    Most of us in the U.S. have never seen that brand of machine. more information would be very interesting, HP? Implements available? History. More pictures. Welcome to the forum. Don

The AUTO Culto Junior Rotary

 

The auto culto was power by a Villiers mk15 3HP power 4 stroke

 

Villiers engines  were made in England and this one  was built 1959

 

The first photos you see Villiers engine in  white undercoat to prepare this it took full day
