Has anyone heard of a spirit of 76 Massey or dealer altered machines painted red white and blue?

I've seen photos and the minitures of a spirit large tractor in massey, I don't know if they were actual production or just done for promotion, Never heard of any in Massey small tractors, I know Case, Cub cadet, and Bolens all did spirit lawn or garden tractors.
Case there was only like 6 ever done, Cub did it on there 382 and Bolens was a decal set ,but was installed by the dealers

The Cub version was done on a 76 chassis and not a 382 chassis. They have the same look as a 129 tractor just smaller.

I know the The Ertl toy company made a plastic model of a 1155 in the spirt of 76 and I believe a few years ago they came out with one in a diecast model. Never seen a real 1155 painted up that way though. But being that it is a MF14 or 16 should put it in the same time bracket.

That's a seriously nice tractor. If it was actually factory paint it is extremely rare. If not it's still a really great looking tractor that will make heads turn!

I would have to believe that someone painted that to look like a spirt tractor that would be my guess.But who knows anything is possable!
