We purchased this tractor form it original owner last December and did a complete disassemble and restore. It was purchase from Vanderloop Implement in Brillion Wi 1977 about the same time as I bought our 1855.
It was repower with the Performer 20. We also got the last motor that is tight and it also was a Performer 20. The guy said his wife had a problem keeping oil in it. It came with a cab, blower, tiller, and grader blade.
It's duties are tilling and will be blowing some snow this winter.

I'd like to nominate my 1978 Massey Ferguson 1655.I bought it last year to replace the 1655 I foolishly sold the year before . It has a few scratches but maybe one of these days I will dismantle and repaint it. With this tractor I also got a cab,front blade,front mount snow blower.and 54" mid mount mower deck.Right now I just use it to haul around a small trailer.Here is the one and only picture I have of it at the moment.

I bougth my 1976 MF 1655 at a Dealer Liquidation Auction Sale in 2000.It was in running but in rough shape.The tiller and mower deck came with it.The mower deck needed lots of TLC .I made the deck into a offset type blade deck[no more need cogged pulleys and timing belts.I bought and installed a Cub Cadet quick attach loader onto it.This tractor has also been repowered with a Honda V Twin 20 HP.This tractor is used extensively for everything under the sun.It's a strong working machine that makes doing things with it lots of fun.Larry

OK then, I'll enter my not so pretty MF1655. It's a 1655, but with an 18hp engine update. Have my home built front loader on it. Left off the rear lift & rear PTO to put permanent counterweights on the rear of the frame. Also added power steering. Cut the hood sides to help aid engine cooling. Bought this rolling chassis minus engine from a member of GTT, Mike from Lebonon, Ky. Had to do some hydro repair, but she's strong as ever now. Rebuilt a B48G I already had & put in her after a while using a BF Onan.
She ain't pretty, but she's a hard worker. Cleans my calf stalls, large calf pens, & quite a bit of dirt work too.
Wasn't going to enter this month, but I was called out on this one! :D
