Cheffins will bring over 900 lots of classic and vintage tractors, agricultural machinery, vehicles and collector’s items to Yorkshire at the forthcoming annual Harrogate Vintage Sale.
Hosted at the Great Yorkshire Showground on August 20th, 2022, the sale will be “the largest auction of its type” in the Northern Counties, the East East Anglian-based auctioneer claims.
The sale – which includes 130 classic and vintage tractors – is set to draw crowds from across the UK and Europe.
It will take place from 10.30 am at The Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG2 8NZ.
There are several vehicles, bygones, collectors’ items, stationary engines and implements catalogued for the sale.
Highlights include a 1919 International Titan 10-20 tractor, “an older restoration with strong provenance”.
It has been part of several well-renowned collections, including at Toddington Manor and was once in the ownership of collector, Paul Rackham.
This over 100-year-old tractor has an estimate of £12,000 – £15,000.
Also on offer is a 1948 Field Marshall Series II, which is in “immaculate” condition and has an estimate of £10,000 – £12,000.
It previously won Best in Show at the Carrington Rally and Best Series II at the Marshall Golden Jubilee.
There will also be several restored Massey Ferguson 135’s, and a 1956 Porsche A133, which has also been renovated and is set to sell for £9,500 – £10,500.
‘Key’ date in vintage and classic calendar
Oliver Godfrey, head of the machinery department at Cheffins, says the Harrogate Sale has always been “a key date” in the vintage and classic calendar and attracts enthusiasts from “well over” Europe.
“We look forward to seeing buyers, old and new, at the sale. We are offering online bidding throughout the tractor and vehicle section.”
“Whilst offering collectors a mid-show season opportunity to pick up a new kit, the sale also provides a fantastic day out.”
“We expect buyers to be particularly interested in the Titan tractor, as it is a rare and fabulously maintained example, which has been in the hands of some of the most well-known collectors on the circuit,” he concluded.
