I have been looking for info on the cab that came on my tractor, it is a all metal cab that is definitely for the mf 14/16. it fits exactally. It has rubber on the sides that close up the front and a flap above the hood that allows you to raise the hood. it has one side window by your right leg, a main windsheild two doors with nice latches/ handles. It also has a back window. It has a windsheild wiper and a cigarette lighter up on the top front. It has a hole on the left side that I think maybe the snow blower handle goes through. It has been primered inside and out so I have no idea with out sanding what the original color was. I will get pics in the next day or two so you can see it. oh and its heavy ! like 150 lbs which means it really is more like 75 , lol. just feels heavy trying to put it on by myself. it goes on with four bolts through the fenders and floorboards. the doors are removable just lift and the three pins attached to the doors come out of the hinges that are made on the cab. pics coming soon !

Sounds like a nice cab, can't wait to see it. It will be a great addition to have if you ever plow or blow snow. :thumbs:

Welcome to GTTalk. Glad to have another Massey owner around. I've got a Massey MF-14 with a cab. Sounds like your cab is a bit different than mine but here's what mine looks like.

I've got some info on this cab if yours is anything like it. Looking forward to seeing pics of your cab. I like the sound of your doors.

That 16 looks to be in decent shape.What is peeling off of the fender pan?Hard to tell.A nice bath and a wax job it might look pretty good.

Man, Ive searched for hours with no joy on the cab, lol. My wife got the camera back today so tommorow I can get pics!  all I can say is this must be one rare cab! I have seen alot of soft cabs as well as metal frames soft sides, but no all metal ones.

My hunch is that you have a Cozy Cab. Google "Cozy Cab" and you'll find metal cabs with solid doors. Looking forward to seeing pics.

Nope....made for a variety of GTs. Each had a slightly different configuration to accommodate the tractor's design. Glad we were able to narrow it down.

Thanks again, Its nice to have a direction to go . I want to do a decent job fixing this tractor up, while still using it . But part of the enjoyment is the tractors unique look and history. I love how they copy the bigger tractors with the small versions.,
