Yep, that's the ones. It looks like the styling was inspired by the W series internationals. Are Detroits popular over there? They attract a lot of attention here at the pulls, but don't often win.

No relation to International? At first I thought they were re-powered W-9s too.

These are Australian Designed and Built Chamberlain Tractors .

I know about Howard Rotivators (have a 3 point hitch version myself), but did they also make their own tractors?

Thanks for these informative links Ian! I'm learning something new every day. Never heard of a Chamberlain tractor, and did not realize Howard built so many different tractors.
