I found this one at a local MF dealer on the back row, but haven't tried to do a deal on it. It looked rough to me, but the deck looked good.

Thanks everyone for posting pics of different number 8 Masseys.

 

The motor condition, I forgot to ask about.

 

The guy that has it told me that he thought that these were a rare find also because of the hydro. He has collected for 20+ years and had never seen one either.

 

In my collection I have three number 7 and one number 8 and all are gear shifts. The number 10 I have is also a gear shift.

 

I don't know why that the hydro style didn't catch on better in this area in these models???

They may have been higher priced.

That Massey trailer looks to be in really good condition. That should make for a easy restore and a nice accessory at the shows.

That was my thoughts, very little surface rust and no dents.

They may have been higher priced.


I'm pretty sure that's what the difference was. If you think back, these 7 & 8's were the dealership LT's of their day. To today's standards , however, they are probably better built than anything you could find new.
