Was the super two the one that was £22,222 with 2 year finance?
If I remember right our 885XL was £11700 from Robert Taylor & sons back in spring ‘88.
Not a Super Two though, the old fella would not have paid extra for it if it was available, and I rather think they came a bit later on a “F” plate. 2 spools, 2 speed powershift (ta) and trailer brakes.

Makes about .5K quicker on the 12 38s
now that I would call a Tad, but some would argue it was a little more:ROFLMAO:

I don't think it was as little as that.
 
Ours was £12.5k in November 1986. Really an IH painted in new Case colours. Side driveline 4wd with " Difficult " lever. Easy enough to engage, but needed 2 blokes and a ratchet strap to disengage :ROFLMAO: . Not a bad tractor for the money though. Did 5000 hours, and moved it on. Had a new clutch, and the TA was..........ahem.........bolted together.:sorry:

The cab will have rotted out unfortunately.
Ours was on it’s way when it suddenly caught fire when parked in the shed and that delivered the ‘coup de grace’.
It also had the presence of mind to start it’s engine and drive forward into a stack of fertiliser as a parting shot.

Actually, it was a brilliant tractor that chopped thousands of acres of grass and only needed oil and filters for many years.
