Auction report: £16,000 for a Ford 4610 with less than 1,000 hours

Saturday, April 27, saw a big selection of older tractors/machines offered for sale at the Cambridge Vintage Auction (Sutton, Cambridge, England).

The busy sale was conducted by Cheffins.

One of the especially noteworthy results was a winning bid of £16,000 (plus 5% commission; no VAT) for a 1989 Ford 4610 (pictured above).

This Generation III model was described as “an ultra low houred example in wonderful, original condition” and as a “one-owner tractor” that was previously used on a crop science unit. The clock was showing just 973 hours.
