I very strongly doubt whether this can be a Nuffield. The colour is wrong and the top cover extends too far down for a Nuffield 460 or Universal 4, the two models it would be most likely to be. Would rather look at DB.

This tractor keeps intriguing me...

I retract - this is not a DB, *BUT* it is definitely NOT a Nuffield either (those who believe it is, are of course welcome to prove it! ;) )

I have started homing in on the name on the side, and after Photoshopping it a bit, I am convinced that it is a long, and most likely double-barrel name, like McCormick-Deering or International Harvester (maybe - the general shape would fit), Allis-Chalmers (eh? nah!), Massey-Harris (no!) or Deutz-Fahr (not impossible). The possibility that really excites me, though, is Bolinder Munktell, like in /vehicle_13983-Bolinder-Munktell-BM-350-Boxer.html, and of which quite a number can be seen in the photos section of the http://www.bmsidan.se/english/index.html site. The tractor in the third picture from the top on http://www.mna.hkr.se/~erj/Traktorsidan.htm, and especially its colour, strengthens my suspicion...

Any comments or clarification?

It is pretty certainly a Bolinder-Munktell BM 55, made from 1953 until 1959 in Eskilstuna, Sweden. The tractor on the right looks like a BM-Volvo 350, made from 1959 until 1967 in the same factory. The left tractor is a Hatz, made in Ruhstorf/Rott, Germany. Hatz made tractors from 1953 until 1964. The rounded bonnet of this one identifies it as a late model ...
