Gloppe tractors

Gloppe tractors were manufactured by J. M. Gloppe, of 7 rue Docteur Robatel, Lyon, France with Enfield twin-cylinder diesel engines. Presented in the 1951 Lyon exhibition they generated quite a bit of interest. There appears to be the remnants of a factory at that place (number 7 corresponds to the lot with vegetation and a pool in it, the building looks quite old), Here is a video of an Enfield twin diesel engine, similar to the ones used in the tractors (hat tip David Blasco),
