ive had a line on the following items for about 5 month, finally went and picked the items up today. turns out i should have gotten there sooner!!!! i picked up a tiller, with side extension (all the hardware to go with it to make it function) but the real bargin was the massey ferguson 10 hood with grill...but the headlight bezel on the hood turned out to be aluminum. i purchased the whole lot for a mere $125. how do you think i made out???

Just that nose is worth the price you paid for the whole assembly. Why can't I find these deals...I need that grill.

Same goes for the tiller.

the last "original" headlight ring i sold on ebay fetched $100. it was plastic, i estimate the aluminum bezel to be over $200....only problem you guys have is...its not for sale. sorry to be a douche, but i have the braggin rights to the aluminum headlight bezel. really wish i knew how many they made.

No problem. I actually have two aluminium noses. They were only produced for the first part of the 66 production year. Not sure how many, but I would guess around 3000 units had them? Where is the rest of that tractor?

thy guy apparently got pissed off at the tractor, tore it all apart scraped most of the metal including the alum. dash his scraper may have it still so i might be getting that as well.

That's a shame, it seems like it was in really good shape, based on the hood.

Just like the other guys said I can't believe the guy stripped it down with the hood and grill looking that good, they are the pieces that take the most abuse and most work restoring and that thing looks in excellent shape.

What a score, I got a good MF10 with great hood, nose piece, dash, no engine, bad tires for 35.00, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, love to have a tiller or a front blade, hint hint, any one ant to do some trading.
