If the weather cooperates in the morning I am going to get a chance to photograph my MF10 up be side a fully restored 1965 MF1100. I have seen pictures of the tractor but have not seen it up close. I am very much looking forward to this.

An 1100 is a 95 HP farm tractor that look like the MF 10-12 series GTs.

I gotta do that sometime! I have both an MF12 & MF1100, plus a MF1130. Plus my "2055" I made from a 1650 with an earlier MF14 hood, grill, and dash.

Very nice Daniel. I really like the styling of the HP number series Massey GT's because they echo the styling of the big tractors of that time with the distinctive grill. The biggest Massey of roughly that era that I've seen is a 165. It was a pretty strong looking beast. In doing some reading on MF recently I discovered that at one time MF was run by no other than the now infamous Conrad Black. The company was a true Canadian success story.

Well I went over first thing this morning with rain in the forecast, he got his 1100 out and I started shooting I got the last shot just as it was starting to rain. This is a 1965 MF1100 with my 1968 MF10. Hope you like them.

Great Pics! I'd like to put my MF 8 up with a 135. I think those two look similar. Anyone ever put 20x8x8 lug tires on an MF8?

Quite a few were made, at least when considered "in mass". How the MF numbers stack up to other brands of GT's, I don't know. Around North Carolina, it looks like one or two of the old style show up every couple of months. The Tecumseh engine is no longer well supported, though I think if a determined effort was made you could find much of what you need. They seem to be more common farther north. Just depends on where there was a dealer actively selling them so many years ago.
