Hey Guys,

 

I am planning to convert a Ford GT to a Minny Moline. I am looking for photos, parts manuals, or any other information that will help me. Did they make a 12hp. model? I have a Ford 120 to use if they did.

 

My significant other's father was a Engineer for the Moline company untill they were sold out and I would like to surprise her with a Gift.

 

Any help would be appreiated.

This should be fun to watch. Wish I could help here! I did upload some Oliver manuals. Not sure that would help with the Minnie, though. Seems there were some posted here painted in MM colors.

Just checked Tractor Data. There was a 12 HP MM GT. A 112, 1966-70.

 

Look here, post # 9.

I have no idea how many were made, but they are scarce as hens teeth.

Same tractor badged as Jacobsen, Moline, White, Ford, and (from what I gather) the rarest of them, Town and Country.

Dad forgot to mention that the Ford he has is a Hydro. Did they offer that in a Minni- Mo?

Yep, the 112 was a hydro. Shouldn't take much to change it over to being an MM.

Hey guys, thanks for the information and photos, they will all be very helpful.<br /><br />There are some great photos here. I had seen a Minny Moline back in the late 1960s, when we pulled stock appearing Garden Tractors with the Wabash Valley Tractor Pulling Asso. Our home pulling strip was in Greencastle, Indiana. It was a concrete slab a little over 120 ft. long. I could not remember what horsepower it was.<br /><br />Sorry, I haven't been on here for a few days so my replys are late.<br /><br />Tex Tractor Jack
