These colourful tractors are an Australian made tractor. Started by Bob Chamberlain, the Chamberlain tractor was built in Perth, WA from 1949 until being gradually bought out by John Deere in the 1970’s, ceasing all Australian manufacturing in 1986. Photographed at today's Chamberlain Championship at the Corowa Vintage Tractor Pull and Machinery Rally.
Yet another industry we have let go. Sigh.ReplyDelete
What was the intro to the tv show Six Million Dollar Man? We have the skills. We have the technology. I can't remember exactly now the phrasing, but we did make really good machines in Australia, perhaps the P76 aside. I think Chamberlain made most excellent bulldozers too. I remember the branding Chamberlain Deere.ReplyDelete
We had a Leyland P76 whilst growing up so I totally understand your sentiments about them!!Delete
Oh, I love this. One tough tractor I imagine. BReplyDelete
Interesting that Australia made tractors, I did not know that. Cheers DianeReplyDelete
Looks like they are all lined up for a race. : )ReplyDelete
We have a Kubota tractor and it too is orange.
Impressive line-up of these 'oldies'!ReplyDelete
Lovely colors in tractors. I've seen also here orange color-tractors.ReplyDelete
But this color is just the same as we have in Metro (subway).
