|1958||Massey Ferguson||MF35||N/A||£1400 + buyers premium|
Brief History: This is a Massey Ferguson MF35 Tractor. Manufactured in the United Kingdom and launched on 1 October 1956, it marked the transition from the iconic Ferguson TE20 otherwise know as the ‘Little Grey Fergie’. The first FE35, bearing serial number 1001, rolled off the production line on 27 August the same year. While the TE20 was famously known as the “Little Grey Fergie” due to its all-grey exterior, the FE35 introduced a striking change with its grey shell and wheels complemented by a bronze-finished body, earning it the moniker “Gold Belly.”
With a production run that saw 73,655 units before it was rebadged as the MF35 in 1957, which is the category that this tractor comes under. The MF35 introduced a new color scheme of red and grey, signaling a shift in the Massey Ferguson legacy. In 1959, Massey Ferguson acquired Perkins Engines, ushering in the era of a new diesel Perkins engine in the MF35.
