Hi David, didn't know you were not aware of this. I think the consensus is that AMF made these tractors for Massey, but also put some out under their own badge. I think OldBuzzard recently had a thread going, as he was eyeing an AMF up his way.
On a different note, there is a gear Massey for sale on craigslist around Denton, or was it Thomasville? You seen that one yet?
The Massey 1655 and 1855 were made by Snapper for Massey, and I suspect that the 1200, 1450, and 1650 all had Snapper cousins.
In the 90's? Case made some machines for Massey. I saw a 216 low wheel variant for sale down towards Wilmington several months ago. I'd love to get my hands on a 3xx series, as that is the high wheel variant, same as the 4xx or 4xxx series from Case.
