In 1948, Lord Nuffield made a noble attempt to break into the world of tractors with a new model made by his Nuffield Mechanisations firm that had built military vehicles during World War II. Produced in Birmingham, his tractor featured sophisticated hydraulic systems, a five-speed gearbox and some useful diesel expertise gained initially from the Swiss firm of Saurer. Nuffield's orange tractors earned a good reputation and became popular in the 1950s. They were offered in a variety of sizes and lasted until 1969 when British Leyland was formed.
