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.
