It's a Leyland, used to be called a Nuffield, but then folks got wise and stopped buying Nuffields so they changed the name to Leyland, kind of the "new & Improved" scam. With all the reorganization Leyland went through and the eventual closing or sale of the various divisions it's an ORPHAN, not a red-headed step child or the crazy uncle no one talks about but a real genuine orphan.

looks like the 384 Leyland I once had. Was told by previous owner he bought it new in around 71.

If a guy wanted it to use I'd say it's about 6K too high. Parts are impossible to find. I know I have a TLB with a Leyland engine in it. They were not a bad tractor just no support for em in the US.

Only found a few Leylands in my reference books... I -think- this one (in original post - not the one I saw) is a 255. If it is, it is a 222 c.i. 4-
cylinder, 48 pto h.p., 6300 pound tractor..not even a match for a 5000.

Just back from the sale - yep, it was a 384. Brought a whopping $475. Franken-Farmall H/backhoe brought an even $1000. I was out bid on all the gravity boxes, paid $700 for a 25KW generator for my uncle, and got 5 shares and 3 shins for my plow for $45...not a bad day.

That, friends... is a British Leyland. At 3800... the asking price is about 3600 too high.

Can tell you she was a big girl, about the size of a Ford 7000/8000. Larger than a 5000 for sure, tires notwithstanding.

Although I don't know Leyland models, the ones around here were seldom over 80 h.p. If you put a 5000 with the same size tires along side it... I think you'll find they are similar. A 7000 (same frame as a 5000) should out work it... anything with the 401 would flat out crush it. If the link works, you'll see one at a sale here today. If I go, I'll try to find out what it brings. :)

The bolt patterns made me think Brit/European. Hadn't thought of Leyland. Maybe Duetze(sp?).

Price does depend on strength/HP really. 80 or 90 horseys and maybe considering condition.
Was only spot on 40 mile run home without rain, so only had a minute to look. Hopefully get chance to ask tomorrow. Going to prowl CL later and see if on there.

If it ain't a Ford, maybe British-Leyland? Diesel and runs good - it's got possibilities....

Rode hard, put away wet and over priced.

Other than that, I don't know! :lol:
The headlights look like one of the Europe built models.

Any numbers on it?

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
