Auction report: Were these ‘fiesty’ Fords the pick of the bunch?

Saturday, July 20, saw the latest Cambridge Vintage Sale (auction) take place at Cheffins Auctioneers’ sale grounds in Sutton, Cambridge (England).

This report focuses on some of the later Ford tractor highights – including some especially eye-catching lots.

In accompanying articles, we look at a variety of other brands/lots – to see how they fared under the hammer.

Tim Scrivener was at the auction for AgriLand to take these photographs and to note the key prices. All of the pictures in this report are from Saturday’s auction.

All (hammer/sale) prices were subject to a ‘buyer’s premium’ of 6%.

All (hammer/sale) prices were also subject to VAT at the local rate unless otherwise stated (i.e. VAT must be added to all of the prices in the captions below).

Any statement of recorded hours may simply be a reflection of what was visible on the tractor’s odometer or, if that wasn’t available, what was claimed in the auction catalogue.
