Trattori Lamborghini unveiled an update to their smallest offering, the 1R, at the 68th Verona Agricultural Fair in March 1966. This “new series” restyling provided a new dashboard, headlights, front cowl, and color scheme to the company’s two-cylinder model. As described in Tonino Lamborghini’s tractor anthology Ferrucio Lamborghini: I Trattori, just 258 1R examples of this style were registered in 1967.

This example offered here was sold new in Padua, Veneto, Italy and registered on 15 September 1967. It has reportedly remained within the Veneto region since new and was acquired from a private collection there by the consignor in “mostly original” condition still wearing its original paint and registration plate, as well as the rounded seat back found on early production examples.

In late 2020, the consignor had the tractor stripped and resprayed in its factory correct colors of Light Blue (5001) and Blood Orange (2009). A completely new wiring loom was fashioned from the original pattern and partnered with a new set of rear lights and FIAMM battery. The dash and side plates are new alloy replacements of the correct type, while the tachometer is the original unit that has been rebuilt.

The 1,462-cubic centimeter, two-cylinder engine is believed to be the original 26 horsepower unit; it has been fitted with a new replacement exhaust. Lastly, this Lamborghini tractor has been fitted with a new suite of rubber hoses, bonnet seals, two new front tires, and a new front “Gallardo” emblem.
