Records tumbled as a collection of nearly 200 rare and vintage tractors - thought to be the largest in Britain - went under the hammer.

 

More than 1,700 people people attended the landmark sale, held at Norfolk farmer Paul Rackham’s Camp Farm, at Roudham, near Thetfod, last Saturday.

 

Among the highlights was a 1918 Holt 75 - the only surviving example of its kind used by the British Army during the First World War - which sold for £150,000.

 

A 1954 Marshall MP6 also fetched £80,500, a new UK record for a conventional ’vintage’ tractor.

 

Following hot on the heels of the Holt 75 and Marshall MP6 was a 1916 Saunderson Model G, which reached £52,000.

 

One of the rarest tractors in the sale was a 1922 Weeks-Dungey ’New Simplex’, which sold for £46,000.

 

Other top prices went to a 1925 Peterbro 18-35hp which fetched £36,000, an original 1958 David Brown 50D which topped £34,000 and an imported 1920 Waterloo Bay Model N which hit £31,000.

 

The sale was organised by Cambridgeshire-based auctioneers Cheffins and Suffolk’s Clarke and Simpson.
