The “Motomeccanica Brevetti Ing. Pavesi” was a company founded in Milan to produce tractors at the beginning of the 1930s by the Engineer Ugo Pavesi, born in Turin in the 1886. In the 1911 Pavesi with Giulio Tolotti built the first Italian tractor.

The first tractor produced from the Motomeccanica was the Balilla in 1931  and in 1933 arrived the tracked model, the first of its type in Italy. The Balilla was a 4-wheel drive tractor used from different. This was the last tractor build from Pavesi because he died in the 1935.

The tractor that we have in sale is the Motomeccanica RP3 equipped with a Perkins 3-cylinder engine  generating 30hp and 2365cc. The Perkins was also the engine used by Alfa Romeo in its first diesel-powered car. With only 866 units ever built, this is a very rare piece. Subject to a comprehensive restoration, this lovely tractor, presented in the original Massey Ferguson colour combination of red and grey, comes to sale with its Italian registration papers.
