OTA Monarch Tractor from 1951.

db4600 asked for some information on OTA.

They were a company set up in the 1940's in Coventry, England called Oak Tree Appliances with the idea of building a light car and tractor that were affordable in a restricted economy of the time. The tractor was originally designed as a three wheel model and was powered by a Ford 10 hp engine, similar to the one that was used in the English Ford car range of Anglia, Prefect and Popular. The tractor performed well and was well liked by small farmers and horticultural growers, being very manoeuvrable and light. It had independent hydraulics powered by an engine driven hydraulic pump.

Like many companies at the time, OTA were under-capitalised and by the early 1950's, tractors like the Ferguson TE range had taken the market for a light tractor. OTA eventually sold the Monarch tractor production to the Singer Motor Company, who in turn, were taken over by the Rootes Group, and the tractor discontinued. Rootes, in turn were taken over by Chrysler.

My mom at one time had a little Ford Prefect. One time she was about a mile away from home when it quit running. Two of my brothers picked up the front of the car and turned it around so it was headed toward home then pulled it home with the tractor.

I had a 1953 Anglia like this one. It had a plywood floor that you lifted out to get to the jacking points rom the inside. I once had 8 young ladies in it to take them to a dance. Three on the back seat with three on their laps and two on the front seat with me driving. Only for four miles but Boy what a trip for a young man. :0)
