The collection, which includes other vehicles, is being sold at the Derek Cooper Transport Ltd yard by auctioneers Cheffins on behalf of Gary Cooper, son of haulage company founder, Derek. Key lots include 1940s and 50s Field Marshall tractors and a 1930s Marshall Model M. Cheffins chair Bill King said: “Gary Cooper is an avid collector who purchased a series of classic and vintage tractors and commercials from us and other sources over the years. Following the family’s decision to let the haulage yard at Risby, they are now taking steps to disperse of the collection. Many of these interesting machines have been regulars at vintage shows and rallies and we expect them to draw significant interest from across the region and further afield.”
