Leyland Tractors
Home > Leyland Tractors
Jonathan Whitlam
Leyland Tractors explores the story of
the Leyland tractor, beginning with
the orange Nuffield tractor of 1948,
which was to influence the development
of Leyland tractors in many key ways.
The focus then shifts to the period
from 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, 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,
concluding in the mid-1980s when the
firm faltered. Finally, we take a look
at the legacy of the Leyland tractor,
celebrating their endurance, and the
fact that many have been restored by
collectors, while still others are
still out on farms, working as they
were intended.
Filled with
original modern photography of
tractors both at work and on display,
and containing previously unseen
material, this book is a unique
addition to the tractor enthusiast’s
library.
