Saw an ad in the Washington (state) craigs list for a MF10 for $450. Happened to be here in Montana 12 miles from me. I ended up buying it for $350, he was very nice and throw in two extra front wheels with newer tires on them so I gave him $375 (it's Christmas season). The price was still high I think for the shape as it is missing the gas tank. Haven't had much chance to look it over yet. It was after dark tonight when I went and got it, hard to see it when its under a tarp and two feet of snow.

Considering how big Montana is, it's a miracle that the tractor was located so close to you.

I look forward to some pictures!

No way!! That not only looks sweet, but from what it looks like, it might be an early 1966 with alloy cowl & trim! I think I can make out some flaked paint that reveals silver on the hood trim. Red painted PTO pedal & a starter / generator... check! The rear rims are not two tone, but the fronts appear to be, so I would assume replacement wheels (or repaints)

What's the serial number on it? If you just picked up a very clean 1966 with metal cowl & hood trim, you stole it for that price!

Looks pretty good there bud I see you have the 2 tone seat, white+black plus the PTO foot pedal appears to be non adjustable, the serial # is your best bet for dating your tractor. Look at the bottom of the frame where the engine is if no center rib, 66 for sure.

I see according to the Registry the serial # for you Massey MF10 is 003673 that makes it a 66 for sure with all the unique 66 features.
That's IMO one to keep.

With it being a 66' it is definitely a keeper. Looks like someone put different wheels on the rear from a newer year. I am trying to figure out why in the one pic it looks like the top of the hood slopes down. Might just be the angle of the pic.

Almost surely has points/magneto system too, so no expensive electronics issues. BUT the points plunger is NLA, so take extreme care with it. The points are NLA either, but points from a certain Kohler will work in it, but I'd have to look up which ones fit.

Yes, definitely an early one. Great shape for an early 1966 model too.....

I was told by the seller it was a 1969 but I too thought it could be earlyer. the engine numbers are HH100-115033, engine serial # 6077 12024. The rear wheels have been replace as they appear new and have new Carslile (spelling wrong ?) tires. The front I think are original, silver with red centers and Goodyear tires. Has Delco generater and a regulator thats bolted to the rusted out battery tray front. Thats about all I know so far. Thank you all for the comments.
