  • Description

This Ferguson Tractor was found as a mess on a scrapheap by a retired teacher at Rycotewood College. He enlisted the help of students to repair and restore the tractor to working condition. At a later date, it was purchased by The MERL with the help of the Science Museum.

The tractor was probably manufactured in 1948. It is one of the earliest types built by the Standard Motor Company at their Banner Lane plant, Coventry.

Today, the tractor is displayed in The MERL’s Collecting Rural England gallery. Plan your free visit to the museum and see this object in person.
