The 565 was the least popular model of the 500 range most buyers went for the 575 with 10hp more for the same money as the 565 the most popular model was the 590.

565 60 hp DIN 575 66 hp DIN Both fitted with Perkins A4.236 engine. Sorry to be pedantic but these little details stick in my aging brain as I used to to sell them over 30 years ago. 565 sold well to start with as it replaced the very popular and long established 165 but 575 soon became a good seller with Beauvais built 4wd available from around '78: 565 2wd only unless Four Wheel Traction cxonersion. Could have 575 on factory-fit radial tyres too in later years.

It must be an area thing Peter as around Notts, Lincs, East Yorks area you never saw 565 most farms ran 575 & 590 and a lot of contractors replaced old 1080's with 595 but then also the 165 was not a common choice at the end of 100 series more 175/178 185/188
seen plenty of photos of 575 4wd but only new of one lacal farm with one on a V plate

Apologies ! 565 WAS available on factory-fit Radial Tyres. Base Spec. 565 £ 9190 + VAT. 575 was £ 600 more (final 500 Series Price List November '81) but 575 had Front Weight Frame included.
