HISTORIC and rare items will be among the lots in Cheffins Harrogate Vintage Sale at the Great Yorkshire Showground next week.

The 20th anniversary sale takes place on Saturday, August 19, and includes more than 100 tractors, a range of steam engines and vehicles.

The top lots among the tractors include a 1988 Massey Ferguson 360, which has only 816 hours on the clock, and is still on its original Kleber tyres. It could make £18,000.

There is also a 1966 Massey Ferguson 135 and 1965 Massey Ferguson 130, which are estimated at £6,000 and £5,000, respectively.

Three Roadless and County tractors from a single East Yorkshire farmer are also expected to generate some interest.

All in good condition, they include a 1959 Roadless Power Major with an estimate of £6,000-£8,000; a 1965 654 Super 4 with an estimate of £8,000-£10,000; and a County Super Major Super 4 with an estimate of £7,000-£9,000.

Also on offer is a Marshall Model M dating back to the 1940s, which could make up to £18,000, and a rare Ferguson Brown Type A from the brief collaboration between Henry Ford and Harry Ferguson in the late 1930s that is expected to achieve from £8,000 to £10,000.

For those looking for something a bit different there is a Yorkshire-built example of a Jowett Light Car dating back to 1927. The car still has its original engine and gearbox and its Leeds-issued registration document. It is estimated to make between £14,000 and £16,000.

A restored Brayshaw living wagon features many original features, including inlaid walnut veneered panelling.

There is a self-contained bedroom with wardrobes, many cupboards and corner dressing table with a pink glass framed mirror.

The sitting-room has a fold-down double bed, multi-fuel stove, plug-in electrics, stunning lighting and cut-glass side and end windows.

It also features Mollycroft cut-glass windows, a separate kitchen with two sinks, sunken bath under trapdoor, new Calor Gas cooker and gas fridge.

In the bygones section, there is an excellent selection of stationary engines, implements, ploughs and spares, which always generate significant interest among collectors and enthusiasts.

Bill King, Cheffins chairman, said: “The Harrogate sale has always been a key date in the vintage and classic calendar and attracts enthusiasts from all over Europe.

“In the past 20 years, we have sold more than 1,500 tractors at the Great Yorkshire Showground and offered 12,000 lots in total.

“The sale has grown every year and since 1997, we have increased our offering from approximately 20 tractors to in excess of 100.

“The Harrogate Sale really is one of the most popular and most enjoyable sales and it attracts collectors’ items from Ireland, North Wales and Scotland, as well as the surrounding counties.”
