Farmer George must be about 75 now

Things were really not looking good in 1973 and the release of the last of the Massey Fergusons in the 1:43 range didn't help appearances. This and its Shovel sister, that appeared the following year, are really very poor. Little detail, simply bland and not something you would have wanted to play with much as a kid either. But who's that in the cab with his scarf blowing inside the cab (presumably from the draught from the open wheel arches!)...?

Well, if it isn't good ol' Farmer George, still going strong after his first appearance way back in 1961.

And not looking a day older.
