"1960's Antique Massey Ferguson 12 lawn tractor with snowblower, front push blade, 3 sets of tires & rims, and many extra parts. This tractor has the rare seat and rounded fenders which are only seen on early models. Tractor starts easy (new battery) runs fine, blower needs a new belt. Would make a great unit for moving snow this winter. Rear weight included. $700.00 obo."

This is what happens when you leave a Wheel Horse and a Massey Ferguson sit together too long. The tractors get together and start mating! Wonder what the Wheel Horse looks like?

It almost looks like maybe an executive or moto-mower fender and tool box set up,but can't see the box real well.

As soon as I saw it I knew it was WH fenders. I wonder if he got it this way or is he that much of a bs'r?

I don't think those are Wheel Horse fenders. There's a ridge detail along the edge that I've not seen on any of the fenders that I have in my collection. I Don't believe that's a Wheel Horse seat either. That said, I don't have any clue what they are from.

Being it's such a rare machine, I'm surprised it doesn't have the 6 hole vented hood! (or was that 7 holes?) :smilewink:

Yep, I remember that one. LOL LOL
I think they're Moto-Mower/MF exec fenders.


Edit
Just had another look.
Nope, not MM, or MF exec fenders

Bolens fenders have a ridge similar to those... All painted up it might look pretty neat.

They look like they came from an early (like a 600) Bolens tube frame. Same tool box/tray connecting the fenders too.

To me, the ad just says BS. After a while, the BS seems to be easy to spot. That being said, it's not a bad look and might be cool if painted the right way.

It has an older style ammeter and the older shallow battery holder and looks to have the older aluminium decal serial tag (stuck on crooked), but the dash surround looks plastic and as Amigatec says it uses a starter motor. The harness looks odd and I can see no solenoid so maybe that is under the dash? Looks to me like someone put this together from the remains of an MF10 and an MF12. Looks like they made the clutch pedal work backwards as well.
