Looks like a really good do! I had planned to get there but things came up at the last second so that was that!

Looks like the club was going from strength to strength, the final 1594 and the Silver Jubilee Tractor (and now the Load Car) Fantastic to have these pieces of history in possesion of the DBTC or members of the club who obviously care about the David Brown name.

With regards to the 1412, It does not matter whether the grill is the correct one or not, it is being looked after and preserved, a part of DB history! Better this than it being abused by some steering wheel attendant, broken up, or sent for scrap!

Perhaps knocking the tractor on minor points such as this is not the best way of praising the owner for looking after this unique machine, and as well loaning it to the club to make a stunning and irreplaceable duo?!

Regards

Eric

I totally agree with eric, Jim Espin was kind enough to loan us his pride and joy, and we were very pleased to have this as part of our club stand, our thanks also to Nick Hill for the loan of his Aston Martin DB7, our thanks also go to the people who came to see us at the club shop, and spent their money, we had a fantastic weekend, without you all the club would not be

Totally agree with what was said before about the 'Silver Jubilee' tractor. I think that we all have to be a little forgiving where things are 'slightly wrong'. Remember that when this tractor was discovered that it was little more than a wreck and a lot of time and money was spent on it and certain parts, such as the lower vallance or 'chin' of the bonnet, were at the time almost impossible to find and it is far better to leave it as it is rather than cut it up again just for the sake of the 'purist'. Even now certain parts that have come to the market such as mudguards, head and side lamps and other parts are wrong in many ways simply because some of those who do the parts have not got a clue what the original was like and are working from original parts that have been altered, plated, welded and cut about and will not fit all that it is intended to without further working. I have a very early 25D built in May 1954 and it is wrong in several ways. All the grease nipples are of the brass hexagon type which stopped being used in 1950. It also has the Cropmaster 3pt linkage and early 'swinging' linkage mounted drawbar and cradle just to mention a few points. When this tractor was built, they were using up what was left from the previous models which was very common, I did not alter these things because I researched the build of this tractor and discovered that that was how it came off the line, strictly speaking, it should be a Cropmaster Diesel.
