Excellent show of DBs today at Castlederg. The fork trucks and the home built garden tractors and trailer added a lot of interest to your show. I'm no lover of big American Case machines but the roar of the Scania is something else.
Congratulations

What an interesting tractor. I have a sales leaflet in German which shows the 4WD version of the 880 Selectamatic. I have wondered for 25 years if any were actually built. Now I know at least two were as the decals on the brochure tractor were the German type. I believe the front axle was Kramer. Ca...

Back to front tractor

I have just noticed that the photo of the left hand tractor at the top of this website has been reverse printed. Wondered about the siting of the air cleaner.
It has happened to me before.

Great that Leslie's TVO 900 can still do a job of work. The DB goodies on display included a 990 4wd, 2 1200 4wds,...

David Brown Service Vans

Can anyone provide me with good quality photographs of service vans from 1965 to 1980 period? I have recently bought a Bedford HA (Viva) van which I hope to refinish as a DB service van. Any help appreciated. Photos of any make of vehicle from the period would be helpful.
Thanks in anticipation
