The famous tractor is just one of eight that are known to exist in the world

The hammer fell at £310,000 plus commission (approximately €360,000) for “the most important tractor ever to come to auction in the UK” last Saturday (October 19th).

Lot number 2310, a 1903 IVEL Agricultural Motor 2-cylinder petrol tractor, achieved the price tag at Cheffins’ Vintage Auction near Ely in Cambridgeshire.

According to the auction catalogue, the unique and famous vintage machine is just one of eight that are known to exist in the world. “It’s importance to early British tractor history cannot be overstated.”

“Such an opportunity is unlikely ever to be repeated.” the catalogue added.

County 1884

Another “rare and very desirable machine” sold for £132,000 plus VAT and commission (approximately €153,450) at the same auction, as reported by us here.

The County 1884 was sold with full documentation including its original manuals, parts book and sales leaflet.

Estimates suggest that there are no more than 20 County 1884s in preservation.
