Nuffield M4 - 1953

NUFFIELD M4 – c. 1953

English Flag

The Nuffield M4 tractors were built in the UK by Morris Motors between 1948 and 1961. The initial engine was a Morris 4-cylinder, side-valve engine running on TVO (Tractor Vaporising Oil) which was replaced by a Perkins P4 Diesel in 1951. This motor was also being replaced by a BMC Diesel in 1954, after its takeover of Perkins. 

William Morris, the founder of Morris Motors changed his name to Nuffield after being honoured with a Peerage. When Morris Motors decided to manufacture tractors, the Nuffield name was chosen for their agricultural division. The Nuffield tractor name was eventually changed to Leyland in 1969 and the poppy red was replaced with a 2-tone blue.
