Ok found this on CL 

 

The questions is has anybody seen this version of a 1855? Or has MF reincarnated an old tractor?

I'd buy it as it is, but I'd let him know it's not a Massey first!

I'd been looking at those FF's thinking " They aren't Masseys, I don't need one."  But by golly, I sure can see now how good one would look in Massey colors!!

Ok I am going to go look at it. His price is out in left field and thats ok. I would like to know where to find the Sears Data plate to maybe help him understand what he doesn't have and then get the price more in line.

It is a Sears, not MF. Someone just painted to look like the MF1855.

The Masseys were made by Snapper, two completely different tractors, other than maybe a couple shared parts like rear or hydro pump just cause that specific company made them all at that time.

Gotcha! thats interesting. I guess the guy really wanted a massey but he couldnt get one! :bigrofl:

 

I would get it thogh, the ffs are hard to find.

The model tag should be on the rear of the frame under the fenders if im not mistaken... Get it if it runs and goes good, cause the ff series are very limited

The Model/Serial plate is on the 'firewall' under the hood on the engine side. That would be on the left hand side sitting on the tractor. Don't know if I have a pic of the location or not.

If you look off the fuel line toward the other side, you can just make out the plate.
