I made this slide show as a complement to all those who have saved many old Massey's from the scrap yards. Some of these were fixed up to use and some were restored to mint condition. Some were restored to work or pull and some were restored for show. What ever the reason they were brought back to life and provided many hours of entertainment for their restorer. I hope you enjoy it and I hope I did not offend anyone buy using or not using their photos. I just pulled some of them off this site. The music is from a souvenir album that was given to MF dealers at the February 20,21st 1959 North American Dealer Convention in Detroit Michigan. I remember my dad playing this record when we were kids and I finally found it this last week. I wanted a proper way to share it with all of you. So enjoy it.

That was fantastic, thanks Dan. Not just for the video, but for the song too. :thumbs:

If you have that song in mp3, you could add it to the Massey Misc files.

You did a great job on the video Dan.

I love the way they used to do marketing, I never knew about the album but even with the magazine ads that I have been collecting it is just neat seeing and now hearing how they did marketing :D
