I picked up this 10 yesterday. A friend of mine found it and sent me pictures almost two years ago and asked if I was interested. It says Massey on it so yes I was! From the pictures he sent I was pretty sure that it had the aluminum dash and nose cone. So time passed and I kept asking him about it, finally we were able to go check it out and yes it's an early 10 with the aluminum pieces. So yesterday I went to get it. It's rough but at least it isn't going to the scrap yard or end up deteriorating away to nothing. The fenders were off it and the shifter was pulled out of the transmission but I didn't really pay much attention to it. I just figured the fenders rusted off of it. It wasn't until I got home that I noticed the crack and big hole in the transmission. I'm not sure what I going to do with it yet. I'm considering getting it running and leaving the rusty look or just parts. But I keep adding more and more tractors to my "get to" list. Anyways I'm happy with my purchase, it's still neat that it's around after 51 years. I didn't get a good picture but the steering cap is actually in pretty good shape compared to everything else, it's not all yellowed and is clear.

If that was mine I'd change the trany with a good one, get it running and leave it as rusty as it is.
I'm with Doug. Should be plenty of those trannys about.

I'm going to get it going one way or another. I have a parts tractor that doesn't have a motor and is very rough. I'm going to pull the rearend out of it for this one. It'll be a while before I get to it, I've already committed myself to few other tractors. But maybe I can spend a little time to see if I can get the engine going. I think I'll hang on to the nose piece! lol. If it wasn't for that and the dash I probably wouldn't of got it. But thanks for the offer!
