Chassis n ° 329766

- Nice restoration
- Sought after model
- Technically interesting
- No reserve

Delivered new in Germany, this Porsche tractor was exported in 1984 to Yugoslavia before landing up in Croatia. Completely restored, it is in a beautiful condition. It is powered by a three-cylinder four-stroke diesel engine that featured a technical distinction in being air-cooled, facilitating maintenance. Power was supplied by a Bosch injection system. With a cylinder capacity of 2625cc, and with a compression ratio of 19:1, the engine developed 35bhp at 2300rpm for a total weight of 1,585 kg, which allowed it to reach 34 km/h. The transmission was through a Fichtel & Sachs double clutch connected to a Deutz T25 gearbox with eight forward and two reverse gears. It could be equipped with all the necessary equipment for farming.
Produced from 1961 to 1963 with production totaling 3,600 units, this tractor with a prestigious brand name featured modern technology and had a beautiful finish that made it a great success. Very popular today with enthusiasts of tractors and agricultural equipment, it represents a classic in the same way as tractors by Vierzon or Lanz Bulldog.
