Austin model R no. 1907 is a preserved Austin tractor built in 1923 by the Austin Motor Company in France. Owned by P & E Ducksbury from Nottinghamshire. Bought from The Goodman Collection dispersal sale in 2007.
This is an excellent example of preserving a tractor by Conservation in as near original condition as possible and not restoring to a Showmans exhibition piece, with added bling as occurs with some tractors which ruins the originality..
