With more than 100 tractors on offer, Cheffins’ Cambridge vintage sale at Sutton on Saturday, July 15 saw top prices paid for classic and vintage tractors.

 

Star of the show was a 1939 Marshall Model M which has been in the same ownership since new and sold for £27,300. Bought by the vendor’s grandfather, Edgar Case, in 1939, the tractor has remained on the family farm in Withycombe, Minehead, ever since.

 

Bill King, Cheffins chairman said: “While July is one of our smaller vintage auctions, we had some exceptionally high quality items on offer, with strong prices paid across each section of the sale.

 

“The best examples of tractors sold well and we expect to see similar prices at our Harrogate sale next month.”

Other attractions included a 1920s Rumeley Oil Pull, which sold for £11,000, and a 1982 International 885XL made £6,600.

 

Another tractor which saw fierce bidding was a 1966 Allis Chalmers D21, which sold for £15,750 to a Bedfordshire collector.

 

Tractors from the Philip Fincham collection also sold well, including a Rumely Model L15-25, which sold for £11,550; a 1919 International Titan selling for £14,490; a 1975 County 1164 making £8,820 and a 1990 Ford TW-25 which sold for £7,665.
