A 1919 Albion Anglo-Amercian Oil Company delivery lorry is up for sale and is expected to achieve around £40,000 - £50,000 in part due to the amount of gold leaf in its sign.

It has only had two owners from new, and was bought by the vendor in 1985, still in the Anglo American Oil Co livery. It was fully restored in 2011, including over £1,500-worth of gold leaf used to recreate the sign writing.

Cheffins’ Cambridge Vintage Sale at Sutton, near Ely is to take place on April 21 and will feature unusual classic cars, motorcycles, tractors and steam engines.

Of the 173 tractors available on the day, the most noteworthy is the incredibly rare c.1920 Ruston & Hornsby British Wallis tractor which sold for £525 in 1919, making it one of the most expensive tractors on the market at the time with an estimate of £30,000 - £35,000.

The other tractors expected to draw significant interest include two Roadless tractors dating back to 1980 and 1981. The 1981 980 4clyinder Roadless is one of only 11 known to still be remaining. Both of these items have estimates of £35,000 - £40,000 apiece. Also set to be popular with collectors is a 1945 Marshall Model M with an estimate of £20,000 - £22,000 and a 1966 Nuffield Bray tractor which is set to make £20,000 - £22,000.

In the cars and bikes section, a 1927 Talbot Boat Tail Tourer which has been meticulously restored will be popular, with an estimate of £35,000 - £45,000.

There is also a collection of classic motorbikes which includes a 1977 860cc Ducati which has been restored by the current owner and now has an estimate of £12,000 - £15,000.
