Auction: Massey collector pockets record prices of up to €82,000

Massey Ferguson Prices: Auction Report

“Tenacious” collector, Alan Bancroft, secured several record prices at his sale of over 40 classic and vintage Massey Ferguson tractors and implements last weekend.

East Anglian-based auctioneer, Cheffins, hosted the on-site sale in Skipton, Yorkshire, on the well-known collector’s behalf on Saturday, May 7th, 2022.

He has turned his attention to adding more tractors to his pre-existing collection of Massey Ferguson tractors and implements following a dispersal sale that the auction company hosted five years ago.

Highlights from his most recent sale include:

  • 1982 Massey Ferguson 1250: £70,000;
  • 1995 Massey Ferguson 399: £28,000;
  • 1996 Massey Ferguson 6120: £27,800;
  • Massey Ferguson 390T: £26,000;
  • 1986 Massey Ferguson 698T: £25,500.

Implement prices:

  • Massey Ferguson 39 cultivator: £5,900;
  • Also, a Massey Ferguson 124 baler: £4,300;
  • Massey Ferguson 100 tanker: £4,300.

Oliver Godfrey, head of the machinery department at Cheffins, branded the sale as “one of epic proportions” for Massey Ferguson collectors.

He said: “As a long-standing client and friend of Cheffins, Alan’s sale included a number of tractors bought through us in the past, which came together to create a stunning collection and exciting sale day.”

“Collections of this calibre rarely come to the market, and understandably, pre-sale interest was huge. The online catalogue alone saw over 55,000 views.”

He said he travels the length and breadth of the country, sourcing only the finest examples manufactured by Massey Ferguson.

This, Godfrey added, translated into a number of record prices achieved at the sale.
