It’s Showtime! Vintage Tractor Events in Britain

The period between May and September offers plenty of vintage tractor shows in the U.K.

Field Marshall Tractor
An unrestored Field Marshall tractor dating to about 1950. It is just like the one I fell in love with during my first visit to a vintage vehicle rally in the 1970s. How I wish my father had bought one of these tractors back then, as today they frequently sell for more than £10,000 (about $15,500). These British-built, single-cylinder Field Marshall tractors have an unmistakable sound and were frequently used for belt work, often by contractors to provide power to threshing machines.
