An auctioneer will bring more than 1,000 lots of vintage tractors, agricultural machinery and collectors’ items to Yorkshire for a sale later this month.

East Anglian-based auctioneer Cheffins will conduct the annual Harrogate Vintage Sale at the Great Yorkshire Showground on Saturday, August 19, which is expected to draw crowds from across the UK and Europe.

Oliver Godfrey, head of the machinery division at Cheffins, said: “With over 1,000 lots on offer, this will be one of the largest Harrogate Vintage collective auctions to take place in the past 25 years, since Cheffins started hosting the sale in 1997.

"The Harrogate sale really is one of the most popular and most enjoyable auctions we host, and it attracts collectors’ items from Ireland, North Wales and Scotland as well as the surrounding counties.

"It offers a great opportunity for collectors to pick up something special in the middle of the show season, as well as providing a great day out.

"There will be over 150 tractors on offer, with a large Massey Ferguson and Ferguson section, and a number of highlight lots which we will be watching closely on sale day.”

Among the tractors is a large Massey Ferguson and Ferguson collection, with more than 12 examples on offer. Also being sold on behalf of a single owner, is a chronological progression of Fordson tractors, from a Standard N, dated 1940 to a New Performance Super Major from 1963.

Another tractor set to be popular with vintage enthusiasts is a 1963 Doe Triple D tandem tractor, which is set to sell for around £50,000 and has been consigned from Yorkshire.

Among the classics, a 1982 International 3588 ‘Snoopy’ will be popular with collectors and has an estimate of £20,000 to £25,000, while a 1982 Trantor Series 1t, which has been fully restored could make £15,000.

These are joined by a 1981 Mercedes MB Trac 800 which has a pre-sale estimate of £14,000 to £16,000.

The sale will take place on August 19 from 9am at The Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG2 8NZ.
