August 12, 2019

This tractor was purchased new by Charlie Vella Senior in 1969 from Windsor Farm Equipment. It spent 40 years working in Vella’s vegetable and strawberry farm at Schofields.

The tractor spent another 4 years working at North Richmond. After working at the farms it underwent a major restoration program starting in July 2012 and was completed in March 2013. The work was carried out by Charlie Junior and Austin and other members of the family. The tractor is a David Brown powered by a David Brown 48 horsepower engine. With a David Brown 3 cylinder engine the tractor was produced in England from 1965 to 1971. The tractor restoration was carried out in memory of mum and dad (Charlie and Mary).
