last ever mccormick cx from doncaster


Recommended Posts

Did any one follow this?

They auctioned off the last ever CX ever made at doncaster.

I just found a pic of it and thought it would make a good model. 

If mccormick commisioned the silver jubilee, why didn'nt they do a model of the cx with fancy union jack livery.

Would of been a great model along side the silver jubilee mtx 175

There was some discussion about it at the time between UH and McCormick. The problem was that UH's McCormick CX105 had the low-profile cab roof while the last-ever CX 105 from Doncaster was a full-spec model. It would have been ready-made for a special edition if it wasn't for this.

Someone did start selling a custom-built version on eBay although I never actually saw the real model; they used a scan of the tractor on the front cover of Classic Tractor to try to sell the model, which asking permission, so sadly I had to ask them to remove the picture, but not the listing.

I don't know where you heard that but it's incorrect, it's actually gone to Cambridgeshire to SR and CA Haylock


Appologies Gav. The article I read about it was obviously a bit wrong although the name was right.  ::)
