Good luck with the MM conversion.  I'm interested to see how it progresses.

The color you want to use is the high energy yellow, or in the newer paint books, it is called Penske yellow [ when you buy that many trucks you can get a color named after ya] . Moline went from praire gold to yellow the same time White bought them

I have seen at least 2 of them, both restored. Nice machines!! The guy also has several Olivers, Fords, Jakes and others mostly stored on shelves. Probably at least 80 to 100 GTs

If you make this be sure to mark it as a fake Minnie-Mo.

Back about 1978 my FIL gave me a MM tractor. It had a mowing deck a cultivator of some sort and a hydraulic snow plow. I remember it had a large Kohler engine on it and had 13 inch tires. Back then I had no use, knowledge or any interest
in a garden tractor. I sold it to a guy I worked with for 100 bucks. I have not seen it or one like it since. I sure wish I had it back now. I wonder what model it was?

I've used Case/IH Federal Yellow for lots of MM stuff and if you like more orangy yellow, the Power Yellow they offer is closer to the older MM color. Good paint too!  I posted pix of a Sears I painted up MM in the Sears section here last week!

I think one of the main differences between a Ford and a Moline - aside from color and decals - is the grille screen, and naturally the serial tag has Minneapolis-Moline on it instead of Ford Motor Company. I believe that there are reproduction screens among other parts available at stammtractors.com. Here are some pictures of a couple MM 110s I picked up yesterday. One is a 1966, the other a 1967 model. There are a few noticeable differences between these two years. The good thing about these tractors is that virtually all the parts interchange from Ford Jacobsen MM and White making parts much easier to come by.

That sounds like a collection I'd like to see!

Very nice looking pair of original MM. How did you figure out what year model those are?

Thanks, I'd like to think that I am just that familiar with these tractors :D  I can't say based on the model or serial number since information on those numbers has not yet been found that I am aware of. My observations tell me that Jacobsen had redesigned the tractors for '66. I have a 1965 MM 108 and the foot rests are the same between the 65 and 66, but otherwise the two tractors are unique. Another indicator is the engine year-code B (1966).

 

The '67 and newer tractors had platforms instead of foot rests. The engine in this tractor also has year-code B so I figure it has a leftover engine from the previous year and thus likely that it was assembled in early '67. There is a manual PTO on this tractor too. I believe these tractors were using an electric PTO by 1968. I also have a MM 110 Hydro with an electric PTO and a D-coded engine (1968). Without serial number info to go on, this one could be a 1968 or 1969 model-year. It is generally accepted that the Whites replaced MM and were built in 1970. However, my White 114 has a 1969 engine.... Possibly the same scenario as my 1967 MM 110. You can see a picture of the 114 in the "want to know more about Whites" post.

 

As far as I can tell, the Jacobsen "body-styles" are 1961-1962, 1963-1965, 1966-1971 and then the major redesign using the tube-frame chassis in 1971 and up. Long story short, there is not a model/serial decoder available for MM garden tractors, but there are a few things to look for that can help identify a year, even within certain body styles.
