    1. It is a Renault. During WW I and WW II, Renault produced tanks, which later on served as the base of tractors. The first tractors date back to 1919 and after 1930 Renault produced diesel engines too. About 1981 the colour of the tractors changed; from red to the present-day orange-ochre. Looking through old photos of Renault tractors I suspect this may have been the old red colour and possibly the 1960's. The modern ones are definitely more yellow in colour rather than this colour. Hope this helps ;-) Diane
