The list of production dates I have, gives the following information:
885 Q 11007846, production date November 1977
885 Q 11010513, production date December 1977
These dates are for 885 Q tractors with the Sekura S74 cab. The Sekura cab was used in Scandinavian countries because the UK Q-cab did not fulfil the regulations in the northern countries. The Q-cab had too small doors, had no roof hatch and the heater efficiency was not good enough for our cold climate.

But, this tractor is not in any Scandinavian Countries, it's in the UK so therefor it has the UK spec Q cab, either the first version with the narrow top doors, the VQ2 which had the wide top doors or the 'delux' 'super Q' Sekura cab. As for manufacture dates and serial numbers they were produced between 1976 to 1983 from serial number 1000001 to 11021851.

The cab you call "deluxe super Q Sekura cab" in the UK is the Sekura S74. This cab was developed by the Danish manufacturer Sekura A/S and was first built in the Sekura factory in Denmark and the cabs where shipped to Meltham to be fitted to the tractors. Later on Sekura opened a cab factory in UK.

885 narrow production continued into the early 1980s but surely production of the standard 885 ceased in 1979/80 when the 1190 replaced it

And both the 90- and 94-series tractors had the Sekura S80 cab.

The 885 narrow were produced alongside the 1190 up to and including 1983 because there was no narrow variant of the 1190. The 885Q was also produced alongside the 1190 up to and including 1983 as there was still a strong market for the model as the 1190 was not that popular, hence not many being produced. Both 885 models had their own 'designation', the Q cabbed 885 having the serial number prefix of model/type, 885Q, and the 885 narrow having the prefix 885N. The serial number range and production dates for the 885 that I included in an earlier post included all 885's, 885/1, 885Q, 885N and the 885G.
