Glasgow 28hp tractor, 1919

Made:
1914-1924 in Glasgow and Scotland

Wallace 'Glasgow' agricultural tractor on three steel wheels, all driven, by Wallace (Glasgow) Ltd., Cardonald, Scotland, Serial No. 234, c. 1919. Engine: Serial No. 26918 C4, 4-cylinder side valve gasoline (petrol)/kerosene, by the Continental Motors Corporation, Detroit, U.S.A. This tractor was another attempt to compete with the Fordson tractor in the UK market. It was an unusual form of three wheeled tractor with drive to all wheels. Its 3 point stability and tractive power made it popular in hill country and waterlogged soils, and it did find favour abroad, however its cost was against it. This marque of tractor finally succumbed to the Fordson and economic depression in the mid 1920's
