A Brief History of Pioneer Auto Show’s Rarest Antique Tractors

1959 Lanz Tractor

The Lanz tractor hails from Mannheim, Germany, where the factory built steam engines and motor cultivators before producing the famous Lanz Bulldog in 1921. Nearly a quarter million of these tractors were built over the next 30 years. In 1956, John Deere purchased Lanz – and by 1958, the Bulldog was being produced in John Deere green with Deere’s name appearing alongside Lanz. By the late 1960s, the Lanz name disappeared altogether.

1969 Porsche Tractor

Ferdinand Porsche also began designing tractors in the 1930s, coming up with the volk-schlepper, also known as the peoples’ tractor. No serious production began before World War II and post-war regulations prevented Porsche from building tractors after the war. A licensing agreement with Allgaier led to the Porsche tractor entering production again.

1971 Lamborghini Tractor

In the late 1940s, Ferruccio Lamborghini started building tractors in Italy. Initially, the tractors were built using a mixture of surplus military hardware from World War II – but by 1954, Lamborghini was building its own engines. In the late 1960s, Ferrucio became disinterested in tractors, and the firm was formally acquired by SAME in 1971. The Lamborghini name is still used on tractors today, as part of the SAME Deutz-Fahr Group.
