Largest private Ford tractor collection up for grabs

A unique collection of 83 classic Ford tractors owned by avid restorer Phillip Warren is set to be auctioned in Devon.

The fleet is thought to be one of the biggest single-manufacturer accumulations to come to market for several decades and started being amassed in 1989 when Mr Warren bought a Ford 5000 Select-O-Speed.
