Leyland Tractors

Details

The story of the Leyland Tractor begins with the orange Nuffield tractor of 1948, which was to influence the development of Leyland tractors in many key ways. The book then focuses on the period 1969 to 1982 when the name Leyland was used on the bonnet of a range of blue tractors all built in Bathgate, Scotland. All the various models built during this time are looked at in detail and in perspective as each new product brought new innovations and improvements, such as quiet cabs and syncromesh gearing, as well as some less successful developments. The story continues when Leyland Tractors was sold to Marshall of Gainsborough but concludes in the mid-1980s when the firm faltered. The last section of the book then looks at the legacy of the Leyland tractors and celebrates the fact that many have been restored by collectors and still others are still out on farms working as they were intended.
