Ah, yes, the fabled "Ferguson tractor engine," which, of course, was actually a Standard-Triumph engine that happened to have been developed for the Vanguard AND the Ferguson tractor, and ultimately also used in a few little sports cars -- TRs, I believe they were called. ;)
The engine in question here actually started out at a whopping 803cc and eventually grew all the way to 1.5L in four-cylinder form and to 2.5L in six-cylinder form!

... Motor Trend channel, the most recent episode of "My Classic Car" is
on a car show in upstate NY, and features a couple of minutes on a 1958
TR10 in the show, which is reputed to be in virtually (slight
modification to the accelerator pedal) original condition. The owner,
quite willing to show it off, nevertheless makes the rookie error of
saying it had a "Ferguson tractor engine" (the engine in the 10 was a
948cc derived from new designs in 1953, and as far as I know, was never
shared with Ferguson).
