I know it is not red and doesn't start with C, but over a year ago I made an offer for this piece of old iron, several times I have renewed my offer but never was it accepted, that is until about a week ago, My original price was accepted, no haggling!
So today at 12 noon, I arrived a few miles away with an envelope full of notes and a cheque, in the Landrover and a borrowed trailer, 3.30 it was unloaded chez nous (at our house) with three flat tyres, not having run for about 30 years.
After the last war, germany was made to give away a lot of patents and the like to France as damages to France.
One of those things was a Lanz Tractor of 25HP. IN Lanz Language it would be a 7506 of 1949, but it is made in France to Lanz designs and it is called "Le Parcheron".
In french Le Percheron is a sort of draught-horse, somewhat like a Clydsdale, the tractor was called that as it was a replacement for the horse.
Enough of the history lesson, but a very interesting addition to the stable, 6000 made, not many remaining, I know of two others in this area.
