Quite a few were made, at least when considered "in mass". How the MF numbers stack up to other brands of GT's, I don't know. Around North Carolina, it looks like one or two of the old style show up every couple of months. The Tecumseh engine is no longer well supported, though I think if a determined effort was made you could find much of what you need. They seem to be more common farther north. Just depends on where there was a dealer actively selling them so many years ago.

Chris, That was the owner of the 100. Richard Jackson from Danville Iowa. I think his father bought that tractor new and never had anything done to it. Richard did the restoration a couple years ago and he had some work done on it but I am not sure what. When I pulled in his drive he came out of the house smiling and never stopped until I left. He was pretty happy to have this done also. He will soon be receiving an 8X10 framed for his wall.
Thanks for all the input from everyone, this was just one of those chances get run into once in a great while.

Yea he seemed happy! Thanks again for the pictures that was great! I really love these MF's Now. The way they are built and the style is awesome. They are like the 57 chevy of GT's.

The pictures are great and those GT's are fairly common up here. Much easier to find than a JD 110 or even a Bolens tube frame for instance. The 10's are probably the most common up here followed by 7/8's and the big boys 14/16 you don't see as often. The big MF farm tractors like that 1100 are a heavy strong looking tractor.
