Collecting and restoring Vintage Tractors and Lorries has been a hobby of mine since 1978. In the early days I started with a 1941 Standard Fordson model N, followed by a TVO Fordson Major E27N, later I restored another E27N with a Perkins P6 engine,followed by a Ferguson TEA 20 acquired as a non runner.
A major restoration project was a Thames Trader churn lorry which originally was owned by the Milk Marketing Board. This required a lot of work, but won a major prize at the Historic Commercial Vehicle rally at Crick one year which made all the work very worthwhile.
All of the above vehicles moved on over the years due to lack of space, but now I have a little more room.
Current tractors include a 1944 Ford Ferguson 9NAN "Beltane Queen", 1957 Fordson Dexta "Wee Cracker", 1964 Fordson Super Dexta "Nessie", 1982 Leyland 302 "Valentine", Replica mini Ferguson T20 "Teeny", Massey Ferguson FF30DS "The Puddock", Project Ferguson T20 special " FergyFordex" All the tractors are used from time to time around the site and on Road Runs and Rallies.
The Massey Ferguson FF30DS is a French built Ferguson similar to the T20 but all red in colour except for its Grey bonnet, wings and wheels. It has been named the "Puddock" due to its French link.
Projects on going are a repaint and repairs of the Leyland 302, Repair of a trailer given to me and a new secret project with a Ferguson T20.
