Crowds expected at rare vintage tractor auction

Old-kit enthusiasts are expected to head to Cheffins’ Cambridge Vintage Sale in considerable numbers on 26 April.

One of the rarest lots is a 1936 Ferguson Brown A Industrial, which is believed to be one of only two in existence. There’s also an original 1948 David Brown Thresherman, which replaced a Fowler steam engine in a Yorkshire threshing business.

Another rare item is the Swedish-made 1924 Avance 30hp diesel tractor, said to be the first of its type to be offered for sale by auction in the UK.

More recent items are a 1994 Case 4220 with just 28 hours on the clock, a 1994 Track Marshall TM200 with only 1,836 hours showing and a Ford 4110 with only 506 hours. These tractors would normally have 5,000-8,000 hours on the clock.

Other machines include a Cantatore Field Boy, Fowler VFA, John Deere 3130, Ferguson TEF-20, Massey Ferguson 35, Ford 3000 and a Fordson Super Major. The sale also boasts no fewer than four Field Marshalls, with two Series IIIa, a Series III and a Series II.

A rare Howard Platypus 30, Roadless Standard N Full Track, Porsche Super Export, Turner “Yeoman of England” and two Ford 7810s – one a Silver Jubilee model – and a David Brown 50TD and Trackmaster 30 will also be up for grabs.
