The little grey Fergie is probably the most popular tractor ever produced and certainly remains a favourite with enthusiasts today. The TE range arrived in Britain’s fields in 1946 after three decades of development, and was an instant hit with farmers who at that time were still adapting to mechanisation; by the end of production ten years later, well over five hundred thousand models had been manufactured, with two-thirds of that number exported all over the world.

This rare Ferguson TE Continental model was restored a number of years ago and was professionally resprayed. The restoration included a new: radiator, fuel tank, battery and front tyres. In show condition, the Fergie has attended many local shows and was a regular exhibit at the Dorset County Show, so much so that on more than one occasion the little tractor had to come to the rescue of vehicles stuck in boggy showgrounds.

Ready to use on road, field or track, the Fergusson is supplied with the V5C registration certificate and an instruction book.
