Harvest Gold’ range. Finally, British Leyland decided to dispose of the tractor business in 1982. 160 pages, approx. 228 photos. hardback.
