Clicked last week at Jaipur these Massey Ferguson tractors, with the classic design still ply on the roads.

The pictures of the same fleet, at the same place, have been clicked on two different mornings.

By daytime, these would go out for duties and only in the mornings these could be sighted.

While walking in Byculla I spotted this Leyland fire engine at the Fire Station on display. Seems to be newly restored. I had no idea something like this was retained, and I am very pleased to see it presented so well. I wonder if it runs.

This Leyland Fire engine has been there since ages and is always in top-top condition. It was parked under a shade earlier, now seems to be moved due to the huge renovation project ongoing at that site.

Again clicked the Tata 1210 rescue crane at Kolkata a few days ago, during my visit. As it moves rarely, here is one showing its moving.

Dear Anjan,
Those tractors are truly classic as they the older model Massey Fergusons. The rear wheel fendor design was changed in early nineties. New ones are squarish with a provision for sitting single person, older ones are round Ines as seen in your picture.
So in my estimate they are at least 20-22 yes old.

That's the short bonnet series introduced in Germany in 1959 in response to new and stricter motor vehicle rules. There were many models in this series which replaced the long bonnet trucks like L 312. This particular model seems to be L 323 whose picture is posted below.

In India, Tata replaced the long bonnet 1210D with short bonnet 1210S in 1975. However, unlike 1210D, the 1210S wasn't a rebadged Merc but Tata's own design!

Our family still owns this tractor and we use it in our estate. The Massey Ferguson tractors were one of the most reliable (at the time) tractors. The extended family in my native place also own this tractor and all of them are still going strong. IMO, this is one of the better looking tractors seen in India. I even had a scale model of this when I was a kid. Let me see if I can find a pic of it.

I actually think these were rather cute! 'wish Tata had introduced them here as well! I reckon this particular truck had been brought into Goa under the Portugese before the liberation?

They had a reputation for being exceptionally tough. They were sold mostly in the developing world, the developed markets having shifted to space saving full forward cabs much earlier.

The semi forward 1210S that Tata introduced in 1975 was Tata's own design and didn't look any less attractive! I always admired the fact that Tata had produced an original design, instead of giving the market a re-badged Merc. In places like Nigeria, Ghana and Malaysia, 1210S successfully competed against the Merc semi.

Since 1210S offered greater space for cargo (with the same external dimensions), the Indian market instantly fell in love with it! Drivers used to say "It has a steel head", not knowing that the "S" stood for semi-forward. When I would ask them what was the head of 1210D engine made of, they would say "Deckchyoon". Actually, the "D" stood for direct injection.

It doesn't look that old to me! Although production stopped in Germany in 1995, they continued to be made outside, especially Brazil. At times, they were imported into India also, by the buyers.
