I just picked up a 1972 MF12 Saturday, 500mi round trip. I paid $257 for it off ebay. It runs & drives good. It has factory headlights, taillight and lift hitch. It came with a very nice condition 630 dozer blade and a very solid, no rot deck. The deck is bent in a couple spots but will straighten out nice. The tires on it are firestone turf & garden, they look to be original but I don't know. I thought I saw some literature somewhere that showed these as an option but I can't find it, does anyone know? Also another cool feature on this tractor is that it originally had the power lift option. According to my mf12 parts book there were two versions of the power lift, one had a belt driven hydraulic pump and the other had a electric hydro pump attached to the cylinder. This tractor had the electric pump version. The pump/cylinder is missing and a manual lift arm has been put in its place. You can see in some of the pictures there is a stud sticking out of the deck hanger bracket next to the lift arm for the cylinder/pump to mount to. The switch for the lift on the dash, solenoid and wiring are still there. I would like to return it to power lift, I'll have to do some research. The parts book only shows the cylinder/pump itself, it doesn't show how it mounts to where the lift arm is. If anyone can give me any info on this I would appreciate it. The tractor is in really nice shape with very little rust or wear. When I get a chance I will disassemble it, clean it up, repair/replace what it needs and go threw it mechanically. The paint looks to be all original except for part of the battery box and some white paint that must have splashed on it. It is scraped/worn in many places but I think I'm going to leave it that way unless I see some parts that need protection from corrosion. I have other tractors that have already been molested that I'm going to restore but being that this one is in mostly original I think I like it that way.
