In 1960 the Standard Motor Company developed a Tractor to compete with the Fergusons that they had been building throughout the 1950's, the manufacturing rights to which they had sold off to Massey Harris of Canada in 1959.
Using a mass of previously undiscovered archive material and photographs of the surviving prototype, Phil Homer describes in a fascinating 10 page article how the Tractor was developed and why it never made it into production.
The feature is published in the magazine "Tractor and Machinery" over 2 parts, that is the May and June editions. The cover of the June edition is shown.
"Tractor and Machinery" is a full colour 196 page A4 format magazine covering all aspects of the Tractor world. Priced at £3.95, you can order it from any good Newsagent.
