I had this 1650 garden tractor for a few years, but never had much call to use it since I had so many others. Then my nephew asked if I had a heavy duty garden tractor I'd sell. I decided to let it go. He asked if I could restore it too, so shot him a cheap price for all. Basically I broke even $ wise & gave him my labor. He's a good nephew & never asks for any help on anything, so he's deserving of a big favor. If you knew some of my other nephews, you'd know just how deserving he is! LOL
Anyway, this is how she started out:
Mechanically she was ready to go.
I changed the color scheme to more match the full size Massey tractors. I think the flint metallic gray chassis looks better. There is a sticky thread with the Massey Ferguson paint codes and color schemes in the Massey & Snapper tractor forum.
Here's the red sheet metal painted. I used OE Massey enamel, with high quality wet look hardener.
Here she is completed & ready for him to pick up. Was an 8hr one way for him to come get her, but for some reason he didn't mind a bit! It's gonna make him a great garden tractor for sure!
I also let this rear 3pt mower in with the sale as I hardly ever used it. I built it from a Yard Man rider's 52" mower deck. He got a heck of a deal, tractor like new, new tires all around, with rear mower for $1550.00. BTW...I made these decals myself too. Had the wife help me when I overlaid the colors. Extra hands help a lot!
