Cambridgeshire Steam & Vintage Vehicle Rally

Posted by Chris Graham on 6th October 2022

Chris Graham spotlights some of the Ford and Fordson tractors on display at this year’s Cambridgeshire Steam & Vintage Vehicle Rally.

This successful and popular event took place on July 9/10th, and offered visitors the chance to see a wide range of interesting exhibits, many of which were paraded around the arena in the picturesque setting of Quy Country Park, just outside Cambridge.

Attendance at the show – which has been running since 2009 – seemed good and, like so many events like this, it provided a very enjoyable and friendly family day out.

Here are a selection of the tractors I spotted among the 100 or so machines on the showground.

Cambridgeshire Steam & Vintage Vehicle Rally: I&T Morrison, who travelled from Essex with their 1950 Fordson E27N to be at this event.


G Broughton’s brightly painted, 1939 Fordson Standard N certainly caught the eye.


Another bright colour scheme presented on P Lewis’ 1960 Fordson Doe Triple D.


It’s always evocative to see a tractor in its working clothes parading in the arena, as with M Howell’s 1955 Fordson E1A Major.

I think this is C Underwood’s 1959 Fordson Power Major although, in the programme, the registration is listed as ‘271 HCE’, so I stand to be corrected.

This County 1164 must have been a late entry as it wasn’t listed in the programme. Great to see it, all the same!

S Dacey’s 1948 E27N Major dwarfs the little Dexta following on behind.
