The Cambridge Spring Sale is the largest colective vintage tractor sale in Europe with 3400 lots on offer, including over 400 tractors. The highlight of the day was a highly collectable 1967 Northrop 5006, one of only 4 made at the Blackburn factory using the Ford 2703E engine. A Staffordshire collector took it home for a staggering £60,000.

Another lot which created interest from the father and son was a 1948 David Brown Thresherman at £3,500.
